Gnome Homes! Elf Doors! Dish Gardens!
Put on your fun creativity hat and come make these on Sat.,
April 4 at 10am. We’ll make these for sale at the Blooms & Garden day on
May 9—or to keep if you just can’t part with your creation!
What to bring? We
will supply some materials but bringing more would be helpful. Here’s a list:
• glue gun
• Toilet paper tubes, plastic
bottles, small boxes and cardboard are all useful for forming a base for the
fairy and gnome homes.
• Moss, lichen, small plants, birch
bark, pebbles, and other natural materials for gardens or houses.
• Planters, even broken ones, for
the dish gardens.
• Potting soil.
In the meantime, check out fairy gardens etc. on Pinterest
Please note: Because we’ll be working with hot glue, this
activity is not suitable for young children. Older ones with adult supervision
would be fine.
