Fairy Garden - Gone Camping

My Fairies have gone camping. Who says Fairies don't play corn hole ? I made a little campfire with a tealight candle and glued some wood together. I created marshmallows out of old pencil erasers. I painted them with glow in the dark paint. They are so cute ! The skewers are made from paper clips. The corn hole boards were scrap wood that I painted & I made the bean bags out of tape.The birds nest is an acorn. The lampost is a dowel rod and a white knob that I painted with glow in the dark paint. It lights up pretty well, but impossible to get a decent picture ! I had these little porcelain round thingys I painted red & did white polka dots and glued a little base on for the table. The stools are little wooden knobs I painted. Perfect table for fairies. The clothes line is just wire and plant markers. The Tutu's are ribbon. I really like the tiny clothes pins. I made a grill from an idea I seen on pinterest from Dollarstorecrafts from a plastic gumball machine. I planted a miniature hosta for now.
