Fairy Gardens for Mom

Happy May Everyone.  I barely made it, but, I did.  Tomorrow is June 1st already.  I just don't understand where time goes.  The older I get, the faster it goes.  I have really missed my blog and haven't been on since October.  What is up with that?  I always catch myself thinking, I need to get a picture of this and most importantly, what will I say on that first post back.  Well, I have decided to just start - rip that band aid off and have some fun.  So, here we go:


Doing for childcare for 23 years, it is hard coming up with things the kids can make.  I think they really hit it out of the park this year.  They started by putting hand prints on the outside of the pot.  We were shooting for a butterfly, but, we did get a few spiders in there - lol.








Then we made little fairies. a birdbath, and I love their little stone paths.




The fairies were made with a clothes pin, doll head (or dowel cap), yarn, a small wooden star, a toothpick and a piece of yellow felt.





I love the faces of the fairies.  This one in suppose to be Harlequin from Batman.




Just wrap the top of the clothes pin with yarn for a top.  Then a pom pom for the skirt.




The birdbath was made from a miniature pot inverted and the saucer on top.  I ran out of the pots and used a cork for the picture.  They painted them and added jewels to decorate the saucer.  They were so pretty.  After everything was painted, I sprayed clear spray paint over everything to seal it - I didn't want anything to bleed.

















I loved them ALL.  I just wish one was made for me!  I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day.

Happy Crafting.

  1. Rhonda, those little fairy gardens are just adorable! How sweet of your to make them with your daycare kids to give to their mamas. I'll bet they were given with great pride and huge smiles! *Stopping by via Flamingo Toes linky party!
