It's that time of year again! Time for the Tissue Box Challenge with JDaniel4sMom, just in time for Earth Day. She was sweet enough to ask me to be one of the judges this year, so I won't be participating in the contest, but I still wanted to make something because the boys love our tissue box creations (like last year's rocket ship).
I made some gnomes and fairies back when I had vertigo, and I thought it would be fun to create an earthy house for them. I hope that gnomes and fairies can coexist and don't get into fights.
I started by cutting up a small tissue box to add to a large tissue box, using duct tape.
Then I went for a walk in the woods and gathered moss, acorns, sticks, ferns, and forest flowers. With a little craft glue, it was easy to create an earth dwelling for my magical creatures:
I made little chairs and a table from sticks and bark. Acorn shells make perfect little bowls. And Paul helped me drill a hole in a thick stick to make a vase for the forest wildflowers. See the flower fairy on top? I thought she turned out cute.
Reid is always my most enthusiastic child when it comes to tissue box crafts. He can never wait for the glue to dry before he starts playing.
Readers, do you think that gnomes and fairies can get along, or do they need separate habitats?
