It's hard to believe that tomorrow is the first official day of spring and right now it's snowing here in New England! After a week of sunny bright skies, I think it's safe to say we have spring fever!
Lately I've had an obsession with fairy gardens and I've been pinning them like crazy on Pinterest. I can't wait to create one of my own in our garden this year!
Having A Little Lair® makes it easy for fairies to visit inside our home, but wouldn't it be fun to create a garden space for them too? Since we won't be able to plant outdoors for the next few weeks, I thought it would be fun to create an indoor fairy garden.
Here's what we used to get started:
Craft stores have tons of affordable dollhouse accessories to choose from for decoration. Here's a few of our favorites: Park Bench, Fencing, Garden Tools, Birdhouse, little terra cotta pots.
I already had this great old table/planting container in my attic, but really you could use just about anything. Just make sure it's easy to water and you have a nice bright location to place it. Covering the planting soil with sheet moss is key to creating that little garden feel.
I love that this project can be a "work in progress" and we can add to it or make changes whenever we want to. I already have some fun ideas that I'll share with you later this week.
We plan on leaving a little note outside our fairy door tonight in hopes that a passing fairy may stop by for a visit. Who knows, we may even find a sprinkling of fairy dust tomorrow morning.
