Fairy doors are simply magical. They bring a sense of wonder to both kids and adults and let imaginations run wild with possibilities. Whether you spot a fairy door nestled in the woods or peeking out from a bookcase, you can't help but smile when you see one. These tiny doors lead to an invisible world but of course, when we open the doors there's nothing there as we're mere humans! Tinkerbell, the tooth fairy, pixies and gnomes, any number of these creatures could be living behind your fairy door, it's up to you to decide.
