Creative Fairy Garden Ideas and Tips

Hello friends and Happy Friday! Welcome to another week of Must Have Craft Tips! Kara from Mine for the Making here and this week I’m sharing Creative Fairy Garden Ideas and Tips with you!

My daughter and I have a slight obsession with fairy gardens and have created a couple of our own.  They are so fun and magical and they can be as simple or extravagant as you want! 

Tip 1: Pick a place to create your fairy garden! The options are truly endless. Let’s take a look at some of my favorites…

Fairy Garden Table

Tea Cup Fairy Garden

Fairy Door Planter

Fairy Garden Basket

Beachy Fairy Garden

Flower Pot Fairy Garden

Basin Fairy Garden

Wagon Fairy Garden

Wheelbarrow Fairy Garden

Tip 2: Purchase or make fairy garden accessories. You can find fairy garden accessories at your local craft stores, Easy, and Amazon. There’s also lots you can create and make on your own.

Tip 3: Choose, purchase, and plant the plants for your fairy garden. I love using small flowers, succulents, and mosses for my gardens, but really there’s a plethora of options. I’ve seen adorable fairy gardens in veggie gardens and right up against a giant, shady tree.

That’s it! You’re ready to create your very own magical fairy garden. And I hope you do! It’s such a fun spring activity. 

Join us again next Friday for another Must Have Craft Tips and More!

Personalized Dog Dishes

Hello there makers! Are you a dog mom? If so, I have the perfect project for you… or for your pup, rather.  Check out these Personalized Dog Dishes. I picked up a couple of plain, aluminum dog dishes from the store and decided it was extremely necessary to personalize them for our pup.

Super cute, right?! I created the decal in the Silhouette design studio, cut it out on Expressions Vinyl using my Silhouette Cameo, weeded the designs and applied them onto the aluminum dog dishes using transfer tape/paper.

Be sure to really smooth over the vinyl to get out all bubbles before removing the transfer tape. 

They were that easy! I even saved the Silhouette designs for you so that you can personalize your dog’s dishes too. Pin this post and email me that you did… I will email you the design so you can make your own!

I love how they turned out and that it only took me about 15 minutes to complete. My Bruzer boy loves his new dishes too! 

Wonder what I should make next for this pup of mine… Do you have any favorite DIY dog projects?
