Make this farm-styled fairy garden with a barn birdhouse!
The birdhouse find
I have this barn styled birdhouse I found on THIS junkin’ expedition. Seeing that fairy gardens appear to be the hottest thing in gardens this summer, I set about creating one out of the birdhouse… farm style of course!
The farm-styled fairy garden tour!
In my front yard near the road is one very tall tree with loads of perennials begging for a focal point. When we sit on the front yard bench, we face this space, so it was the perfect spot for a fun garden focal point.
A fairy garden barn
The design didn’t rely heavily on purchased miniature features… mostly just sticks and stones and junky things that would make a good fit.
Rocky path fairy garden walkways
A perfect little stone pathway on a slight curve greets visitors at the front gate.
Enchanting branch fairy garden arbour
A few pieces of driftwood were the perfect candidates for the entry and fence, held together with heavy string.
Uh oh… monster cat invasion! There’s actually a purpose for her visit.
She drinks here. Where you ask?
Flowers in a garbage can fairy garden pond
Within the fairy garden is a garbage can lid filled with water for the ‘pond’. Freshly cut blooms provide many days of beauty. It’s quite impressive how fresh they stay outdoors!
Rocks are placed inside the lid so birds (and cat) can enjoy a bit of shallow splashing.
Railway fairy garden crossing
The perfect little metal railroad crossing sign was perfect for this fairy garden! The presence of a train is a staple for any farmland areas!
The perfect fairy garden barn view
Doesn’t it look like the birdhouse barn is situated amongst the tallest of trees?
These bachelor button flowers keep returning in abundance each year! And they fill in all the nooks and crannies of this little farm scene perfectly!
Join me down this rocky path towards the barn, won’t you?
If you look to the upper right, you’ll see a piece of a wheel. That’s the picnic table. 🙂 Buttons are the plates, and bolts are the seats.
Such a fun little project that couldn’t have been simpler to pull off.
Do you have any fairy gardens on the go? Why not grab a birdhouse of choice and start one? I’ll throw a linkup party during a weekend SNS in July so you have some time to play. Fun!
Happy summer to you! And make sure you send those farmer fairies our way. 😀
