SOMETHING magical has appeared under the trees on a Cleveland pathway.

Creative mum of two Marlise Ross has sprinkled some fairy dust along a popular school route near the showgrounds.

Marlise walks her dog, Lucky every day, always taking in her surroundings and looking for the beauty in nature.

"I came across a beautiful tree that looked like it could be a fairy home with a space for a door. I quickly came back the next day and measured the hole for a door and made a mould and started work on the little green door," she said.

The fairy door was installed earlier this month complete with door bell, porch light and a pathway littered with red and white toadstools.

The fairy tree doors can be spotted on the stretch of trees between the entrance to Redlands United Football Club and Long Street, Cleveland.

"A few days later I noticed people had been adding to the fairy garden with painted rocks, flowers and seeds. It inspired me to make another door a little further down the pathway," Marlise said.

"Everything is so heavy at the moment, I thought the fairy doors would give young and old something to smile about," she said.

The fairy doors have proved so popular Marlise set up a Facebook page Fairytree4163 where people can find a map to the pathway, comment and post photos.

She hoped to expand her magical project and make more doors and create a fairy hunt for children.
