DIY TeePee Tree - Fall Decor

DIY Tee Pee Tree

 While decorating our front porch for fall (it's still
a work in progress) I decided the items 
needed a bit of height...

DIY Tee Pee Tree

I pulled a piece of scrap wood from the pile
in the garage that was 8"X19" and I cut two
8"X8" squares using the chop saw. 

The dowels were leftover from a different project, 
so they were sitting in the scrap wood pile too.

Using a 1/4" spade bit and the screwdriver, holes
were easily scraped out, leaving the perfect 
spot for the dowels to cozy up to.
A bit of liquid nails and a touch of white spray paint
and they sat overnight in the garage till time
was on my side....

DIY Tee Pee Tree

The tops were strategically pinched together as garden
twine was wrapped around the top and a bit of hot glue was used
to seal the twine in place. Once the teepees were finished, 
a knotted loop of twine was all that was used to hang the
 Natural Grapevine Garland (on sale at A.C.Moore
for $2.50) and the rest was loosely wrapped around
the teepee. 

Simple and inexpensive decor, which
will be fun to add lights to as well.

DIY Fairy Garden

DIY Fairy Garden

Gearing up for a Fairy Themed
Birthday party and I thought the best gift to give the
Birthday Girl would be here very own Fairy Garden!

I asked my handy hubby to build me a tray and he 
whipped up this sweet little one with a scrap piece of
wood & a piece of trim. No time to fill the nail holes
before the party but time enough to put it all together!

DIY Fairy Garden

I had collected some acorn tops and mossy bits of 
tree bark on a bike ride through the woods. A fairy
holding a fox was found at A.C.Moore, along with a
bag of moss (more on the plastic side so it wouldn't 
make a huge mess once finished)

DIY Fairy Garden

I started gluing the moss down piece by piece using
hot glue and filled in any empty spots with smaller
pieces. I used the entire bag of moss for 
this project, since I wanted the moss to look 
gloriously green and full.

DIY Fairy Garden

I placed the fairy on top of the moss and arranged 
the bits of nature I found in the woods. 
I'm not sure who loved it more, the Birthday Girl
or her Mama!

Fairy Garden and join in the fun!
