If you’re looking to inject a little bit of magic in your garden, then look no further than having your very own whimsical fairy garden.

There’s something really special about the concept applied to a miniature garden.  After all, who doesn’t love the idea of mini fairies draped around the greenery?

If you’re looking for some of the ways you can create your own, then these fairy garden ideas are simply perfect.

How to create a fairy garden

Since your fairy garden is intended to lure actual fairies, you’ll want to create the feeling of a magical, miniature village.

Think structures and actual living plants; paths and houses; toadstools and enchanted accessories.

It makes for the perfect DIY project with the kids.

You will need:

  • A container that can hold both soil and water, such as a terra pot
  • Potting soil / moss
  • Small plants / pebbles
  • Fairy garden accessories
  • Garden trowel
