How to Make a Fairy Garden
Ivonne Portas, from Miami Florida, submitted these pictures of some fun fairy house her and her daughter, Natalie, made using treasure they found from nature. They made an assortment of houses and creations to construct an entire fairy village. Some of the items they used to make their fairy houses are:
- Palm seeds
- Old coconuts
- Fallen skin from coconut plants (lots here in Florida)
- Pieces of tree trunks discarded by people
- Fallen bark from trees
Ivonne said they gathered anything that... looked interesting while they were out on their afternoon walks. They put it all together using hot glue.

Fairy House and Twig Fences
This house is made using a log, bark, and a few other supplies. I just love the two little lanterns or decorations on either side of the door.
Ivonne says the 'lanterns' are palm seeds. Over the door is another seed that falls from trees in Ivonne's yard.Continue to 4 of 10 below.

Fairy Wishing Well Craft
From Ivonne - "This little well was made with a pill bottle as base. I put black construction paper inside it. I used two sticks to hold on the roof top. The roof top is the lose skin of the coconut tree. The little pebbles were glued on with Hot glue. Someone told me that I could have used Gorilla Glue but I had already finished the project. I am not sure if it is better, it probably is. Up to now, the houses have been out more than a month and they are doing great."Continue to 9 of 10 below.
