Make some cheery little fairy tale inhabitants for your fairy garden, or yard.
Welcome the fairies to your garden with a cute and crafty home made with recycled materials! Leave the roof open so kids can play with it as a real house, leave treats for the fairies that come to visit, or even store treasures this summer!
Fairies are kind of a big deal. I heard a story once about Fairy Specialists needing to be contacted while a road was being built in Iceland because it would have interfered with a fairy home. No joke. Plus they make the perfect fantasy world to keep your kiddos occupied for hours! So I’ve put together a couple of fun, fairy-themed crafts. Enjoy!
How cute is this little gnome home? I know, I know, this isn’t a fairy craft, but gnomes need a place to rest their heads too. Plus, this would look adorable in your garden and you know it.

My mom and stepdad moved to a beautiful new house almost a year ago. She’d had this potted tree that had made moves with her for almost twenty years, to different houses in the same state, to a house with a newly formed family, and even a house across the country. It had been in my home growing up, no matter where we lived, since I could remember. Then, she moved to this gorgeous house surrounded by nature in the middle of the woods…and it killed her plant. The dumb “softened” water at her house killed her plant. It made me so sad to hear that our beloved family tree had died.
Growing up, my sister loved bugs. I once got swarmed by angry hornets and all she cared about was that one had gotten trapped in the window and she could dissect it. So, if you have some kiddos that are anything like my sister, I have some crafts for you today that don’t involve anything that will buzz, bite, or sting!
Few things are cuter than baby feet, and baby feet covered in paint and dressed up as a butterfly in one of them. The best thing about making this craft in the summer time? You can send the kids out to play in the sprinkler to wash up!
