Spoutwood Farm Faerie Festival
Every May, this organic CSA farm in PA does the Faerie Festival. Costumes, faerie houses, gardens, ways to honor the nature in your backyard. Use natural objects, recycled wonders, and thrift shop finds. Make use of discarded toys. Add interest to a garden angel or faerie with accessories. Tule holds up well in all kinds of weather. So does Rustoleum 2X (which sticks to anything). Hot glue doesn't: it only works well at room temp, too hot, too cold, it lets go. Paint rocks with any acrylic paint: it lasts. Use an acrylic clear coat for extra protection. Make labyrinths of bricks, tiles, rocks, haybales. Weave sticks into a fence, planter, birdbath base, faerie house. Collect found objects like river pebbles, bay cobbles, shells, twigs. Feathers of native birds are protected by game laws (so no one kills the birds for their feathers as they used to, and a market for them doesn't develop). If found in your garden, they can stay in your garden: decoratively. Also, there are lots of beautiful chicken, turkey and pheasant feathers (domestic fowl) available at craft stores and farms.
You could make your own garden Moss Man from rope the way they make baggywrinkles for ships. Baggywrinkles are masses of frayed rope hung on the ship's rigging to prevent sails from chafing on lines. This Moss Man appears to wear a coat of shaggy rope.
