I had originally planned something different for this challenge, but the lawn service obliterated my garden area outside my house and it looked horrible and I needed to do something with it and it is too late in the season to try to replant, so I decided to make it a fairy/whimsy garden for this fall.



Items purchased at the Dollar Store (not all are pictured)

-   1 bag large decorative stones
-   1 bag small decorative stones
-   DVDs (2 for $1)
-   1 pkg Glue sticks
-   1 pkg of glue sticks
-   1 pkg rubber bands
-   1 pkg pipe cleaners
-   1 stem silk flowers
-   1 flower girl figurine


Frog in a pond


Paper Bag Mushroom


Toad House


Fairy House


Fly man and fly pod


Angel with fairy wings


Barrel


Fairy house and paper bag mushroom:


DVD Case Wooden Lean-to Shanty



I got lots of inspirations from other sites on the web and will list them later, as well (as links to tutorials if anyone is interested) as I work 3 shift - 12 hour shifts  for the next couple of days and need to get some sleep.

That is really the most creative use of laundry containers that I've ever seen! The whole garden is so cute and fun- great job!

A clean house is a sign of a wasted life.

Great project! So much more creative that plants and so much easier to care for.
