Little girls love princess and fairy theme parties... This is an easy way to add a little to the themes! Make the doors look like they came from a castle or from little fairies... Enjoy! *** I used red licorice (pull apart kind) for door knobs, hinges and some outlining of doors. *** I used chocolat candy rocks/stones outlining of some of the doors. (I just love the candy rocks... they are like a rustic m&M candy)
