I have only two criteria for this project:
1) It had to have all the things basic to fairy gardens (house, plants, outdoor furniture & a fairy)
2) It had to fit in a small container (nothing bigger than a frisbee)
I considered many different containers but was having a hard time choosing between
this or this
I have both and they are around the same depth but I think the steamer is a little larger in size, on the other hand, the container has a solid bottom and the steamer doesn't so I would lose some depth using the steamer. Still haven't fully decided!
Once the base is decided on you build them up just like you would with a terrarium
Once that is done you add your fairy decorations and you are done. I know that buying fairy garden stuff can get expensive so I've collected a whole bunch of DIY pins. Three actually: Fairy Doll, Fairy House & Fairy Furniture. There is also a fourth board that will spark ideas for design.
I guess I should give you a heads up, I don't know how long these boards will be available since they were created via a Google + account and they have closed that down. I am working at getting as much of the information moved to a new site but there are 240 boards to move with an average of 20 pins per board to move so it may take a while. The new location is cmarois6143.
