On Monday I showed you the fairy house I’ve made with my girls. It is part of our fairy garden in a pallet .
I’ve wanted to do a fairy garden for the longest time, but just never did! We got a Fairy Spotters Guide and the girls know all about fairies, lol! 😉
I love going on Pinterest and gushing over all those amazing fairy garden ideas! I’ve just never started it and always put it off, also, because I never really knew where exactly to set it all up. We do have a pretty nice sized garden, it’s not that. It’s the two lovely bunnies hopping around in it, that kinda kept me from making a fairy garden. See, they nibble on everything and dig and just can’t keep their little noses and paws away from anything we plant. But now I’ve had this idea!
Remember my pallets? Those 4 pallets I got from my friend a while back? I repurposed one so far by doing this. There are still three to go! And you might know by now how I don’t like using power tools and such. So the other day I knew what to do with one of the 3 remaining pallets! A fairy garden in a pallet! It looks not only pretty but is also unreachable for the long eared cuties!
Fairy garden in a pallet
First, I painted the pallet white. I put it against a wall by our entrance door. At the Spanish dollar store I got 4 long baking tins that fit into the pallet. I didn’t put any on the bottom part, just some rocks to fill it.
Then, we made a trip to the beach, collecting some rocks, shells and also to bring home some sand. We weren’t too lucky finding to many rocks that day, but sure brought some sand and shells. I also bought little rocks and glass pebbles at the store that would be the fairy lake.
Next, we drove to our nearest garden store and got cute little succulents and some herbs, perfect for this! We mixed some soil with the sand and planted them inside the tins.
We prepared lots of little extras ourselves:
~ a fairy hammock using thin golden wire, a lace ribbon and two toothpicks.
~ fairy bunting using toothpicks, washi tape and thin golden wire.
~ a fairy teepee using toothpicks, thin golden wire and a piece of fabric. Out of felt we cut out a little circle to put underneath the teepee, you can see it in the pictures below.
We also made a little sign out of popsicle sticks not shown above but below in the pictures you can see it.
And this friends is our little fairy garden in a pallet! Hope you like it! It was tons of fun to make this with my daughters and they are still having so much fun with it, arranging it in a different way each day all over again!
