Wagon Fairy Garden

I have my mom's old wagon. The plastic wheels on it finally deteriorated and when I couldn't find replacements, I just stuck it out of the way until I decided what I wanted to do with it. When I wanted to make a fairy garden, the wagon instantly popped into my mind as the perfect container for it.

It sits on my concrete bench out front perfectly. I filled it with soil and added plants. Next, I took my fairies I added magic to and started placing them in the wagon.

First I put a pedestal then added a lantern on top of it to make a castle. The sleeping dragon keeps guard while the pink fairy sits inside.
 Someday, I'm going to fancy up the inside of the "castle" but for now Miss Pink Fairy has a soft moss bed.

Next, I took a wooden miniature birdhouse

painted it to look like stone and added pinecone shingles and a cork door

and placed it on top of the candlestick with the fairy and turtle. Into the wagon it went!

A white picket fence (to keep the dragon out) and mushroom mailbox was added as well.

 Is that Snail Mail being delivered? Why yes, yes it is! 😀

And Toad and Sweet Fairy enjoy their spot among the flowers.

The mushroom house was next to go in

The potted grass is decorated with cute red polka dot mushrooms

I added some cork and acorn cap mushrooms close to the dragon

A bunny farm sits on the window ledge across from the fairy garden - after all, bunnies are afraid of dragons!

The gnomes are still waiting on their home as well as the fox. Then I have this fairy a friend gave me. She told me she knew I could make her look good.
Yikes, time to break out the spray paint primer!
Oh, much better already! However, she must wait her turn...there's a gnome way ahead of her!

I had a lot of fun creating my fairy garden. Hmm, now where is the gnome garden going to go?
