A drawing of a Fairy House, made with the help of an easy step by step tutorial.

Fairy Houses are small whimsical dwellings for fairies to live in. This one is based on the shape of a mushroom and borrows the idea of having a “cap” for a roof. The best thing about learning how to draw a fairy house, is that it can tap into all kinds of creative possibilities.

Aside from the fun elements though, this lesson could also teach a lesson about one of the Principles of Design. Proportion, which is shows the scale of something, can only be seen when there is something of reference that makes a shape look large or small. This house will look tiny when any flowers around it look as big as trees. There’s a hint of this going on in my sample drawing, but the notion could be pushed even further, by making the flowers even larger. Or smaller. Those choices are part of what makes drawing so much fun!

Materials to Draw a Fairy House

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
