How to make an Arbor for your Fairy Garden. - The Magic Onions

How to make an Arbor for your Fairy Garden.

Today we made an arbor for K’s Fairy Garden.
This is what we used to make it… strong but bendable wire, thin very bendable wire, my pliers and some paper roses for decoration.
I cut two pieces of the strong wire using my pliers, about 15 inches each. I bended the two pieces of wire into U shapes. Be sure to file the ends of all the wire so that it can’t poke any precious little hands.

I used the thin wire to connect the two U’s. I wisted it many times around the first U and then the other. The gap between the two U’s was about 1 inch.
I continued this process up the wire…

Until the arbor frame was complete.

Then K added the roses to make it look beautiful and rushed out to her Fairy Garden to put it into its place.

She announced a little later that, in the morning, there is going to be a royal wedding and a fairy and a prince are going to get married under the ‘magnificent’ arbor… I can’t wait to see!
