Making a Fairy Garden From Objects Mostly Found at the Thrift Store:)


Sometimes I am really "afraid" to look at Hometalk posts because I get inspired by some many ideas and I just have to create something right away.:) So when I see a cool project I think "not again, now I have to run to the thrift store or look thru my craft things."hahahaha. Of course this is why I love this site!!!
Last year I purchased this whiskey ( I think) barrel from tractor supply. It was on sale yay! I planted beautiful flowers in their but this year I really had nothing in it.I saw so many cool posts about fairy gardens and I really wanted to make my own.I looked online to see how much fairy garden furniture were and I knew I couldn't afford them. So I went to my favorite thrift store that is only 3 min drive from my house and found all bunch of cool things. I realized that there were lots of sealed bags with many little items in it and most of them looked like they would work perfectly for the little garden. I also went to the dollar tree store to look for some things. So this is what I created :)

the house was actually a candle holder. I glued moss on it ( also found at the thrift store)

I glued 2 tiny terracotta pots and blue glass pieces so it will look like the water is coming out. Glass container and blue glass pieces are from dollar tree.
