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…

Posted on

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!
