Simple Fairy Garden
The simplest of fairy gardens are doors placed against tree trunks, fencelines, or plant pots. This gives the illusion of fairies without creating a whole garden of tiny things to clean. The miniature broom and welcome sign add character. If you have regular visits from kids swap these out so they don’t get bored. How about a little pair of shoes or a tiny basket of acorns?

Fairy Garden Sign
Inject some magic into your fairy garden with a magical sign – gnomes, unicorns, and fairies were here! Little signs spread around the garden to create a treasure hunt is a cute way to entertain young and older guests. They could point the way to treasure at Halloween, Easter, and birthdays throughout the year.

Fairy Garden Plant Pot
The very best way to make use of a broken pot – a recycled fairy garden! Here we can see the broken sections have been repurposed to create areas that hold pot plants in place and create a winding pathway to the fairy house door. It’s portable and easy to clean too!

Fairy Garden Furniture
Here’s a lovely idea that makes a pretty and unusual piece of fairy garden furniture. It’s a sink created from a tower of pebbles and an upturned shell. So simple and so effective! You could use this in lots of ways such as a table, a bird bath, a reading lamp, a storage area for tiny books. The options are endless.

Fairy Garden Terrarium
Check out this inexpensive way to build a fairy garden in a terrarium. These cheap mason jars are just as good as a pricey terrarium and they still keep the dust off. Mason jars are made from tough stuff, so if your kid is playing with this they’re a safer bet. No-one likes to nag ‘be careful’ every few seconds and no kid will be able to keep their hands to themselves with these beauties.

Small Fairy Garden
A tinsy-tiny fairy garden in a teacup – could you find anything smaller! This small fairy garden is too cute for words and best of all you can take it anywhere you please. It would make a great gift – we love the ladybird that gives it a sense of scale.

Fairy Garden Craft
Craft this fairy garden from wood, moss, pebbles, and rose petals. It’s reminiscent of a hobbit hole but much tinier. Crafting a fairy garden is great fun and you can personalise it however you’d like. The majority of these crafting materials you could find on a walk so it’s low cost too and healthy for all the family.

Large Fairy Garden
If you’ve got a border where nothing will grow it makes sense to create a large fairy garden. The great thing about this is the blue stone river that pulls the separate areas together. Love the mini canoe ready for a day of fun and the old wooden crates adding interest too!
