Step 1: Find a suitable location for your house. A shady, sheltered spot with a bit of sunshine nearby is ideal. The base of a tree or the shade of a pine branch is a good choice.
Step 2: Gather building materials: stone,sticks and pieces of wood are the best choices.
Step 3: Build: Any shape is fine, but don't make your house too complicated or large.
Step 4: Gather decorating materials: interesting leaves, acorn caps, pine cones, berries and flowers are all pretty. You want your house to be inviting.
Step 5: Build Faerie Furniture and other items: tables, chairs, beds, dishes, etc.
Step 6: Leave it alone for a while. When you come back, check to see if anything has moved - if the answer is yes, than a faerie has visited your house!
