Archive for the ‘Fairy homes & Hobbit Huts’ Category

While out for a walk my daughter spotted some gorgeous cushion moss so we brought some home to add it to the terrarium we had made together. I also had several small pots that were waiting for some inspiration so decided to make a small fairy garden village.

I had some oven bake clay already so made some little fairy homes and toadstools, I added a piece of wire into the pieces so they could stand up securely. Cut a piece of the cushion moss to fit and lay some kitchen towel over the drain hole in the pot. Then added some stones for drainage, placed the moss on top and smoothed it into the sides of the pot. Next when the clay items were baked and cool I just needed to arrange them. Just need to collect my daughters terrarium now and fix it up with the moss and village/toadstools she is so excited to see the end result when she gets home from work. Will take a picture when I have finished but the one I made for myself is pictured below with the Halloween crochet I have just finished.

Terrarium all fixed up, it has a nice lid for the top but have’t included it here, will have to get one when I take it over to my daughters home. Think I will have to give her a spray with a wee drop of plant food to care for it, because  she doesn’t have a green  thumb ;-P

Just finished making a couple of  fairy homes to sit on a desk, well nearly finished just need to give them a coat of sealer. Not sure if these will go on my New Zealand Felt shop or they will be snapped up beforehand or given as gifts.

I am tempted to keep these but I have a good stash of driftwood and bits and pieces from the beach to make some more. Trouble is my dining table is so messy for days while I am making them. Could really do with my own space in a shed or the garage, although the hubs isn’t too pleased with the growing stack of beach finds taking up his garage space.

Can’t go for a walk anywhere without bringing something home for a craft project.
