Beach Pebble Stacked Stone Fairy House in Progress

Here’s what’s on my worktable: I’m creating fairy houses from stone. This one is created from rounded beach pebbles that I picked up on the Jersey shore. For a base I used a small flat slab of stone that I found in the back yard. I used glue to hold the stacked stones in place as I built the walls then I backed the walls with premixed grout for added stability. I wanted a dry stacked look which you see on old stone walls in my area sometimes.

I used about three different types of glue: Liquid Nails, E-6000, and some Craft Goop. So far the E-6000 is my favorite.

The above two shots are of the front of the house. I managed to make an arched doorway. The first one I made fell apart so I ended up making it flat on the table on a piece of waxed paper and then attaching it to the walls. I have no idea how I’ll make the door yet.

The side of the house is kind of narrow (above). You might be able to see some glue oozing through that has dried. I’m not sure how I’ll cover this up yet.

The back of the house has a window. I don’t know yet if I’ll frame it out or not.

Now for the roof…
