As I mentioned on Friday, this weekend I had the honor of helping set up a first birthday party for a precious little angel named Harper Grace. Ms. Harper is one of my best friend’s daughters and is like family to me so I wanted to get her something special for her birthday. I have had this little idea for one of the presents I wanted to get her for some time now. For a year or so, I have been noticing these little doors in the wood section of Hobby Lobby and when I picked one up one day and turned it over, I noticed it was called “Enchanted Fairy Door.” If that is not the most fantastic thing ever, I don’t know what is. Obviously, we all need tiny magic doors so that fairies can get in our houses. I think imagination and magic are a very important part of childhood and so I thought this would be perfect for Harper.
I just used basic craft paint and glitter to decorate it. I decided that the door obviously needed to be pink. Harper’s room also has green in it so I added some green. If you can see, the brick is a very pale green by Martha called Artichoke. I also added Martha glitter paint over the brick to add a small amount of sparkle.
To add the glitter above the door and on the panels, I used Martha’s glitter glue pen and glittering glue. What is a fairy door without fairy dust after all?
In truth, I have kind of been obsessing over the idea of having one in my house. But I am not sure that is something that I could get away with at this age. Youth is totally wasted on the young.
