I have a fun craft to share with you today. This is something you can create with the kids or just for yourself! Living in New England we are dealing with freezing temperatures and snow, so I am dreaming of sandy beaches and sunshine! I was browsing the craft store the other day and saw they had an entire aisle dedicated to fairy gardens. I couldn’t believe the incredible variety. My daughter’s favorite movie when she was younger was The Little Mermaid. Honestly, I think I liked it just as much as her! When I saw this little mermaid I knew it would be perfect for a Beach Themed Fairy Garden.
Here is what you need to create your own:
I received product used in this post from Activa Products.
4 bags of colored sand found here
Mermaid, Seagull & shells
Slowly pour the sand in the container of your choice. I love being able to see the different layers of colored sand as shown below:
Then just add your mermaid, seagull and shell and whatever items you like. You can add a layer of white rocks like I did or just leave it as is. Just have fun with it and let your inner child out! Here is a small glass teacup I also made just adding a real succulent-hopefully I won’t kill it!
