Fill the bottom of your mason jar with rocks. Apply a layer of moss on the rocks. Fill the back of your mason jar with moss. Add your fairy door and any miniatures with hot glue. Put the top on your mason jar and enjoy!
Make sure that the rock at the bottom of your jar is not going to roll away from the moss. Also, make sure that the moss is not going to fall off of the rock. If it does, add another layer of moss on top of the first one.
Fairy gardens are fun to put together and take apart again when you want to move them around or store them in the winter. This craft is easy to modify by using different sizes of jars and adding other decorations such as flowers and ribbons.
Have fun making your own fairy garden jars!
Begin tucking and pasting moss into all the gaps and crevices with super glue or hot glue and a craft stick or tweezers. Cover all of the exposed clay at the foundation of your house with moss as well. Break a few twigs and glue them to the home to make twig "stairs" for your fairy abode. Use more glue if needed.
You can make several houses out of one structure by making different sizes of holes in the roof for each room. This way, you can have a house for every fairy who visits you!
Fairy houses don't need to be very big. A little house for a little fairy is sufficient. However, if you want to attract many fairies, make several small houses and let them stand together. This will look like a tiny village for the visitors to enjoy.
If you want to make a fairy house that keeps on giving, plant seeds inside it. The fairies will take care of the plants until they are big enough to provide food for people too. Then, you will have a house that continues to grow throughout the year.
Fairies love flowers and trees, so if you want to make them happy, put these things around your house. You can also fill a bucket with water and sprinkle some around your yard. Fairies like to fly through water so this will help them find their way back home if they get lost.
So, take a Mason jar and glue up the top so you can sprinkle the Epsom salt on top for a snowy look. Then, using the baby's breathing flowers and the ribbons, add further adornment to the jar. Finally, add the fairy lights and you're finished. It's as simple as that!
This craft is perfect for young children who love snow scenes. You can use different colors of ribbon to make different-colored jars to create a winter wonderland effect. As well as jars, this craft works well with bowls and vases too!
You will need: cardboard or plastic containers (Mason jars are ideal but not essential), newspaper, scissors, glue, water, food coloring, small flowers, ribbon (of various colors if you want to create a multicolored jar), fairy lights.
First, cut out several circles from some old newspapers and then glue them on to the container. You can use any shape but try to keep them all similar sizes so they all look like snowflakes.
Once you have your shapes glued on, give them a good wash under the tap and dry them off completely before moving onto the next step.
Mix some water and some colorings in a bowl and dip one of the circles into the mixture.
If you prefer to use moss, glue it down to cover the foundation with waterproof glue. Attach the top of the fairy home to the bottom of the pot with E-6000 or another waterproof adhesive. Then, wrap a ring of glue around the top of the clay pot and set it on the foundation (into the moss). Allow it to dry for many hours. When it's dry, remove the ring of glue from the pot and your fairy house will be ready to fill with plants!
Fairy gardens can be used as decorative accents in the yard, or they can be planted with vegetables that will provide food for humans and their pets. If you want to include flowers in your fairy garden, think about what types of flowers are grown for cuttings: those that last for a long time without water are best.
Some varieties of roses, carnations, and asters will all grow this way. Take some cuttings when the plant is out of season and stick it in a glass of water with a little sugar water to help it grow more roots. Then, put the cutting into soil next year to grow into a new rose, flower bed, or garden plot.
Fairy gardens are fun to create and add beauty to any yard.
