When spring hits, it’s really hard to stay focused on the same routine you have been keeping through the winter. The warm air hits and you get a desire to go outside—a desire to not be cooped up. When this happens, my family and I like to set time aside to be creative or take a little outing which involves the outdoors.
Spring also brings celebration. Not just celebration of life but celebration of mothers! My children have always loved to create things for me rather than buy something and if you’re a mother, you know exactly how much I cherish those things.
Outside of Mother’s Day and Easter, spring is gardening season. It’s when everybody starts tending to their lawns and reviving them from the harsh winter months. You have to drag the mower out for that long grass that’s started to grow. The rake will come out too in order to get rid of any extra leaves left on the ground.
In other words, spring has a little bit of everything. However, it had a lot of opportunity to come together as a family and create memories. This fairy garden is a ton of fun to make as a family or even just by yourself if you’re wanting to spice up your garden.
Most of the items we went and searched for in our yard. If you don’t have the same types of flowers growing in your yard as we did, that’s not a problem. Go out and search in your own yard for things to replace the items with.
The best part about this fairy garden is the fact that it’s so customizable. It’s also super easy to get lost in a thousand ideas for mini decorations to add. It was hard for us to stop adding but we were running out of room. Here is how we made our little fairy garden!
6 mini flower pots
6-inch flower pot
3 colors of spray paint
2 kinds of flowers
Some handfuls of a grassy plant
