My Simple Fairy Garden from the Dollar Tree

Hi all! I have just a short and simple post for you today. This is something that’s been around for awhile, but it took me a bit to get on board. For one thing, I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on the pieces. Well, the Dollar Tree fixed that! I found the green bowl, the house and the bench at the local Dollar Tree. The plants and the mushroom (not shown here) are from the 99 Cent Store. The topiary came from Holly Lobby last year on clearance, I think it was $1.77. The piece of doorknob came from my own stash.

First I drilled holes in the bottom of the bowl so the water would drain and not sit in the bottom. After drilling the holes, I filled the bowl with potting soil and then the fun of putting the pieces in!

I added the plants, a primrose and a couple of succulents, to the back of the bowl. I also placed the mushroom in the back since it is taller.

Then I added the house, bench and topiary and finished with the doorknob in the front like a little rock for the fairy to sit on.

I hope I can find more pieces to add later. It will be fun to see what else I can find!

I will definitely be visiting the Dollar Tree more often to see if they have more pieces. Have a great week!

Corner News-August 20, 2016

Good Saturday afternoon!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned. We are hosting a bridal shower this morning, Lauren is hosting a Premier jewelry party tonight and Haley and I volunteer at the shelter on Sunday. I think I will be too tired to start setting up my classroom on Monday. Right? Can I use that as an excuse? Probably not. LOL.

Here is the special bridal chair Lauren put together. Isn’t it cute? The bride isn’t into foofoo, but oh well, She will have to deal with it!

I got to spend some time with my two favorite great-nieces on Friday. We sang and moved to some of my preschool songs, played with a dollhouse and spent time in the pool. I wish I could have gotten in with them. It was very hot.

 

Here is my front porch. I thought this was a good transition from summer to fall. It still looks cool and fresh, but is a little more muted than the bright summer colors I had out there. I found the cute little mushrooms at the .99 cent store. I love finding fun little decorating stuff like that.
