Can you sense how giddy I am to share with you these tiny houses illuminated with LED tea lights? They would be pretty on a table setting, or as little surprises in nooks or the corner of a shelf. How about as Christmas ornaments?

Cut around the outline and cut out those window openings. Score along the edges of walls and tabs that fold over. Make the folds, then glue the little house together. The little house will have an open bottom – no floor – so we can put it over a LED tea light candle. I used these, they have a nice bright and warm glow.

Don’t you wish building a house is this easy??

LED tea light candles are great, no worries about anything burning!

I had so much fun taking photos of these paper houses in the garden, it almost feels like some little fairies are going to jump out behind the bushes!
