Do you remember your childhood imagination?
I do. I remember back in the day before all these innovations, my cousin and I used to make household items for our Barbies out of what we had.
We have an unused fountain in our backyard. I had intended for it to be my herb garden, but there isn’t enough sunshine in that corner. So I told Princess Cupcake and Princess Jellybean that they could use the three tiers for their faerie garden.
This duo wanted me to post my photos today:
1. Faerie House
I found this pin on Pinterest. Our popsicle sticks were too big so we used Woodsies that were probably purchased at Michael’s long ago for cupcake toppers. Building it yesterday reminded me how hot the glue gun gets.
This fairy house still needs a paint job.
2. Faerie Swing
I helped Princess Jellybean stabilize this swing this afternoon with the hot glue gun. The frame is from sticks they found in our backyard. The swing seat is a piece of mulch. And I believe the yarn is leftover Debbie Bliss Cashmerino.
3. Faerie Well
This was the funnest project of the garden so far! The girls stocked up on rocks at their Bella’s house earlier this afternoon when we were up in the city. Jellybean cut off a piece of the tube from a paper towel roll. I hot glue-gunned the rocks into place with the little one directing me the order of their placement. The rest of the materials are thin sticks and leaves. I squeezed dots of glue on the sticks to keep the leaves from going down any further and from coming off the top. Cupcake gave me two beads for decoration on top.
4. Arbor Entrance
Princes Cupcake constructed this herself and put those flower buds there along with the rocks. She’s waiting for the Rocky Road ice cream to be consumed so she can use the tub as a faerie ice cream house for that spot.
5. Bird Baths
Yesterday, the dames were pinning away on Pinterest on my Fairy Garden board. The two found this pin for the birdbath idea. These bird baths were obviously made from plastic, Easter eggs. You see them by Woodsies fencing that needs to be painted.
Well, that’s all folks for now. When more is created, I’ll post again. Hope you enjoyed the princesses’ creativity. And I hope you had a personal trip back down memory lane when imagination ruled the days of your childhood.
