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.

Here is another example of how the strangest looking rocks can work! This version looks like it might have been taken from a construction site. Whilst mainly flat, the artist managed to turn it into a beautiful creation!
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.
