There seems to be a quite a bit of activity around decorating trees with Fairy or Gnome doors lately.

Here is my take on working with a Tree in the yard.

First, Find a tree with a scar in the bark.
2nd, Take a photo and measure the tallest and widest points.
3rd. Upload it in Aspire and create and outline of the scar to scale.
4th design a castle/ door to fit in the scar.
5th carve and install said carved castle.

Happy wife ,and granddaughters.

That is just fabulous, Scott! Won't work in our yard, though. The biggest tree is only about 8" diameter. I guess we could do a mouse door... :wink:

I don't know why but looking at this I have a picture of a firewood holder with something like this on the end so that some of the wood would overhang the carving and look like a fairy house.

I'm with @honesttjohn "Long winter, huh?"
