Ideas for fairy garden crafts

Loving this idea from Craft Invaders – how to make acorn cap solar LED lights (aka fairy garden lights) – this is so clever. These are perfect for adorning a little fairy garden. They are powered using an adapted LED garden solar light, and they have put together a step-by-step tutorial for you to try this yourselves. This is not something I would have ever thought have — bravo, Craft Invaders!
