Fairies even vary in tribes and race, shapes and sizes. Even though they’re small, they can change the size, from a human-size or even larger.
The Fairy World
Apart from the human world, there is a separate realm called the Fairy World. Much like the TV show, Fairly Odd Parents, it is another extraterrestrial kingdom where fairies gather and have their own community, apart from humans.
Fairies usually like to live in places with little human activity, like gardens, forests, or parks. Some of them, like the dryad fairies, live underground with trees, hills, or rocks. They have even taken the forms of sea spirits, like mermaids, and live under the sea.
There are many other fascinating types of fairies, like the Cloud fairies, who live in the sky, Flower fairies, who live among the flowers, and Butterfly fairies who appear as butterflies. They live everywhere! They could be anywhere in your house, your garden - anywhere.
Kinds of Fairy Homes
You can find fairy homes all over the world in every nook and cranny. Hidden fairy homes blend perfectly with the forest scenery, and you’ll have to look really hard to see it.
Logs and Stumps
Forest fairies are more likely to live in logs and stumps where no one looks or ever notices them, that’s why they’re the perfect hiding place for fairies. It’s a great quiet home that will last a long time, completely unbothered by animals and humans. They enjoy the woods and places with dense flora.
Another ideal home for forest fairies are tree houses. They look just like any other tree with shrubbery, bushes, and twigs all around. They’re very difficult to tell apart from the tree, so you might be surprised if a fairy comes out and peeks at you!
Fairies live in mushrooms, too! Since they like living in hidden areas and don’t like populous places, mushroom houses are not uncommon. Fairies like to live where they will blend in and be avoided by humans, and mushrooms are often good places to hide!
Fairies love the countryside hills, or more often called mounds. The richer in greenery, the more fairies love it. The UK is rich in greenery, that’s why it’s so populated by fairies.
Since humans and animals don’t dare to see what’s behind a waterfall, fairies also make homes behind them, too. It’s a quiet, peaceful place for fairies who practice magic.
Stones and Pebbles
Under the nooks and crannies are the stone homes. Fairies love to live underground with plenty of pebbles and rocks, varying in different colors, sizes, and textures. Forest rocks are perfect for camouflage since no one would think fairies live under them. It’s a great weatherproof home, too!
Let’s not forget the flowers! Flower fairies like to live among blossoms and flowers. It is believed that these fairies help maintain the overall health of the garden.
