Easter Fairy Garden Materials

This craft is easily customized. All you need to start is a canister, tin or bucket to begin, a bit of grass or moss to fill the basket and the build  the fairy's living space.

  • Tin, canister or basket
  • Grass or moss for filler
  • Glue gun
  • Sticks 
  • Accessories for the fairy's house (we suggest shopping in the dollhouse supplies).
