Recycle your old cardboard tubes to create these budget friendly homes for the resident fairies. All you need is a bit of paint and some patterned paper. The windows in these fairy houses make fantastic night lights (using fake tea lights of course).

Allow the paint to dry, then glue on some pretty decorations - you could use glitter and sparkles too.

Use some patterned paper to make the cone shaped roofs of the fairy houses and glue the ends together.
