Here we offer a simple way to assemble one of our fairy door kits.
All you will need are the following:
Glue ( normal wood glue or PVA as it’s known).
Paint; we used a paint pen in this demo but acrylic paint is great as well.
Pegs; yes the things you use on the clothes line.
These wooden parts are as we supply them.
The door consists of four parts: a back panel, door frame, window frame and door handle.
Painting is best done before assembling the door..
After painting your door, apply a very thin layer of glue to the back of the door frame, window surround and handle. The easiest way to glue up the handle is to put a drop of glue on a scrap of paper and push the handle into it. Once removed you will find it ready with the right amount of glue to add to the door.
After glueing all the parts in place, use a few clothes pegs to apply pressure and hold the glued door together. The window and handle will simply stay put where you leave them. The glue has a lot of ‘grab’
One final tip for this blog;to preserve your glue don’t bother with the cap that is sometimes supplied, simply use a bit of clear tape to seal the end up.
