Last year I spotted a number of pins of bird baths being repurposed as fairy gardens and I thought they looked awesome. I happened to have a standard concrete bird bath that wasn't doing anything to enhance the look of my lawn. I decided to create my own little fairy garden, minus the real plants . . .
