Now that you have finished building your fairy house let’s do a fairy house welcoming ritual to invite the fairies to their new home. Sprinkle a little ground ginger in front of the entrance. This let’s the fairies know that they are welcomed [Fairies like ginger]. If you have created your fairy house as a permanent structure in your yard or garden then liven the area up by planting flowers around it that will bloom in spring and summer this serve a double purpose it welcomes the fairies and offer them privacy as well.
So let’s let the fairies know that you have built them a house and you want them to come inspect it:[ Do not put names or labels on the house] Use this chant to send out a welcoming call.
The house is built, the door open wide
O, fairies come and look inside.
Now clap your hands three times.
Magick of the sun and moon will call a dweller very soon
Clap your hands three times
True friendship I send to Faery folk, May this house be full of the small folk
Clap your hands three times,
Now walk away giving the fairy folk privacy to look over the house and choose which type of fairy will live there.
