Fairy Garden help please

Postby Catch-up » Fri Aug 03, 2012 1:35 pm

So the girls (with a little help) have put together an adorable fairy garden. :D I would love some suggestions to make it look like a fairy has moved in. There's a small house, some furniture and gardening tools. The only thing I can think to do is sprinkle some "pixie dust" around. I know this creative bunch will have better ideas! :D I'll get a picture today and post it here. Thanks! :D

How about some outdoor christmas lights? Maybe some christmas tree decorations on a suitable outdoor tree or bush.

Cover the house with foil - or coloured sweet wrappers.

That's me out of ideas already. :lol:

A little moving van parked out front? :D

a half finished garden, a little dog on the porch, and a rusted out car on the lawn? :lol:

or on a serious note. a little note pinned to the door saying thanks for the tools?

I saw this picture on a website and thought it might be a nice touch. You could probably make it from used ice lolly sticks without too much effort or expense. :D

Dunno, but any small, thin wooden stick would do the job. :D
