Diy Fairy Garden

As a child I had a very vivid and active imagination. I am not ashamed to admit that I believed in fairies, mermaids and unicorns. And wouldn't you know it that those are 3 of my daughter's favorite things. Her fairy obsession started when we watched the movie Peter Pan. Then one day when we were in the nursery my watch kept catching a glint of light and making patterns all over the wall. When she asked what it was I told her it was Tinkerbell. That's all it took to start her fairy obsession.

 I had had this idea for awhile to make a little fairy garden for our backyard. I wanted it to be a fun mom and me project that we could do while Ethan was napping. I had seen a few blog posts on fairy gardens and on Pinterest but wanted to keep things simple since Gianna is only 2.5. So we headed to hobby lobby for our supplies and here is what we came up with

Every fairy garden needs a fairy door

Putting this together was so much fun. Everything was form hobby lobby, all on sale and Gianan picked it all out. Every morning she wakes up and wants to say hi to her fairies and when we are outside in the backyard she plays with it constantly. It is so fun watching her imagination grow

And to go along with our fairy garden we have a handful of fairy books that we read constantly
They are
Fairy Birds
Pinkalicious and the Fairy House
How to Find Flower Fairies
Fairy Houses
The Wee Hours

As Gianna gets older I am looking forward to doing more of the actual DIY fairy garden crafts that we have found on Pinterest. But for now this is is perfect for her to play with!
