Painted rock fairy houses are really popular because like little stone houses, they are easy to make. All you need is a good sized rock and some paint! You can even pick up some rocks in a garden or craft store if you can’t find any in your garden.

It’s a matter of stenciling on an image or freehanding, depending how crafty you are, and then painting.

Round rocks are the most common shape. Be sure to start off with a nice clean surface. You should wash your rocks prior to painting so you have a nice surface to work on.

This will ensure the best possible result.

This jagged-edged rock is the perfect shape for this sloped-roof house. We love the added touch of the lit up windows and the shutters. These rocks look great in amongst your plants and could even make a perfect door stop.

Rocks Painted by Unicatella

Artist Unicatella painted these lovely looking mini rocks. They look like they are from another world with their pretty balconies and old-fashioned details. They would look lovely in potted plants.

Here is a great tutorial from the book ‘Painting on Rocks for Kids’ by Lin Wellford (available on Amazon). She uses a pencil to sketch the design she’d like, then paints in the main colors. A much smaller brush is used for inside the windows, and the door. She then traces around the lines with a marker for a clear design.

Doors of Perception from MyGardenRocks on Etsy

This little fairy door comes from an Etsy seller and artist who makes all sorts of things out of rocks. This very thin, flat rock made a perfect door. With painted wildflowers, it looks beautiful.
