Paint a fairy house flowerpot

Choose a flowerpot – a terracotta pot is the best type to use as the paint will take well to the surface.

What you’ll need

  • Flowerpot
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Water or Coloured pens
  • Gloss varnish (optional)

Firstly, wash your flower pot and let it dry.

Then, turn your flowerpot upside down and start to paint your fairy house. You can draw your design on with a pencil first so that you get it right.

Let the paint dry and then, if you have it, give it a coat of varnish to make it look shiny (this is optional). Find the perfect spot in your garden and wait for the fairies to arrive!
