Create a cute fairy garden bench swing using a few easy-to-gather materials, including a wine cork, wooden dowels, and twine.
The best way to attract fairies to your fairy garden? Provide a relaxing place for them to sit, of course! Crafting a fairy bench swing will be the perfect complement to your mini garden space.
Use knife to cut cork in half lengthhwise. Slice a sliver off both ends to remove wine stain and branding.
On each side, use hand drill to create holes where swing ropes will go.
Thread twine through needle and guide it through the premade holes. Tie a knot to secure the twine. Repeat on other side. The swing is now complete!
To create the swing frame, cross two dowels so they overlap at 0.25 inch and the other ends are 3 inches apart. Place a piece of tape under the crossing point to secure the dowels. Flip over and wrap tape around dowel, pressing tape to surface. Repeat so that you have two sets.
Apply hot glue to the crossing points to join the dowels and create the "legs" of the swing set. Let glue dry.
Remove tape from legs. Apply a drop of hot glue into each crux, and set a dowel in glue to create the top bar of the swing set. Let the glue dry.
Paint structure if desired. Tie swing to top bar, and cut away any extra twine.
