Shh!! Fairies Sleeping - Our Fairy Garden Reveal

Check out the competition at the Magic Onions
Finally, the Kite's fairy garden reveal.

The recap:
I posted about the fairies here
I posted about the gnomes here. 
I posted about the furniture here.

For our garden, we used a cedar half barrel (Home Depot).  The barrel cost approximately $20.

The fairy houses were unfinished bird houses from Dollarama.  Miss Lily picked out the shapes she liked.  We took them home and I primed them.  She painted them. I sealed them for outdoors.

I added some moss to the conical one and an old bamboo placemat to embellish the roof of the smaller one.

The plantings are irish moss and alyssum.  The paths are made from pea gravel.

She is one happy little girl.  She has been waiting for this moment for a long time.

   And just remember

This has been a fun project.  I am certain we will continue to add to it throughout the summer.  

I have been inspired by so many blogs, especially this post by Junk Mammas to replicate the house; the wise wisdom of Magic Onions, this post on Everything Nice, this post on Sixty-Fifth Avenue, and well just about everything over at Weefolks.

Thanks for sharing the magic and have a lovely day,
