A pretty and whimsical horseshoe fairy door made with a used, “lucky” bar shoe. If you are concerned your luck may run out this is the Fairy Door for you! We can create these from our own bar shoes, or from your own if you’d like.
For as long as I can remember I (Faye) have loved fairies, over the years I’ve collected various fairy ornaments and sought out magical fairy dells where ever I’ve wandered. The evolution of horseshoe into fairy door there for seemed a very natural progression!
The superstition involving horseshoes and they way up they are placed is a rich and varied one, we at HH HQ embrace all aspects of horseshoe folklore, but we know that not everyone can cope with a standard horseshoe pointing downward and so we created a Fairy Door from a Bar Shoe!
Lovingly hand crafted from start to finish these doors incorporate reclaimed wood, shoeing nails and of course a horseshoe. Each door has a little metal loop on it’s back to enable you to secure it against a wall if you chose. They are all treated in a clear sealant to protect from rust. However, the weather in the UK is frequently damp and wet and if you do not want your door to tarnish we recommend keeping it indoors.
From your own shoes
We are more than happy to use your own bar shoes to create a Fairy door. Whether they are Egg, Heart or Straight Bar shoes we will be able to create one for you. It’s appearance may vary slightly according to the space we have to place the ‘hinges’. Please measure the width of the shoe you wish to use at it’s widest point and chose the corresponding size door.
