Fairy Gardens

Talk about small-scale gardening! Making a fairy garden together with your child(ren) can be a lot of fun. It can happen in a small space, including inside in a planter, so you can make one anywhere really.
Below are some photos from The Magic Onions blog, from team member Donni at Fairyfolk.

A little moment of tranquility...



Here is an outside planter box/barrel of strawberries.


Mmm... I think fairies like strawberries a lot!!

Find a little spot to create your fairy garden.


Collect some supplies. You can buy cute little things to put in it or make them. Built with popsicle sticks and glue, wool scraps, marbles, moss, whatever you have on hand.



And start building!



Rocks and a bowl can be turned into a cute little fairy scene.


When you're done, you can make a sign. Then sit back and wait to see if you might catch a glimpse of a fairy in your new little garden!

Such a fantastic idea. I can't wait to do this with my daughter when she is a bit older. Perhaps I will do it on my own!

Love it. We really must do something like this. Our past efforts in this area were not so creative, lol!

I have been wanting to do something like this in my own garden (which currently is overrun with weeds).
