Magical Miniature Door Ideas
Whether you want to make a fairy door from scratch, buy a kit and decorate it, or get something ready-made, there are a few things to consider first.
I’ll walk you through some tips, and idea galleries for tutorials, supplies, as well as ready-made doors.
Fairy Door Tips
- Size matters. Keep all your fairy garden accessories in proportion to each other, otherwise they will look odd. This post on choosing plants for a miniature garden has more tips about scale.
- Materials matter. If you want a long-lasting fairy door in your garden all year-round, choose strong materials. Popsicle sticks and balsa wood are good for indoor crafts only.
- Do you want a door that really opens? Most fairy doors do not actually open, so you’ll either need a ready-made door or a tutorial for one with a door frame and hinges.

Mini Door Hardware
Make sure any hardware you choose is in proper scale or proportion to the door.
You could also go for the rustic look, which I love, and just tack some twigs across the doorway:
