Imagine the delight when your child finds a family of super cute Fairy Garden snails hidden in their fairy garden!
It’s the detail that adds magic and personality to a fairy garden.
The hidden treasures and tiny decorative touches brings a fairy garden to life. They inspire a sense of wonder and whimsy that is magical.
And this week we have a gorgeous idea for making Fairy Garden Snails from sea shells!
Spiral Sea Shells
Any acrylic paint (water based for easy clean up)
Small Sticks – around double the length of your shell. This will be your snail’s body which needs to poke out the ends of the shell.
How to Make Fairy Garden Snails
- Wash your Sea Shells in warm, soapy water
Be sure to dry them completely
- Paint each shell using your paint
We found one coat of paint was enough
- Using the Glue Gun, glue a shell on top of each stick
Ensuring the stick pokes out the front, so your Fairy Garden Snail has a body. Allow glue to dry
- Glue small white beads on the end of each stick for eyes
Paint a small black dot in the middle of the beads, so your snail can see.
