Was digging through the woodpile and decided to make a farie cottage. Used a small hickory limb for the cottage trunk and bradford pear bark for the roof. Very relaxing to make, no rules, and it can become whatever your imagination spits out.

Put it in our Etsy shop. We’ll see what happens. Thanks for looking.

This is a great idea for craft fairs; i’m sure they will sell very well. How do you craft the roof exactly?

Thanks everyone. It was a lot of fun to make. Dale, to make the roof I cut angled notches around the top of the log, then hot glued little trusses into the notches to support the bark strips, which were hot glued into place.
