Inspired by my friend Alixandra Mullins we decided to make our very own fall fairy house for our garden. We started by taking a nature walk through the woods. As we took our walk we spoke of fairies, we noticed the changes around us, and we collected items for our fairy house. Everything from the falling leaves to the acorns on the ground, spoke to us that fall was indeed in the air. For our fairy house we collected leaves, moss, and acorn tops and soon both Owen and Onawa were fast asleep. I continued my walk enjoying the quite of the woods, and letting the beautiful wonders of mother earth rejuvenate me. Back at home I got out our metarials. For this project you will need:
- A hot glue gun
- Elmer’s glue
- Wooden bird house (we purchased ours from Beverly’s)
- Items picked up from nature (leaves, acorns, moss, etc.)
We have yet to notice any visitors to the fairy house but we are sure to check it everyday in anticipation of a new friend.
