Craft Fairy Garden Accessories

Some simple ideas to make your fairy garden one-of-a-kind.

A Basket of Eggs

With some bakeable clay (Sculpey or Fimo) roll out a thin strand of clay to about 12 inches or so. Begin to coil the clay onto itself to form the basket. Once the basket is complete, make some clay eggs and a handle. Place on a baking sheet. Bake according to package directions.

Create a Bed

Recycle a mint tin into a fairy bed. Add some leaves for bedding and covers. Fresh blooms turn into soft pillows.

Tea for Two

With waterproof glue, glue in place a tea kettle, cups and plates on a miniature table for an indestructible garden tea party.

Craft a Twig Picture Frame

Create a picture frame by wrapping floral wire around four twigs to form a frame. Insert a postage stamp or even a pretty picture from a seed package. Fairies love to recycle things.

A Garden Pool

Create a garden oasis by inverting a shell and filling it with water and floating flowers.
