Suncatchers in the Fairy Garden - The Magic Onions

Suncatchers in the Fairy Garden

Kitty made pretty suncatchers for her fairy garden using wire and chandelier crystals.

We have been collecting chandelier crystals at garage sales for just this kind of magical project.

She used pliers to bend floral wire into a hanging post for the crystals, polished them until they sparkled brightly and hung her new fairy suncatchers in her pretty garden to make rainbows in the sun.

  1. That is SOO cool! Love the little wires to hang them. That settles it. Next year I am making a fairy garden for myself, whether I am acquainted with any ‘littles or not.

  2. So magical! What lovely sun catchers! I thought pliers would be very hard for children to manuevre but the results here look so wonderful!

    • Thanks Jzin… Kitty is a pro with pliers now… lots of practice :-)

  4. Hello,

    I have a question about fairy gardens. We are making one and loving it. We made a house too for it and want to add other details in it. But how do you then water it? Do you remove everything and water the garden or just water over it? I am afraid that the house we made ( out of wood) might rot. Any advise?

    Thank you

    • Hi Sonia,
      So glad you are loving making a fairy garden :-)
      Some of the little furniture we make doesn’t do so well with being watered either. I do sometimes remove the most precious pieces before watering. But, most of the time, we figure that we’ll make new pieces when the old deteriorate. Kitty loves having an excuse to make something new for her fairy garden :-)

  5. These suncatchers are beautiful. I love these kind of crystal shapes because they send magical prisms and little rainbows onto your garden in the right sunlight.
