Even the wee folk need to keep warm in the winter!

Fairy garden fireplace

Working on miniature furniture in the shop, today! Just adding the finishing touches to this Fairy fireplace, which is complete with a roaring fire and extra kindling! Thinking that a couple winged back chairs would compliment the hearth very well! We shall see..

Have a lovely Sunday. 🙂

 

 

 

Twigs and moss and birch, oh my! DIY miniature furniture for Fairy gardens!

Fairy bed with canopy - Karen Sloan - Wall Flower StudioCreating miniature twig furniture has become quite the creative outlet for me. These wee pieces are a lot of fun to make! They add just the right magical touch to a miniature fairy garden.

All you need is a glue gun, some branches, a bit of moss,  acorns, and other little found bits, then you’re off to the races. In fact, half the fun is foraging for the materials, and if you have kids, it’s a fun nature activity that everyone will enjoy!

This photo shows a wee canopy bed I made. A few inches of white tulle for the top and voila! It seemed to add just a little touch of charm! The matching ‘duvet’ and ‘pillow case’ are made from matching birch bark. Have to add, I mainly use found items from the forest floor.

If you’re interested in viewing some of my sold pieces to get ideas, please feel free to visit my Flickr photos.

Happy foraging!
