LOOK: Amazing Woodland Fairy House Hidden in This Billings Park
Okay, it's not hidden that well.
The intricately detailed fairy house is less than ten feet from a paved trail. I was told where to look by my friend Nikki, who discovered the magical miniature house over Memorial Day Weekend. It's not hidden deep in the woods. You'll find it about 100 yards from the parking lot. But if you didn't know it was there and aren't looking in the right spot, you could easily walk right by without seeing this truly unique piece of art. I'll give you an obvious clue on where to find it at the bottom of this story.
What are fairy houses or fairy gardens?
My almost-seven-year-old was gifted a plant-it-yourself fairy garden kit a few years ago by a co-worker. I was like, "What's a fairy garden?" As the plants grew, the gallon-pot-sized diorama turned out beautiful. My kid still enjoys the miniature fantasy land; placed carefully on her bedroom windowsill.
This fairy house is about 3 feet tall.
As you can see in the photo above, it's quite camouflaged. You can barely see it without squinting from the path, just a few feet away. But step closer, and you'll notice dozens of intricate details!
Someone spent a lot of time making the creation.
Crunching under the shady canopy of the park, I crouched down to the tiny house and peered into each of the three levels. The longer I looked, the more I saw. I'm well beyond believing in fairies, but I think I may have felt a little bit of magic as I examined the tiny woodland home.
I started taking pictures from the top floor down.
Throughout the house are hundreds of little details.
Tiny toadstools and various bric-a-brac continue to the next level.
Look at the tiny little picket fence!
Every good fairy house needs a nice crystal chandelier.
Here's your clue.
Cross this bridge and start looking to your right. My girls would love to discover this fairy house. I'm planning on not telling them about it and then acting really surprised when we "find it." I hope that the little piece of fairyland, tucked into the forest doesn't get destroyed. I have no idea how long it's been there. It seems well-made and mostly covered in Mod Podge to help protect it from the elements. Please respect the forest fairy art if you find it so others can enjoy the magic. If you know any more details about the fairy house, I'd love to hear from you. Email: Michael@BillingsMix.com
