DIY Fairy Gardens Part One
When I was a child I was fascinated with fairies and angels. Now that I have children, I am tapping into my childlike side. I wanted to recreate the magical aspects of being a child, so I created fairy gardens all over our property. I even made one for my mom.
My sister and brother-in-law gave me a glass bubble terrarium for Christmas. I decided to turn it into a suspended fairy garden and hang it in the kitchen. I smile every time I see it.
Baby Fairy ($1.00 at local antique store, but you can find them on Amazon)
Baby Bunny ($1.00 at a local antique store, but you can find them at a craft store)
Mini Mushrooms ($2.99, Michael’s)
Sedum Blue Balls Dwarf Stonecrop ($3.99, Garden Nursery)
To create the suspended fairy garden, start by trimming the roots of the Sedum Blue Balls Dwarf Stonecrop. Cut off 1/4 of the roots and soil and then place the plant in the glass bubble. Spray the plant with water. You will need to water the garden every few days.
Group the miniature mushrooms around the outskirt of the garden.
Add the baby fairy in the center and the baby bunny in the background.
