Fairy Garden: Part III

Posted on

And of course I needed to add a 2nd tier to the fairy garden…

Filled with dirt and added some succulents
Added some landscape rocks
Some glow in the dark white stones lead the way + a few painted rocks sprinkled in
And even fairies could use a little help up in the form of a rope ladder

Fairy Garden: Part II

Once you get started on creating this small world, it’s really hard to stop. Here you see the progression.

Creating some pathway lanterns
Every garden needs an arch – made using sticks, beads, and wire
The arch added to the garden
The pathway lanterns put in place
A fancy chair for the fairies
Progress so far…

Fairy Garden: The Start

Posted on

I’ve been wanting to build a fairy garden for some time. So with lots of time on my hands in quarantine I started the project. I looked to Pinterest for some inspiration and took it from there.

I purchased a cheap bird bath, drilled holes for drainage, added dirt, and got to work.
Every fairy garden needs a house. Gluing stones to a plastic plant container.

Completed house in the garden and added a fence
Added a plant and some landscape rocks

Lots more to create…more to come

Back to Craftiness…

Since my travel wings have been clipped, I’ve been getting back to my crafty roots. I was inspired by the many painted rock ideas I saw on Pinterest so I thought I would get back into it after letting my project sit for a year. My goal was to complete enough rocks to decorate my front garden. I’m a few rocks shy of completion but I placed them all outside to see how the finished products look. Overall I say not too shabby. I used paint pens for the art which allowed for better control. I finished up by spraying them with Modge Podge acrylic sealer so they will weather the elements. Hope you are inspired to try painting some yourself!
