5 Tips For Creating A Fairy Garden


There’s something magical about fairy gardens. Even if you’ve never considered creating your own, you probably know a little bit about them. Maybe it’s the idea of building an entire landscape for tiny mythical creatures, or maybe, in part, it’s because they’re just so gosh darn cute! No matter what it is that draws you to these miniature gardens, there are a few things to keep in mind before starting your first project (or even your seventh).

Choosing plants that grow in your climate.

You’ll want to choose plants that grow in your climate, soil, water and light. This can be a little tricky because sometimes plants will grow in one location but not another. Here are some tips for choosing the right plants:

  • Choose plants that grow in your climate.
  • Choose plants that grow in your soil type (i.e., sandy, loamy or clay).
  • Choose plants that require less water than you currently have available to give them at any given time of year—it’s much easier to water once a week than every day during summer months when it’s really hot outside!
  • Select plants with similar light requirements as those found naturally growing within your region because they’re most likely going to survive better there too!

Creating a good base.

Creating a good base is the most important part of your fairy garden. A lot of people don’t consider this when they are creating their own fairy gardens, but it really is important! You want to choose a base that:

  • Is not too small or too large for your fairies to walk on comfortably
  • Is not too high or too low for them to fly from one side to another easily
  • Is not too light or dark, or hot or cold (if it’s outdoors)

If you create a bad base then the rest of your project will suffer as well. It’s always best to do this step first so that way you can see how everything else looks around it before moving forward with anything else!

Building houses and fixtures to fit your space and plants.

Building houses and fixtures to fit your space and plants.

Your fairy garden should be designed in such a way that it can be used by you, the family, and any visiting children or pets. In order for this to happen, you’ll need to make sure that everything is sturdy enough to hold up under use. Children can break anything if they are allowed access, so it is important that any structures are safe from them (and their pets). You also don’t want anything unsafe or unsightly happening when you’re not looking!

Leave room for growth: If you want some plants bigger than others in the future, leave plenty of room around them when building their homes. Otherwise, they may end up being crushed when other plants grow larger around them later on down the road — which wouldn’t look very pretty!

Accessories are key. Don’t forget the fairies!

It’s important to remember that fairies are the main characters of this story. They’re featured prominently in every garden, and their presence is what draws people back time and time again. The reason why people come up with ideas for their own fairy gardens is because they love fairies! Whether they’re playing with dolls or writing stories about them, fairies inspire creativity in all walks of life—and if you want to create a successful garden, you’ll need to take that into account when planning your space.

Finding inspiration by following others who have done it first.

Once you’ve decided on your theme and the materials with which you will build, it’s time to start thinking about what type of garden you want. This is where finding inspiration comes in handy! You can find inspiration from other people online who have already done this before and recorded their process so that others can follow along. There are many ways that one can find new ideas for their own fairy gardens:

  • Following blogs and social media accounts (Pinterest, Facebook)
  • Watching YouTube videos (YouTube)
  • Taking photos of other people’s projects while they work on them (Instagram)
  • Reading articles or watching educational videos written by experts who know what they’re talking about (Google) * Viewing images of gardens built by others on Tumblr

Make sure to follow these steps when creating your own fairy garden.

To create a perfect fairy garden, you’ll need to follow these steps.

  • Choose plants that grow in your climate.
  • Make sure you have a good base before you plant anything else, or else the plants won’t be able to get as big and healthy as they should be! And don’t forget to water them regularly so they can grow faster and stronger!
  • If you want to build houses or fixtures for your garden, make sure they fit the space of your garden perfectly – not too big or too small! You also need accessories like flowers, trees and more in order for this project to look complete (but don’t worry about getting those yet).
  • Finally: inspiration! Don’t forget about all those amazing pictures on Pinterest – this will help us understand how other people have done it first before making our own versions ourselves!”
