Elf house on a tree! That would be cute in the garden, especially in the tree over grown with ivy. How about some battery tea lights in the windows during outdoor parties. I hear the fairies/elves whispering "home school project" in my ear.
Oh my gosh! h my gosh! I have these gourds! What a great project for fall/FUN! Fairy Garden Gourd-Shaped Fairy Home - I would love to try making something like this with a fake pumpkin when the fall decorations come out.
