FeeFiFoFun’s models wove their magic by trekking into the neighbouring forests and beaches of Lake Ontario for some mischievous fairy photo fun. Following the shoot, we had some serious fairy fun for kids making a wee fairy garden in the front yard.
Start with a Fairy Door
First we started with placing a tiny door against a tree. Sugar Bush Fairies in Guelph make a wonderful selection of fairy doors. They are not only beautiful and well priced, but are sturdy. Our Celtic door has weathered in the garden through four winters and still looks great!
Add Furniture and Plantings
Our fairy garden is under a huge White Pine tree. It’s very shady, so we’ve left it naturalized, but if you are in an apartment you could add some cool plants into a terrarium or planter.
The fairy furniture is a mix of homemade and store bought. The small metal chairs and sidewalk are from Sheridan’s Nursery and the ceramic toadstools are from the dollar store. We’ve experimented with bamboo stick flags and other crafts.
You don’t have to rush. Pieces for your fairy garden can be added over months and even years.
