Happy June, everyone! This month marks the end of spring and the start of warmer weather and outdoor fun. One of my favorite parts of the season is the return of the fairy garden. These versatile gardens can be made outside or in the comfort of your home. They are also a great way to get the children in your life interested in gardening and using their creativity to make tiny worlds of their own. So, whether you decide to make one yourself or go out and admire the handiwork of other fairy friends, be sure to keep an eye out for these whimsical crafts. Below, you will find some resources that could inspire you to seek out or create a fairy home:
