Would you make a Fairy Garden?
Fairy gardens have become increasingly popular within the past few years. Making one that is uniquely your own can be inspirational and spark your creative juices. The best part is that you can make many of the decorations yourself!
My old earrings that have lost their pairs.
What You´ll Need
1. Make the Hook
Twist the top section of the metallic wire into a circle. Use the wire cutters to cut the bottom to be the length you desire.
2. String the Earring
Remove the broken element of the earrings, such as the earring hooks, and string the earring onto the wire. Then, place it in your garden!

How To Attract Fairies With Your Fairy Garden
People have tried to attract fairies to their home and left offerings for them as well as spirits. In my home country, Finland, porridge was left for tonttu (the elf). In many countries, people left out bread, milk, and cookies for fairies. With your garden, you can bring some fairy magic to your home. Decorate it with small objects such as buttons, keys, beds, broken eyeglasses, or whatever comes to your mind. The possibilities are endless. Have fun!
Fairy Magic To Your Home
Weather you are having a fairy themed birthday party or just wish to bring little magic to your home these magical fairy bottles are going to make gorgeous eye-catchers.
2 Glass bottles
shimmering acrylic paint
Painting The Bottles
I chose two bottles that have wide open neck so that I can fit all the fairy lights inside. First paint the bottles with a sponge that is dipped into acrylic paint. I used shimmering acrylic paints. Other bottle is going to be pink and the other one is going to be purple. Naturally pink bottle is going to have pink fairy lights and purple one will have purple fairy lights.
Remember to wash your sponge between painting so that the colors wont get smudged.
Let the paint dry about half-an hour and then fill bottles with fairy lights.
Ribbons and Decorations
You can take this tutorial step further and decorate your bottles with stickers, flowers and ribbons.
Your fairy bottles are all done! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
