I have wanted to make a fairy garden for a few years, especially after seeing all the wonderful creations on The Magic Onions blog. This is the first time Sarah has expressed interest in helping so I thought it was perfect time. I pretty much let her run the show, but I gently steered her towards the flowers that would work best. I wanted to make the fairy house with more natural elements but Sarah was emphatic that it must be purple and sparkly. Again, I shut my mouth and let her choose. Well, of course it turned out adorable but I’m already realizing it’s too small and we must add on. I have another metal tub like the pink one so in the next couple of weeks we’ll build a bridge across to the addition. But for now, I’ll sit back and enjoy this project and the special little moments Sarah and I shared while making it.

  1. My kiddos love making fairy gardens, although ours don’t look nearly as pretty as yours! The kids usually dig for rocks sticks and leaves under a big tree in our yard…and there is a lot of mud involved 🙂 But, they are having fun!
