How to Make a Fairy Feel Welcome

How to make a fairy feel welcome? Fairies are shy little creatures, who are easily scared away, but there are simple things we can do to make them feel at home. 

Fairies are tiny, magical beings who look like humans but are only a few cm tall. They are very pretty and delicate, with shimmery wings that leave a trail of sparkly fairy dust wherever they go.

It is said that fairies have been around for thousands of years and come from a place that cannot be seen by humans. They are known to be very shy but when they feel comfortable and safe around you, they love to visit and will often leave little notes to communicate with you.

They especially love children and prefer to live as near to you as they can, so they can keep watch over you through the night. That’s why fairies love to set up fairy doors in your bedroom.

A fairy feels welcome when you….

  1. Create a Comfortable Home for Her

    Making a fairy feel comfortable and safe is a sure way to encourage her to stay.

    Firstly, a Fairy Door is key. A tiny door lets a fairy know that she is welcome to come and go whenever she wants to.

    Then, add little decorative touches to your fairy door to make it feel like home.

    Things like:

    – A Table & Chair Set and a Fairy Tea Set for her to enjoy afternoon tea. Maybe even include a Fairy Cake or 2!

    – A Lounge Chair for her to relax in and a little book for her to read.

    – Create a tiny fairy garden outside her fairy door. Fairies love flowers and one of her favourite activities is to look after a garden to help it grow. Set up things like a mushroom, flowers and a grass mat. You could also include some tools for your fairy to use, such as Garden Tools, Brooms, Wheelbarrow and Bucket.


    A fairy LOVES to receive letters from you! Which is why a Fairy Mailbox is her favourite item next to her fairy door. 

    She enjoys finding out what your name is, what you like, who your friends are and lots of other things about you. She will then start sending you tiny notes sharing all the things she enjoys also.

    We have a helpful post on How to Write Fairy letters which gives some great ideas.

    Fairies don’t like mess and so a great way to make a fairy feel welcome is to tidy your bedroom.

    Fairies feel unsafe when things are all over the place and untidy. So always keep your room clean and tidy so your little fairy enjoys living there.How to make a fairy feel welcome

  4. BE KIND

    Fairies are always kind to each other and love to be around people who are also kind.

    Being kind and friendly to others, treating others the way you want to be treated, will create an environment where a fairy feels safe and welcome.
