Hi, in this tutorial I show you how I made a fairy house lamp recycling some cardboard from an old box, egg cartons, pizza boxes, toilet paper tubes and two plastic bottles.
The only bought materials I used are the acrylic colors, the hot glue and the P.V.A. glue (less than 3$ in total). It took me about ten days to finish, including the drying time. Let me know what you think!

After cutting the bottom of a bottle, I glued a piece of cardboard to it like this
By gluing old magazines to the bottle, I made the “foundation” of the house
I also used old egg cartons to make it sturdier
When the foundation is ready, it’s time to move further
Creating a carcass of the house using some cardboards and old pizza boxes
Making sure everything is stable
Gluing another bottle to the side of the house
This will be our little cell!
Taking care of the windows
Then, I poured some hot water onto the egg boxes and mixed everything together with PVA glue
I carefully applied the mass I’ve got onto the entire house
It should look something like this
Adding the final touches
Making the stairs…
…and the roof
Last but not least – painting everything!
This is how the finished DIY fairy house looks like
