What is a Fairy Garden?
A fairy garden is a miniature garden made with small plants and flowers and minature structures. These DIY Fairy gardens can contain tiny houses, and all kinds of magical items for a fairy to live.
To make a great fairy garden, one trip to the the craft store, ,garden center and and or dollar tree and you will be set.
What You Need
I’ve decided to also add a walk through version here as well in the case you missed anything on the video. Here is how you make it:
Fairy Garden Supplies:
- Bucket, clay pots, bowl, flower pot, terra cotta pot, or wide mouth pot – Like this one
- Small Plants
- Rocks or floral marbles
- Fairy House
- Floral decorations (birds, butterflies, mushrooms, etc.)
How to Make a Fairy Garden
Start by making sure there are holes in the bottom of your bowl. If there are no holes, then use a drill and drill two small holes.
Next, fill the bucket with soil. Leave some room on the top for the garden decorations. You never want to fill to the very top so that your water doesn’t overflow from the top.
Plant the flowers around the bucket. I love the idea of a slightly larger one in the back and then flowers around the that, but really it is however the kids want to make it.
Next have the kids place all their decorations around the bucket.
Last step is to add the rocks or marbles around the flowers and decoration.
Viola! Fairy Gardens!
HAPPY GARDEN MAKING!
