Design Dazzle's Summer Camp series. I was so flattered that they asked me to join in on the fun! There have been some really great and fun ideas, so I hope you've been following along. But just in case you missed my post over there, I'm repeating it here for you.
If you have little girls you know that fairy gardens have been quite popular these last few years. But, because they're primarily created in container pots or in the yard, they tend to get ruined when it rains. This little fairy house, made with a milk jug, helps protect your fairies and it's easy to grab and bring inside if it looks like rain is coming.
Here is what you'll need to make one:
- Milk jug, rinsed out and labels removed (Goo Gone works very well to remove labels)
- Faux leaves, moss, flowers
- Exacto knife
- Sharpie (your choice of color)
- Fairy dolls, furniture
First thing you do is outline a door and windows with your Sharpie. Then, use the exacto knife to carefully cut them out. Once they're cut out, you can easily dry the inside of the jug with a paper towel. Then, I used a purple Sharpie to embellish the door a little bit with a leaf garland.
I would love to know if you try making one of these. You can share your photos by posting them on my Facebook page.
