I love that quote. It’s so true. The little everyday things are going to be the the things I miss most when I look back on these happy, messy, mom-of-young-kids days.
We made a rustic sign for our teacup fairy garden. I love how it turned out… the magical grain in the bark, the handmade feeling of the writing.
I think it will attract the fairies to come to our fairy garden, don’t you think?
Who could resist!
It was super simple to make too.
- Collect a flat piece of bark about 4 inches long
- Use small alphabet stamps and black ink to write FAIRIES onto the bark
- Use a hot glue gun to glue an 8 inch twig onto the back of the sign.
- Put your FAIRIES sign into your delightful fairy garden.
- Wait for the fairies to arrive.
I love using simple treasures that we find from nature to make magical fairy garden accessories.
And, I have it on good authority that fairies love the rustic look too. Even better, they LOVE treasures made by little hands.
So, get the little ones in your family to craft magical fairy garden goodies with you.
We made all of the other delightful goodies in our teacup fairy garden too.
