Tips for your fairy garden


Do you believe in fairies? Whether you do or not, a fairy garden can be a fun project, especially for kids. But it’s also easy to make a fairy garden look amateurish. Follow these tips from gardening experts to make sure your fairy garden is something all the neighbors will envy!

Determine a theme for your garden.

You might have a theme in mind already, or you might be looking for ideas. Here are some things to consider when choosing a theme:

  • What kinds of activities do you like to do? Is it gardening, painting, drawing? Does your child like to play games or read stories?
  • Is there something special about the location where your garden will be placed (e.g., it’s near a river or lake)?
  • Do you want to use plants that are native to your region and/or easy to grow here? If so, choose an appropriate theme based on what grows well in that area!

Select a container for your garden.

Now that you’ve chosen where to put your fairy garden, it’s time to choose which container to use for it.

  • Select a container that is a good size for the fairy garden. The container should be large enough to accommodate all of the features you have in mind and still give room around them so that they don’t overlap. If there isn’t enough space between each feature, they’ll look crowded and take up too much room in your fairy garden.
  • Choose an easy-to-move container if possible. If the weight of the soil or other materials makes it difficult for one person alone (or two people with small children) then consider using something lighter than dirt or another type of loose material like sand or pebbles instead because these will be easier on children’s arms when they’re moving them around later on down the line! Or try using an old plastic storage tub instead – those are perfect! Just make sure whatever choice ultimately makes sense here since it’ll affect both their enjoyment levels as well as yours out there!

Choose plants for your garden.

Choose plants for your garden.

Once you have a theme, choose plants that are hardy in your area. Some people make the mistake of buying plants that look good during the summer or fall, but then freeze during winter. Others pay attention to which plants take the most sunlight or thrive at a certain elevation, but don’t think about whether their chosen plant is appropriate for growing in their climate zone or how much water it needs.

Choose easy-to-care-for plants if you’re not an experienced gardener. If you have no experience with gardening, focus on choosing simple, low maintenance options such as succulents and cacti since they require little maintenance beyond watering them occasionally and removing dead leaves once in awhile (if needed).

Build fairy houses and other structures.

The next step is to build a structure for your fairies to live in. Here are some tips to help you make sure it’s just the right size, shape, and style:

  • The structure should be stable. If a fairy falls off the roof of your house, she will die! The last thing you want is for her body to decompose on your floor—it will stink up the whole room and get all over everything. So make sure she can’t fall off or get hurt when playing around in there!
  • Make it out of different materials. This way they’ll have something fun to look at while they’re hanging out inside their home instead of being bored all day long by only seeing one type of material all over again! Do this especially if it looks like someone made yours out of cardboard boxes because they didn’t know any better (this happens sometimes). You’ll want them happy so that they stay around longer too if possible – don’t let their happiness go down because no one cares about making things look nice anymore like we used too much back then when everything was still shiny and new back then before everything changed forever with those stupid machines that keep turning everything into plastic now days where nobody cares about anything anymore except money which nobody has anymore either from spending so much time worrying about how much money they need instead having fun doing things together with friends which is why we stopped doing this stuff in order not waste money anymore but wasted more than ever anyways since we had no choice but spent lots more time everywhere else besides our homes because nobody wanted stuff like kitchens anymore either after cooking became obsolete due to food coming pre-made from factories which makes sense because eating isn’t very important anyway except when hungry so eat less meat sandwiches or hot dogs whatever works best for everyone involved just keep thinking ahead please don’t forget yourself again tomorrow morning though remember what happened today

Add fairies, furniture and other decorations.

Once the garden is complete and ready to go, you can add fairies. Fairies should be the main focus of your fairy garden, but it’s also fun to add other decorations like furniture and other items that can make your garden more interesting. Fairies can be made from a variety of materials in multiple sizes and colors. You could even use some old clothing or fabric to create them yourself!

Fairies are easy to find online or at thrift stores, so you don’t have to worry about spending a lot of money on them. But if you want something unique and special for your garden then consider making your own fairies out of clay, paper mache’ or recycled objects such as Styrofoam cups!

Making a fairy garden is fun, but there are several easy steps to follow to make sure it looks as good as you want it to.

Making a fairy garden is fun, but there are several easy steps to follow to make sure it looks as good as you want it to.

  • Make sure you have the right tools and materials for the job. You will need:
  • A container for your garden (a pot or jar)
  • Plants and flowers that grow in shade or partial sunlight, like mosses, violets and creeping thyme
  • Rocks or stones of varying sizes scattered throughout the container can be used to add texture and interest in a small area; they also help keep plants rooted down so they don’t fall over when sitting on top of them. I would recommend using plastic rocks rather than real ones because they’re lighter weight and won’t break apart after being moved around multiple times during planting/decorating sessions! My favorite place for cheap finds is Dollar Tree stores where I’ve found everything from fake Christmas trees ($5/each) all kinds of decorations including glass figurines ($1-$3). Of course if these options aren’t available near where you live then head out somewhere else that sells crafting supplies such as Michael’s Craft Store or JoAnn Fabric & Craft Stores.”


I hope this has given you some good information on how to get started with your fairy garden. It doesn’t have to be hard, just follow these steps and you’ll be able to create a magical world that can transport you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Whether it’s a relaxing hobby or an artistic outlet, I think everyone should try their hand at making one of these little havens for fairies.
