3-D Secret Fairy Garden
I purchased a shelf from Goodwill. It has diamond patterned
door covers. I glued a 3-D scene onto the two shelves inside
then bought a tiny lock and key for the doors.
I glued the Fairy home to the bottom shelf in the back, put some greenery
in front on both sides using the white strips behind each to make 3-D;
added some smaller flowers in front of those and glued
a rabbit just to the side in front.
On the top shelf I glued greenery in back, glued flowers in front
of that making each 3-D. On the front of the shelf I glued a vine.
Inside I hid a few tiny fairies tucked in between the greenery and flowers.
Some of the flowers, the rabbit and its home I did not have permission
to post for online use, so I an posting these that you may use. You can look
online and find others, if you wish.
My grand-daughters love this garden, but, I must confess
I surely did enjoy putting it all together.
I hope you and your young ones have a great time making
your own Secret Fairy Garden.
You will notice there are a couple of boy elves included so this will work
for guys as well as gals.
1. Right click and save all pages to your computer.
There are five pages – Flowers for Secret Fairy Garden “A”,
Flowers for Secret Fairy Garden “B”, Plants for Secret Fairy Garden,
“Fairy Home” and Fairies for Secret Fairy Garden.
I will post them one page at a time beginning today and then every other day.
2. Use crayons, magic markers or paints to color.
Note: Placing clear contact paper on front after coloring is a good idea.
3. Cut out all pieces, including the long strips.
4. Fold and glue the strips. After they are dry you can use to make any
of your objects 3-D. Glue dried folded strip to back of flower, etc.
then glue where you wish in your garden.
5. Use either heavy cardstock, a shoebox, a windowbox, a shelf
or reinforced poster board – anything you have on hand or would
care to use for your secret garden. You could use a broken flower
pot or teapot … just use your imagination.
If you make the Secret Fairy Garden, I would love to see your results.
Perhaps you could post a picture here for all of us to view.
