Fall Fairy Gardens
To make a fairy garden, you need to find natural things that would make a pretty place for fairy folk to visit.
I like to cut off the side of a small pumpkin and clean out the seeds and goop. Then I fill it with stones and other assorted natural trinkets which serve as tables and seats. A few acorns make it look festive, too. Then I place it outside, in an out-of-the-way location, and make pebble paths leading to tree branch structures and other fairy abodes. You can decorate your garden dwellings with mums, goldenrod, sedum, or any other fall flowers you can find.
My kids love doing this, and it adds a touch of whimsy to my garden. Now if only my dog would leave it alone!
