As the weather is brightening up our thoughts are turning to outside projects. One thing that never fails to capture my imagination are all of the beautiful Fairy Gardens that you see springing up across the internet. These are not only very creative but suit fair sized gardens and small. I’ve also seen them inside!
What is a Fairy Garden?
Beautiful miniature gardens that are created in a container or flower pot. You can use almost anything for the base, in some cases it can even be broken. Small plants are added along with decorations and ornaments to create a small world. Let your imagination run wild!
If you need houses and props for your Fairy Garden don’t forget to check out all of the beautiful options on ETSY
Scale is all important for your garden so if you need a little help to choose the perfect plants. Better Homes and Gardens has a wonderful list of plants that are great to use.
Broken Pot Fairy Gardens
These are a fabulous idea to make use of any broken garden pots. We all have them lying around don’t we. Instead of just throwing them out, why not create a beautiful, magical world in miniature?
You can let your imagination run wild and make them as fantastical as you like.

You’ve found your plants and stones etc. But unless you want to liberate the furniture from your daughters dolls house you may be a bit short of props to give your freshly created miniature world that lived in feeling. Well we can help you there!
