Soon the holidays will be here and if you are looking for a special, unique item as a gift for someone else or if you are like me, you can't help by buy things for yourself while shopping for others. ;)
Here are a few gift ideas from my shop, Woodland Fairy Village.

Here are a few newer items:
I also have many new designs coming soon to my Etsy shop! "Getting Rid of Silence" will be a woodland scene that includes a faery. This Woodland art piece is very close to my heart. It is a piece that displays the needed abolishment of the silence of abuse.
Also I have another coffee shop fairy house coming soon. =) My coffee shop designs are a highly favored fairy house.
I'll be posting more images here soon as well as new Woodland Kreatures from Sandy's Etsy shop as well.
Thanks for your continued support!

We are heading towards Autumn, my favorite time of year and many Etsy sellers and crafters are getting ready for the season! Many fall items are currently being found in local Michaels Stores, Hobby Lobby and JoAnn's so it's a perfect time to start crafting! I know that Sandy from Woodland Kreatures is busy making many new Kreatures for her Etsy shop! I am also busy making many new fairy related items for my Etsy shop as well as making some special commission custom fairy houses. Check out some of both of our past sales to see the kind of work we do:

I plan on extending it to a designated area in my backyard next year. Wouldn't it be incredible to have an enchanted fairy forest in your yard? I think so too. Many people ask me about finding supplies. Well, my fairy houses are for indoors so I really had to research places to find some inexpensive items. Because of the recent enormous popularity rise of fairy gardens and fairy houses (I am not complaining), it was safe to assume that many companies are charging a fortune for fairy garden supplies. Well, even if I didn't use all of these here are some great item ideas.
Fairy garden stepping stones: Use rocks you find or if you want the circle kind or square, why not buy some inexpensive tiles from Home Depot or Lowes. Many of these places have inexpensive rock looking tile that for the price is well worth it. For 16.97 a sheet its a great item to split with a few friends or use for multiple fairy gardens. There are many variations of designs and prices out there. I went inside of a little gift shop a few weeks ago and they had tiles similiar to this broken up in a set of 3 for $8. O_O
Fairy bridge: A staple for any fairy garden you see bridges are very popular. If you are not comfortable with using thick wire to create a bridge yourself then check out a few cheaper places to find them.
The blue fairy bridge to the left is from Ebay member 'miniature-gardening' they are pretty reasonable and have some super cute fairy garden items.
Here is a rusty fairy bridge for $6.99 from Amazon.
I used one similiar to this and it's nice. Although after looking at it I decided that I will be creating my own next year.
Outdoor Fairies: Looking for some miniature fairies to put outdoors in your fairy garden that are inexpensive? I found these really cute fairies online for only $2.95 each! Of course they are not anything like the indoor style one of kinds that Woodland Kreatures Sandy makes (She's so talented!) or even my Earthen Faeries, but for the outdoors, they are great. Here is the website: Miniature Gardens.
Other great ideas can be found with just things you may already have around your house.With recycling being such a great thing we can always find ways to make them 'fairy like.'
Here are some ideas:
Fairy garden Hammock: Make a fairy "Hammock" from an artificial leaf, a piece of cheese cloth or a recycled potato net sack.
Fairy garden house: For the house itself why not recycle a milk jug or plastic coffee container. I found a great paint that can be used on plastic. Check the back. Just make sure you secure the plastic house a few inches inside of your soil so I doesn't fly away in the wind. O_o
Fairy sitting posts can be made by using twigs that you have found on a nature walk. But please only use the fallen ones you find. I put a coat of varnish to keep it from becoming too brittle too fast.
Whatever you use in your fairy garden the best feature can be the extra touches that you individually make. I always prefer the fairy gardens that use more imagination than store bought items.
Have fun and keep the fairy dream alive!
