In our backyard, we found we had some enchanting neighbors magically appear.
We’re fairly sure it’s Fairies.

They have inspired us to create some magical fairy doors with all of you!

Garden Fairy Doors

Fairy Flutterby - Drawing - GardenFairies.ca

Fairy Door - Garden Fairy Doors - GardenFairies.caEach of these are one-of-a-kind magical doors.  Some, more stylish, made with found Fairy Flowers - Drawings of whimsy - GardenFairies.caobjects and brightly decorated.  These doors seem to belong to Garden Fairies.

Each is made of up-cycled wood, and adorned with found objects.  Frequently, they are brightly colored, and decorated with shiny accents, and embellished with any number of beads, bottle caps, flower pots, or trinkets.  The roofs seem to (mostly) be made out of branches they’ve split. (Apparently, Garden Fairies are both industrious and resourceful.)

Gnome Homes Fairy Flowers - Drawing - GardenFairies.ca

Gnome Home - Garden Fairy Doors - GardenFairies.caOther doors are different, made from roughly-hewn wood, and not decorated artistically, at all… other than the beautiful curves and arches of the wood, made by Mother Nature!  We believe these are Gnome Homes.

They are one-of-a-kind doors, made from wood, but there are mostly no bright colors or decorations.  Man-made objects are eschewed, as they seem to favor more practical hand-made items, such as a planter, mailbox, or a dragonfly house… and nary a found object or man-made item in sight.

Woodland Fairy Doors

Woodland Door - Garden Fairy Doors - GardenFairies.caThen there are the Woodland Fairy Doors.

They’re smaller than the average fairy door, as they are tiny doorways carved into sections of tree trunks and branches. Their architecture seems to favor the shapes created by Mother Nature. They are particularly fond of the pinecone roof style, but as far as color, materials and adornment – anything goes… there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason… but they are gorgeous, whether for inside the house, or out in the garden!Fairy Flowers - Drawings of whimsy - GardenFairies.ca

Beachcomber Fairy Doors

A bit bohemian in nature, they scavenge the shores for beautiful shells and pieces of nature-carved driftwood, which have been miraculously carved by the ocean and bleached by the sun, to create their homes.

Some fairies are not the outdoorsy types.

We’re sure they come and go, but they are mostly homebodies who prefer the warmth of a cozy bookshelf or potted fern.  They are just not interested in the great outdoors or “roughing it”.

Their doors come in every style and color, although they tend to be a little more sophisticated, elegant and ornate.

In December, we’ve seen some Elf Doors “pop” up.  They are a much more “Seasonal” entryway!

Hobbit Holes

Hobbit Hole - Garden Fairy Doors - GardenFairies.caAnd then, there are the Hobbit Holes… the rarest of them all!

No two doors are alike.  Made from magnificent branches, the Hobbits seem to like to mix brightly-colored earth tones with the natural beauty of wood.Fairy Flowers - Drawings of whimsy - GardenFairies.ca

And the doors are ALWAYS round.  They also seem to be very independent, and do not care for glitzy man-made objects or excessive decorations.

Recently, the Garden Fairies have taken up residence in one of our planters, with a coffee pot home, a wishing well, and a tree fort.  Because we own Haute Note – a personalized stationery company, we were MOST excited to see that even magical creatures are a fan of handwritten correspondence!  See the little letters in their mail box?  Perhaps a note from a Gnome back home?  A letter from a Leprechaun?  A Hi Howdy from a Hobbit?  A postcard from a Pixie?  We can only wonder if snails actually deliver the Snail Mail!

Take a peek at the video below, and see how creative they’ve been, buildingFairy Flowers - Drawings of whimsy - GardenFairies.ca their home and accessories from found objects, using twigs, branches, bark, bottle caps, game pieces, wine corks, buttons, old keys and more!
