Find or make little houses, furniture, figurines. There are TONS of ideas on Pinterest or just do a Google search. My husband and I are actually in this hobby together. I can't believe how much fun we are having!

We Added Little Gnomes, Miniature Items, and a Fairy Door at the base of a tree.


3.  Foster Imagination


Not only will your imagination be sparked, but sharing the hobby with your children or grandchildren will spark ideas for stories and creativity. You will begin to look at everyday items in a whole new way.
