Create your own DIY fairy garden
What fairy could resist settling onto a cozy bench, next to a tiny house surrounded by tiny flowers? Create magical memories, while making a fairy garden with a child that will thrill them and spur their imaginings of make-believe worlds. Tiny plants can create the effect of a small forest or a mossy lawn, echoing Nature’s grander landscapes. Add a snug house or fairy door leading into a tree stump and you can expect the fairies to soon arrive!
Luscious Lids: Designs With Recycled Glass
Becky Norris, a long time member of Flea Market Gardening, is a great one for conjuring up intricate, beautiful and very unusual projects. For every idea she comes up with, she adds a large dose of her own imagination. For this crystalline window project, she collected glass lids and flat glass pieces for years before she had enough to complete her window scheme. What a woman!
Galvanized tubs containers combined with ‘tipsy pots’ is a genius idea and two of our favorite things at Flea Market Gardening!
