★ Hot-glue gunStep 1
To make the garden’s base, give the terracotta saucer 1-2 coats of paint.Step 2
2 opposite stems together to form an arch and glue together at the top. Give leaves a coat of spray glitter and add these and other flowers until you are pleased with the result.Step 3
Pour pebbles into the base to hide the glued stems. Add dolls-house furniture or Disney Fairies merchandise to create a picnic spot for your fairies.
★ Small pebblesStep 1
Give the foam ball 2 coats of lilac paint (or any colour to blend with flower petals). Wrap dowel with green ribbon, securing each end with glue. Poke dowel into the painted ball and glue to secure. This will form the stem of the topiary.Step 2
Cover ball with artificial flowers and leaves, gluing in place as you go. Place other end of dowel upright in the bucket and pour pebbles all around so it stands up by itself. Glue 4 lengths of 40mm ribbon where ball meets dowel, and pull ribbons out from the centre.
