I recently read an article about a forest in England that has a serious fairy door problem. They keep popping up everywhere! Sometimes up to 20 doors on a single tree. I couldn’t help but think to myself, this has to be the most magical problem ever! With all that goes on in the world, this could be the best problem I’ve ever heard of.
I don’t mean to minimize the plight of the forrest keepers. I’m sure monitoring fairy activity takes up a good amount of time, especially with them being all tricky and elusive. Plus, I have no idea what proper fairy occupancy on a single tree would even be. I thought I’d lend a hand and possibly offer these fairies a sweeter place to roam. A little wafer cookie fairy house to call their own.
What You Need
- Neapolitan wafer cookies
- Jelly Beans
- Confetti sprinkles
- Flower shaped sprinkles
- Mini Jawbreakers
- Small knife
- Extra frosting, royal icing, or candy melts (to use as “glue”)
Cut one of your wafer cookies in half on a diagonal.
Trim the other side of the cookie to match, creating the peak of your fairy house roof. Use the lines on the cookie as your guide.
Flip the other side of the cookie around and line the bottom up with the base of the roof. Trim the bottom flat. This will become your side walls.
Stand your wafer cookie pieces up and cut them down the middle, leaving two peaked walls and two side walls.
Assemble your fairy house using a little of the cookie frosting as “glue”.
