I am so excited to announce that I am apart of the 2017 – 2018 DecorArt Core Blogger Team!!  Woohoo!! I’m so thrilled to be apart of this amazing team with some pretty talented ladies.

My first project is an easy DIY Fairy Garden!  I love the idea of a Fairy garden project, but I wanted to give it a touch of coastal style. You know me I can never pass up turning something into a coastal project. It’s my superpower ;-).

DecoArt has some amazing Patio Paint colors.  It was really hard to choose from, but I decided I wanted to go with the Coral Sunset and Blue Bahama for the chairs. For the boat I went with the Cloud White and Larkspur Blue.

The paint went on pretty thick so I only needed one coat for the chairs and blue on the boat.  The white on the boat needed two coats. Let each coat dry 20 minutes.

After I got my items painted I had to gather up the rest of my supplies for this DIY Fairy Garden. I found some AMAZING beachy themed accessories.

Let’s get started!!

I had this old pot (it might be an old wash tub) from last year that I cleaned up to use for my fairy garden. It was perfect since it was already filled up with dirt.

I just needed to add my sand on top.  Since this will be in my patio area, the sand will be perfectly fine (as long as the cats stay away!)

Now it’s time to decorate with all my great accessories! Now this part is up to you. Since it was a beachy scene I didn’t want to go too crazy with the accessories.  I wanted it to feel like you walked out the backdoor of your beach house. Sitting by the fire with a glass of wine and your hubby (I should have looked for a mini wine glass!).

I felt the scene needed something extra so I lightly painted a mini terracotta pot with some of the White Cloud and Larkspur Blue. I added a cute succulent on top!

I added some extra succulents around the chairs to complete my scene! I think everything looks perfect.

Honestly I don’t know which part is my favorite. I love how that boat turned out as well.  I wish I could walk out my backdoor to this scene!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out this super simple DIY Fairy Garden. I have a lot more outdoor projects in mind using these Patio Paints.
