Fairy Gardens

June 7, 2010|4:43 pm

Today we had an impromptu Fairy garden party. I read a blog called Pink and Green Mama and fell in love. I’ll link to her later (I am still having trouble with that!) Yesterday she posted about the fairy gardens she had helped her daughters make as teacher gifts. Since my sister in law and nieces were already planning on stopping by, I ran to town and picked up some bowls from Wal-Mart and some little houses from the $1 section of Michaels. A quick phone call to another friend and we had a fun day planned.

First we painted houses

We just used acrylic paint I had on hand.When they were mostly dry I sprayed them with a gloss covercoat to protect from the weather.
