Fairy garden ideas:
Craft time with your daughter is the best time. She had really been enjoying looking at all of the magical fairy accessories in Michaels, so a fairy garden sounded like the perfect project for us!
We opted for artificial plants for our first garden, but intend to make another with living plants soon.I can definitely say that we did not get extravagant with our garden.
There are so many fun miniature items to make a garden magical.

Individual items we added to our enchanted fairy garden:
We found a whimsical bed, covered with lace, vines (faux of course), and flowers. This was the item we built around. We found a tray that looked like it was made with vines that fit perfectly with the look we wanted.
The talking tree looked like a perfect addition.
And we can't forget the actual fairies!
Filler was added to give a little visual interest.
I intended the smallest fairy to sit on the bench. But, my daughter thought she looked better in the tree;-)
We got all of our items from Michael's, but Amazon has some great start-up fairy gardens.
Our goal is to find some natural materials and make another garden with soil, living plants, sticks, and pebbles. But, we wanted the weather to be a little warmer so we could keep that garden outside.
The ideas are endless.
Flat pebbles could be used for stepping stones. Driftwood could be glued together to form a bench. Jute string with twigs could be made into a fairy ladder hanging from a pot. We hope to expand on this in another post!
Once again, here is the after picture of our finished indoor fairy garden:
I'm sure my daughter will move the items around as she has fun playing with her new garden!
Have a great day!
