Rated 5 out of 5 by from away with the fairies! When it comes to a guide on how to build fairy furniture, this really is fantastic. The authors start by teaching you what to look for in your daily walks, how to gather and preserve natural items with love and care, and then go on to show you how to build a multitude of different items. I love handing this book over to my niece, she picks a project and then we get started. All you need is hot glue, a few twigs, some moss, and you're good to go. Lots of great pictures, ideas on how to get more creative, and projects both big and small. Definitely something to pick up if you're into the recent fairy garden craze.
