We have been deeply immersed in fairyland over here.
We were inspired by The Magic Onions Fairy Garden Contest and decided to bring our own fairy garden to life!
It has been wonderful. I love how easily I can lose myself in creating miniatures for our fairy friends (yes that is my hand pouring tea for the fairies ; ).
I laugh to myself when I catch myself more immersed than the girls ~ mama's time to play!
Here's one of our wee creations for our fairy garden...
and a quick how to.
Cut your twig for the spout.
Glue it on.
Cut a thin strip of birchbark and glue on for a handle.
(It helps to fold the handle a bit a both ends for the glueing)
Glue on your acorn cap lid.
Brew up some fairy tea!
For your itty bitty tea cups ~ cut out a small circle of birchbark.
Glue on an acorn cap.
Cut and glue on a birch bark strip handle.
After creating our tea set, we realized these fairies would surely appreciate a fairy flower snack.
So we created this little plate out of pine cone scales and an acorn cap.
We filled it with fresh flowers and invited the fairies to tea!
In Fairy Love
