How to create fairy door scenes? The magic of a fairy door is in the imagination and sense of wonder it brings. When a child sees a fairy door on their wall, an amazing world of make believe opens up to them. A world of unlimited possibility, a world of happiness and a world where they can share in the joy of who lives behind the door.
You are the “secret” behind this wonder. As the ‘Chief Secret Fairy”, you are the one who keeps the magic alive by writing secret fairy letters, leaving little gifts from the fairies and even accessories for your children to create different fairy scenes outside their fairy door.
When you can “secretly” interact and engage with your child through their fairy door, you are keeping the innocent magic alive and helping them develop their creativity and sense of imagination.
How to Create Fairy Door Scenes
Creating different themes outside your child’s fairy door inspires their creativity and inbuilt sense of story telling. It’s the little details that add life and personality to a fairy door.
Or leave a fairy note in their mailbox.
Just by making small changes every so often to a fairy door, keeps the magic alive too. If whilst walking, you find a pretty flower, pick it and leave it outside their fairy door as a surprise. If you find a pretty shell at the beach, take it home to leave as a gift from the fairies. Magical surprises do not need to cost money.
Or create some more detail like decorating for a birthday.
We have gorgeous birthday accessories like balloons, fairy birthday cards and birthday cakes available. Plus we have a pretty fairy-birthday-garland printable available to hang above their fairy door for this special occasion.
Accessories to create a fairy door scene make a perfect gift too! Collect all the little decorative items to create whatever scene you like, wrap them up and leave the package outside your child’s fairy door.
They will have so much fun placing all the little accessories and telling stories with them.
We are often asked where we get our accessories from to create our fairy scenes?
- Our Opening Fairy Doors shop is the biggest place to find the accessories in our scenes.
- We also provide many free templates in our other blog posts. These you can download, print and use in your own fairy scenes.
- Also, keep your eye open at markets, in toy stores and dollshouse shops for little miniature items. These are perfect for creating amazing themes.
Below we share some ideas on how to create fairy door scenes, hopefully these will also inspire you!
One of the more detailed fairy scenes we’ve created is our Great Australian Fairy Bake Off theme. It was so much fun to make and our little ones spent days and days playing with it. Even now, they often pull out all the pieces to recreate it over and over again.
Many of the accessories to create this fairy scene were obtained from dollshouse shops
A good tip is that we pack each of our fairy scenes into separate containers, so they can be recreated and enjoyed later. We label each container so we can easily see what they’re for. This keeps everything together and minimised loss. This also helps teach our children to look after and organise their precious little bits and pieces.
