How to make a Fairy Garden Swing. - The Magic Onions

How to make a Fairy Garden Swing.

All you need to make a swing for your Fairy Garden are…
Pliers, thin, bendable wire and some sticks and stones.

Cut a long piece of wire and select a long, flat stone. We used a small sea brick that we collected on the beach, rubbed smooth by waves and time.
Bend the wire in half. Your stone swing seat will be attached in the middle of the bend. Wind the wire around one side of the stone and then the other with the strand of connecting wire running along the underside of the swing seat. Bend the wire around the sides of the seat and attach the tops to your Fairy Tree branch.

If your Fairy Garden doesn’t have a tree, use sticks and the wire to make a frame for your swing to connect onto.

Here is The Clean Plate Club’s delightful entry into The Magical Fairy or Gnome Garden Challenge and Giveaway. Have a look at their awesome swing.

A very sweet addition to your Fairy Garden.
