Now we have also been shopping for the Birthday party. We needed to scale this down by ALOT! So our first stop was Dollar tree. They had these cute tins that measure 9" long by 5" wide. Tori wanted to use large colorful bowls that they had but we talked her out of that. We decided we could make a fence with short Popsicle sticks, make a cloths line from plastic cocktail sticks, and use some stones for a path.
We also picked up things to make a gazing ball, found some ladybugs, and can use push pins for stool legs. Some of that stuff we got at Hobby Lobby. Her grandpa is going to help out by making some small Tree limb houses. YAY!! Oh and we also bought some butterflies. We still need to find the right bead for the gazing ball. Total seen here so far is about $40 and this will make 11 Faerie gardens. Yes we still need plants but very few will go along way with these tiny gardens compared to the larger one she and I are making.
Let me tell you this IS ADDICTING!!!! I now want to have an even larger Faerie garden in my yard. I have 2 very suitable places. (well actually I have a bunch of places) My first spot is down in the woods where it could be nestled in the Blue Bells and Sweet Woodruff. Doesn't that just "scream" magical? The other is under the Lilac's in the corner of the yard where it could be easily seen from the living room window. I figured I could save $37 per house by having my husband convert some of his birdhouses he makes into Faerie houses. He uses all scrap/old wood for them so it's free! Ughhh....I have to stop!! ONE project at a time! LOL. Ok back to original Faerie garden. We will be working on accessories today so I may even post again later. Keep checking back for updates. Should I guarantee "Cuteness"? heeheehee.
