I have been collecting pictures of fairy gardens via Pinterest for awhile. I thought it would be a fun summer activity for the kids and get them involved in picking out some flowers and planting them around their own gardens. This past weekend, I got a start on Abby's fairy garden, Alex is going to have a dragon's lair tucked in a corner planter.
To get started our garden fairies needed a house. I had been on the hunt for a good fairy house at all of the local garden shops but found nothing. Searching the internet, I found this one, but it was a little too pricy and I loved the look of these, but seemed a bit too time consuming to create. So I started to search around the house and came up some scraps left from the great deck construction of 2009.
The houses are made from the post sleeves and caps. I drew a door on with a sharpie and the dear hubby cut them out.
I added a few rock trails and hope to add some flowers and more landscaping this weekend. I just love the start to our fairy garden.
