Fairy Fishpond


Today I made a new fairyland scene, now we have a sprite fishing in a tiny fishpond in our  kitchen windowsill. Our son was so happy to discover the little fellow.
These scenes really add something magical to your home or garden 
and are so simple to create for children too.


 For this scene I have used a drip tray for flower pots. The 'waterplants' are made of basil and a seedling sandwiched  between two pieces of rock crystal. The sprite has shoes made of beeswax so he can stand firmly on the rock. The float is made ​​of a pin which is pinned in a ball of beeswax. And the fishing rod is a small branch with thread and is attached between the hands with some beeswax.


You can also place the tray with water in a large bowl with earth and let a reed of watercress grow around it. Children will love to water the little seedlings and watch them grow. 
Or add simple walnut shell boats made of leaves, branches and beeswax. 

Here are some more fairyland scenes and I wish you all a magical weekend!
