With fall quickly approaching, my summer fairy gardening is coming to a close. What better time to look through what has been created this summer than a cold, rainy day such as today? To make the walk down memory lane even more fun, the folks over at Fairygardens.com are holding their annual fairy garden contest, which is a great way for everyone to come together and share their creations over the past summer. It’s sort of a “harvest” of great fairy garden ideas!
Here is my entry #2, which I made in April of this year. I had a rare span of time where my toddler was staying with her grandparents, which allowed me to create this mosaic garden path (and before baby #2 got here!). The entire path is made from little polymer clay rocks I made by hand, and glued one piece at a time to a piece of wood. The gnome home is also a project I made last year from polymer clay and wood. It was nice to see both projects finally done! (To see how the path was made, click HERE).
I rolled hundreds of little “rocks” from polymer clay to get the color variation I wanted in the swirls.
Acorn caps make great flower pots!
A chair for mom, dad, and baby fairy!
A sundial to tell when it is lunch.
A basket of seeds waiting to be planted.
As most mums know, finishing our own projects takes second seat to raising our kiddos. Every once in a while it’s nice to see something get finished though, and I think that re-ignites our creative “spark” so we can pass it on to our special little ones!
