Let's make fruit fairy houses DIY.
It's super easy. You don't need to be a crafting pro to pull it off. Even if you're a newbie in the craft game, you've got this!
Now, who doesn't adore fruits, right?
Picture this: as you munch on your favorite fruits, ever wondered if tiny fairies could call them home? I sure have! And that got my creative juices flowing.
So, I've whipped up a whole series of these adorable fruit fairy houses, and I'm psyched to share them with you.
If you've been tuning in to my YouTube channel, you might have caught a glimpse of these fruity wonders. Since I'm not much of a talker in my videos – just captions and subtitles (sometimes) – I thought I'd spill all the juicy details about my crafty creations right here.

Let's craft fruit fairy houses DIY with me.
So, I found myself caught between two choices for my fruit fairy houses DIY – should I go for a modern or classic style? I decided to consult some of my little friends, you know, the tiny tots who are big fans of fairies (ha..ha..).
Guess what they told me? "Fairies aren't a new thing, they've been around for thousands of years! They dwell in beautiful houses, but definitely not in a modern one – it has to be an old, charming house."
Now, I'm a fan of the simple shapes we find in modern designs, but no worries! I've got a plan – I'll jazz it up with some paint to give the house that old, charming vibe. Double the fun with my fruit fairy houses DIY adventure!

Mini Gourd Fairy House
Fantasy Mangosteen Fairy House
Tomato Fairy House
What if tomato can grow money? ugh...that's impossible, right? The possible one is to save money in this cute little tomato fairy house money bank/ piggy bank.
Isn't it nice to make a unique but useful craft? This would be one of thoughtful gift ideas.
And, we don't need to spend a lot of money to make this project.
I make this fairy house with cardboard, vitamin plastic bottle, and old newspaper. I use paper mache technique to make this tomato.
As for the clay, I use homemade newspaper clay recipe.
Lemon Fairy House
My lemon tree is my inspiration for this craft. I saw one lemon fell on the ground with its tiny twig piercing the ground. I thought..oh that's how the lemon stand on the ground :)
So, I make lemon fairy house with that scene in mind.
I use balloon as mold then cover it with craft plaster cloth to make the lemon shape. Finally, I use best homemade clay recipe with additional tissue paper.
Pomegranate Fairy House
Are you thinking of deep maroon or red wine color for pomegranate? I was thinking the same too. But, my tree at the backyard telling me different thing. Our pomegranate fruits have never given us that deep red wine color fruit, instead of yellowish or light color. Look at below picture.
So, I've painted my pomegranate fairy house with this image in mind.
Again, beside of night light or decoration for indoor fairy garden, we can use this pomegranate house as pen holder or planter for artificial flower. It looks awesome for home decoration.
What do you think?
Watermelon Fairy House
Do you know that the farmers are getting creative nowadays? They grow watermelon in any kind of shapes. That inspire me to make cylindrical watermelon fairy house with used jar.
Isn't it good to upcycling old jar to an art piece?
This time, I've painted the door with a little bit of modern design where the lights shine out through the seeds.
Do you like this style of design?
Strawberry Fairy House
Do you know there is white strawberry? I almost make white strawberry fairy house but then I have changed my mind and chose unripe strawberry color for my house :)
I use clay texture paste and homemade clay for this project.
Acorn Fairy House
If you search the internet, most of acorn fairy houses were designed vertically. I've challenged myself to make a horizontal acorn house.
I am using a jar, so, I have added cardboard pieces to form the acorn shape. I am very happy with the final result, especially with the cap that was sculpted with clay (again, I used basic homemade clay recipe with additional tissue paper).
This is the end but not the last project of fruits fairy houses. They are many ideas in my mind now waiting for the realization.
So, stay tuned.
Pumpkin Fairy House
Yeah...that's right! Here it is new project for fruits fairy house uploaded to my channel.
Green Apple Fairy House
Tadaa....another new project for fruits fairy house uploaded to my channel. Have you watched it?
Banana Fairy House
Then, I have a new idea again for fruits fairy house when I ate my banana. Yeah....will fairy lives in banana house? tooth fairy maybe? LOL.
So, I built the house with used jar, cardboard, paper, and homemade air dry clay with texture paste basic ingredient
Pineapple Fairy House
It is summer in Melbourne, Australia and there are pineapple almost everywhere in grocery stores around our area. I love the fruit though it's not easy to peel off the skin. It took me sometimes and while peeling the pineapple skin I was amazed with its beauty.
Thought, it would be nice to make pineapple fairy house. So, here I am sharing another idea for fruits fairy house.
Don't worry! it is very easy to make this house using jar and air dry clay (any types/ brands). In this craft project I use clayitnow's best homemade clay recipe.
