I have always been enamored by the magical appearance of fairy gardens. Lately, they seem to be very popular among families, and I’m amazed at the creativity of the people creating them. Although I don’t really have the right place at my home for a fairy garden, after seeing all of these adorable projects, I might have to look again.
I adore the idea of propagating succulents to create tiny plants inside thimbles. These colorful vintage pieces make adorable planters to add to your own fairy greenhouse.
Magical Clay Toadstools – Fairy Gardens
These little mushrooms make a colorful addition to any fairy garden. I’m not sure what it is about toadstools like these, but they definitely do add a magic quality to an ordinary garden.
Fairies for Tea – Twig & Toadstool
This is the perfect tea set for a fairy garden. I love the natural and imperfect quality of the acorns, and these would look so cute set up on a tiny table.
Miniature Garden Path – Beneath the Ferns
If making a mosaic garden path for your own life-size garden is a little daunting, this is a great way to get some practice in and create a lovely and eye catching element to your fairy garden.
Fairy Umbrellas – Homespun Hydrangea
This is a quick, easy, and inexpensive craft that a child can manage on their own. This would be so adorable with some “sunning” fairies or to help shade a picnic table.
