Making Miniature Tools for Fairy Gardens


This summer our grand-daughter enjoyed her fairy garden and she inspired my wife to create some mini tools. My wife wanted them to look organic and viney, as if they were made by little ones who tend the forests. She loves being a grandma who can become a kid again through imagination.

What grandchild wouldn't love these for his or her mini garden?  In fact, what grandma wouldn't want these for an indoor terrarium?

Shovel, rake and pitchfork. Wouldn't these be great for a fairy, bonsai or mini-zen garden?

When the grandkids are over, they're always collecting something and giving me their gifts.  This day, Jackson was into acorns another idea was birthed. What if the cap was a birdbath?
