You Can Make a Fairy Garden Cottage Out of a Stump!

An old stump and some ingenuity is all you need to turn an old stump into a charming focal point for your Fairy Garden!
If you have a probably can find a good stump for the project.
Use a log that has been chopped so that it looks like a roof!
Get out your glue gun and start gluing on pieces of bark for "shingles".
Steal a few windows from the kids LEGO stash....
Then go to town with moss, plants and rocks....

    Do you leave it out year round? I live in MN and am curious if it would hold up to the winter elements.

    I love your fairy garden, but just wondering for your safety, is that poison ivy growing.....IT SURE LOOKS like it! Heart shaped leaves?????????

    How about asking your neighbor to keep their cats and dogs out of your yard. Otherwise I would suggest getting a plastic carpet runner with those poking things on the underside and turning it bottom up and using it as a base. And poke some holes in it so the water go through. Just don’t put too much dirt on it. I have an cat that likes to get it in to certain kind of plants so I set the plants on the plastic runners with the bottom facing up. It is totally unsafe to let your cats and dogs out without an enclosure.
