If you have a tree in your garden like the one in the picture there is no need to despair. With a little simple DIY you can convert the eyesore into an adorable fairy door. These doors are springing up all over the place. In fact a garden without a fairy door is considered to have something lacking. The tree does not have to be rotten. It just needs to have a trunk that is thick enough to accommodate a small door. Full instructions are included in this article by Ariana Seigal which I found on her Little Things website.
