Fairy Garden (in a Drawer)

There's a chill in the air and our outdoor fairy garden is long gone. 
We needed a warm place for fairies to stay when they visit.

This is a little nightstand next to the ladybug's bed.  The top two drawers are "junk drawers."  Filled with all those fun little treasures that really don't have a place.  The bottom drawer has become a small tucked away place for fairy friends.  See the tag on the handle?




Fairy sized key for entry
When you open the drawer this is what you will see.  A petite place for fairies to rest their wings.

The mini houses are $1 at Michaels.  They're painted and topped with glitter mod podge.
The "stepping stones" are sliced wine corks. 

Green felt makes the "grass"

All decorated for Fall with a little paper pennant

A thin stream of "water,"  glittery, of course.       Wouldn't you image fairy water to be full of glitter? :-)

falling leaves and a mini pumpkin sit near a fairy sized bench.  You can find those mini pumpkins HERE

Tink seems to enjoy it :-)

Total cost was under $5.  I only had to buy the houses and felt. It was so much fun making this and surprising the ladybug when she came home from a birthday party.  She can add to it as she likes, and when Christmas comes I'm sure we'll add mini lights and a tree. 
Inspired by THIS fairy village.

What a sweet thing for your daughter to find! That is such a neat idea--a winter spot for fairies. I think my daughter would love something like that too! =)
