Enchanted Fairy Garden Gift Box

Little J made a gnome garden this summer around our garden pond. There are miniature gnomes, toadstools both big and small, miniature ceramic animals in hiding, and little furniture. Plantings include miniature hostas, chickens and hens, ferns, and snapdragons. He loves playing there and we're still adding to it.

My niece’s birthday is coming up at the end of February, she'll be 11. I've decided to make her a box filled with things to make an enchanted fairy garden. I hope she likes it.

Fairy door and fairies found at HearthSong. Flower seed for snapdragons, marigolds, purple zinnias, and sweet peas from Lowes. Purple glass drops from Michael's. Dragon Fly clips, intended for orchids, found at Lowes. She loves the color purple as if you haven't figured that out yet!
