You may have already seen this on facebook and instagram because this proud mama posted it everywhere. My husband who tends to be really creative made a fairy garden last week with the boys to enter in the Murray Woman's Club Floral and Iris Show.
The boys gathered everything for this project from the yard and the arboretum which is basically an extension of the back yard.
So much detail! They meticulously glued sticks together to build the house and furniture using a hot glue gun.
I love this little fishing pole. My husband made a little clay fish to dangle on the line.
They even made a little clothes line and tiny iridescent clothes to hang on the line. This stone was borrowed from our flower beds.
The boys made this tiny pecan shell vase and arranged small flowers in it. Our oldest made this little table and stool from sticks and an acorn.
My husband chipped away bits of stone from the large stone to make these little stepping stones.
I think this little tree is adorable. It is made from four pieces of Juniper glued together.
The boys were so excited to win 1st place in the fairy garden competition!
I made a quick video of the fairy garden and posted to youtube.
The boys did an amazing job and had fun doing it! I am so proud of them and my awesome husband.
