Love all things fairies? So do we!
Design a gorgeous place for the fairies in your garden with these fun ideas, and learn how to create a fabulous fairy garden that's small, sweet and magical with this super easy DIY!
It's that time of year when the days are longer, the sun shines, and big, fluffy clouds drift across the sky- A-K-A the perfect time of year to plant some blossoms, and make a fairy garden!
Making your own fairy garden is such a lovely way to add a little magic and sparkle to your garden!
We've always dedicated some of our garden in our backyard to the fairy houses as well as some special blooms to accompany the fairy furnishings!
Not sure where to begin when making your own garden for the pixies? It's simple! First, find where you want your fairy garden to be.
It can be displayed in the middle of your garden, or tucked away as a special surprise in a planter on the porch! You decide!
Just one of the many fabulous things about fairy gardens is that they don't require a lot of space, so you can create a magical spot whether you live somewhere with a few window box flower arrangements, or have a larger yard to put to use!
Next step? Decide what kind of a theme you would like your fairy garden to have! Here are some ideas!
Fairy Garden Ideas and Themes
1. Go Green!
Use greenery and natural materials- like a fairy house made of sticks, flower petals and leaves, and accessories including stones and shells, along with flowers of choice!
2. Petite and Sweet
Add small flowering plants such as pansies or vinca along with fairy house cottages, mini animals, accessories and pebbles, small shells or glass stones - personalize as you go along!
3. Rainbow Fairies
Multicolored blooms, painted rocks, colorful fairy houses and furniture make a perfect theme to add a pop of color to your garden!
4. Seaside Garden
A small ceramic dish with water for a 'lake', shells, sea glass, and small dolphin or whale figurines- or add some rubber ducks or a mermaid for a fun touch!
5. Fairy Village
Put in lots of fairy garden houses, fairy figurines, maybe a gnome or two and benches or a pathway to suggest a busy town!
The amazing example above was made by a neighbor who always has the most stunning, unique, and wonderful fairy garden and houses!
Her creations for the fairies never fail to wow all who stop to admire her work!
6. Retro and Whimsical!
Got a lot of things you want to use in your fairy garden? Make a theme out of those little odds and ends!
Rubber ducks, small toys, a mini camper, and whatever else looks fun that you have on hand!
Give it a retro vibe with mini matchbox cars and vintage-inspired fairy furniture!
6. Enchanted Forest!
Use plenty of vines or greenery, succulents, and/or 'bushes' (little clusters of flowers), a unicorn, gnome, owl or a fairy door would also be great for this theme!
Bark, moss, and a magical saying like this one would work great with an Enchanted Forest Fairy Garden!
...Or, create your own fabulous theme!
Sometimes the best ideas spring up in unexpected places!
Dream up several designs, use what you have, or enjoy splurging on a fairy house or two to refresh your fairy's 'habitat'!
Next steps? Get busy!
Mark out where you want your fairy garden and plant the flowers, add cottages, and bring your fairy's dream home to life!
