Tips for Creating a Magical Fairy Garden

The first thing you want to do is determine the size of your outdoor fairy garden. Of course, that will be based upon the available space you have.

If you have a small garden consider using a terra cotta planter or other container garden. It’s a simple way to create a cute fairy garden.

Here are a few things to include:

  • If using a container garden you need good drainage. Be sure to add a few drainage holes.
  • Create a focal point by adding a fairy garden house.
  • Include miniature accessories to create a fun theme for your garden.
  • Add tiny plants and flowers. These can be real or faux plants.
  • Fairy lights or solar outdoor lights are a great touch.
  • Decorative items like a picket fence, small toys or even a water feature can really customize your garden.

Now that we’ve talked about some things to include, let’s get to these sweet fairy gardens. Hopefully, they will inspire you to add one to your garden space. Enjoy!
