With this ornament, I was able to re-purpose a couple of vintage rose boughs as well as some tiny pearl Christmas decorations and tinsel. I also raided my stash of dried roses. I spotted the snowflakes at my local Dollar store and loved them just the way they were, but knew I wanted to jazz them up for this project.
I gathered my materials and began pulling the rose boughs apart with wire cutters. I separated the leaves from the roses and the vines, cut the tinsel and removed the hardware from the pearl Christmas decorations. In the end, I didn’t use as much tinsel as I thought I would because it overwhelmed the ornaments.
Using my trusty glue gun, I just arranged my materials over 5 snowflakes and here’s the result. They make me think of a vintage English Christmas. Not sure why ;-).
I first discovered Fairy Gardens on Pinterest. (In fact, I have a board dedicated to Fairy Gardens) I love how tiny everything is and the whimsy associated with creating a make believe nook in the corner of the garden. I love doll houses and all things miniature, so it’s no surprise that I’m really taken with these gardens. Eek! It’s a yarn basket made from a walnut shell. —->

When you finish this Fairy Garden thing, can I sit next to the door and wait for the fairies to come out? I won’t bother anything, I’ll just sit and wait. I’ve never seen a fairy before. Is it kind of like a butterfly? Or a hummingbird? I’m so excited, I can’t wait.
