Fairy Garden Fun!

Hi everyone!

Today I'm writing a  post about a little project I've been working on during this spring weather, a fairy garden! I've always loved fairy gardens. I think they're so cute and can add vibrance and uniqueness to any yard.

First off, all I did was buy a simple fairy garden starter kit at Walmart.

Then I ordered a few more things to add some more character to my fairy garden...including a fence..

a couple of hedgehogs, a mushroom,

and a dragon.

I found all of those on Ebay/Amazon.

I also bought a galvanized metal bucket, which I also purchased at Walmart. 

I'll use the bucket to 'plant' my fairy garden. I drilled a few holes in the bottom to help with drainage. 

Next comes putting together your fairy garden. Obviously there are no rules and it's totally up to you and how you want to decorate yours. Here are some pictures of mine to get your creative engine going...

And that's all! It didn't take long to put together at all. You can get the supplies and put it together in less than a day, unless you decide to order some more decorations. Enjoy! :)

Two Uses Tuesday | A Sarah Celebrates link up party showcasing your crafts, diys, recipes and upcycles
I am a bit late getting the party posted--chick #1, Staci and her husband Jon just became parents of their first baby!  Welcome to our family, Parker Scott!

Tip of the Week:  this is week four of our blog clean up.  How are you feeling about it?  I know I love clean spaces😀

I want you to think about what makes you click thru ago post? Catchy title, sure.  Amazing imagery, absolutely.  That's what I want you to look at this week, your images.  Best place to start-your own most viewed blog posts.  Use Google Analytics to figure out which when those are and then get to work.  Make sure you have a good pinnable one, that your url is on them and are using the best quality image possible.  Schedule time into your blog maintenance routine and go back to the beginning of posting time and if away at every last one.
