Spring has sprung and I’m working on all sorts of projects around the house this week! I thought I’d take a few minutes before Easter Sunday though and put together an easy Fairy Garden Spring Flower Centerpiece for my kitchen table. Fairy Gardens are all the rage right now and spring is the perfect time to put your touch on this popular trend! To make things easier for you, Folk Art just came out with a whole new line of Fairy Garden products to make “getting your fairy garden on” super simple and easily customizable. Let’s take a look at how I easily created this Spring Flower Centerpiece.
What you need:
Folk Art Super Glow Paint
FolkArt Mini Stencils
Folk Art Fairy Garden Wooden Doors and Windows
Folk Art Acrylic Paint in choice colors
Folk Art Paint Brushes
Hot Glue/Glue gun
Flowers of choice
Start by washing and drying your vases. Next, add a thick layer of white rocks to the bottom of your round vase. I got my white rocks for $2.99 from Hobby Lobby.
Next, use your tall vase to level the rocks and place it in the back corner of the vase to create a little staging area in the front of the round vase for your fairy garden. Once you’ve leveled where your tall vase will go, pull it out and using your hot glue gun and decorative moss create your fairy’s house. I hot glued the moss directly onto the vase going about 2/3 of the way up the vase.
Then you get to the fun part of decorating! I used the little wooden doors, windows, mailbox, and signs that Folk Art put out to create a cute little scene. I used Folk Art Acrylic paint to paint them and used small Folk Art brushes to get in all the tiny crannies.
For the doors and windows, after painting them I used my hot glue gun to fill in the blank spaces so they appear to have glass in them. Then I used Folk Art Super Glow paint to create a glow at night coming from the windows and doors. Super Glow paint is a permanent, indoor/outdoor, glow-in-the-dark acrylic paint that, when exposed to bright light, recharges over and over! It can be used on most all craft surfaces and is water based and non toxic!!
Next, I used Folk Art Fairy Garden stencils to stencil cute little words on the signs…with fairy gardens, the small details are what matters the most.
Finally, I hot glued all of my little mini decorations in place and added a little path of smaller, glittered rocks to the fairy front door.
Then I added my tulips and enjoyed the fruits of my labor!!
The nice thing about a fairy garden is that there is no right or wrong way to create it. It can be any color, any style that you want it to be! For me, I wanted something light and springy, but I can easily change out the items inside the vase to go with any season of the year!!
