I love to make and create, you? I started feeling craftsy after my first child was born. Became quickly hooked and have been making toys and clothes ever since. I live on the Gold Coast with my hubby and five beautiful children who are usually the inspiration of my work. If there is a greener or cheaper way to creating something I'll usually find it. My other loves include painting, drawing, clay, sculpture, fairy gardens and anything miniature or cute.

How fantastic does this cute little Fairy Village look. I'll show you how you can easily make one. NO SKILLS NECESSARY!! Follow my tutorial step by step...easy for beginners.
Everything you see in the photo's I'll show you how to make, including: a hypertufa bowl/pot, cement fairy towers using a mould that you'll make, miniature concrete pebble paths, a miniature clothes line with washing, pegs, washing basket, miniature gumboots and fairy shoes, lamp, fairy tree lights, a tyre swing, sign post, fruit and vegie stand, vegetable garden, mushroom table and stools, strawberry layer cake, cake stand and cups. Phew...of course you don't have to make everything, you may like to just take bits and pieces. What's really cool about this project is the windows, lamps, and fairy tree lights can glow in the dark!
You'll be able to enjoy this garden all year round as an inside open terrarium or place on an outside table to become a great conversation piece.
The pot is made of hypertufa, it's very easy and fun to make, one trip to the local garden store for a bag of cement, perlite and peatmoss is all you'll need. Like I said 'no skills are necessary'...but you will need patience. Start to finish will take about 4 weeks, this is the time needed for the pot to cure, make all the bits and pieces while you wait.
I don't use expensive tools or products, everything you'll need is cheap, or recycled and easy to find at the craft or dollar store.
Easy for beginners to follow with step by step directions (see sample page in photos) 200 colour photos
You'll have so much fun creating this, and I bet you won't wait to show it off. Think of all the wonderful gifts you'll be able to make.
