Fairy Festival Garden Art

Several years ago, while walking around Philadelphia, we discovered some school yard art that featured repurposed and recycled bottle caps secured on plywood. Large and colorful, it was a bright spot along our walk. We truly loved this eye-catching idea and shared a blog post here. Well, over the years, we have been collecting and saving bottle caps to create a pop of color in the garden! We now have our own festive garden art for the upcoming Fairy Festival this weekend.








Special thanks to the combined talented efforts of artist Patti V. for designing and drawing these clever pieces of garden art, thanks to handyman Ron A. for skillfully cutting them out, thanks to artist Marj R. for artistically placing the bottle caps, and to Susanna R. for coordinating the team effort to bring this project to fruition. They have been placed about the garden in preparation for the festival.


And special thanks to Matt H. for this festive cut out tea pot. It's simply perfect for tea room garden art!Don't you just love each and every one?

Well, my goodness, how clever! And yes, I do love them all, but you won't be surprised to hear I have a favorite ... ;)

Oh I just LOVE them all! What a perfect addition to the garden. I would definitely be tip-toeing through your garden just to see this art if I was close enough to come.
