5 Tips For Amazing Fairy Garden

Although starting a fairy garden is a lot of fun, all the available choices for doing so can be overwhelming. With a little bit of planning and preparation, these 5 tips for a fairy garden will help you create an amazing miniature garden to enjoy.

So let’s get started!

1. Set Your Budget

First and most important is setting a budget. Otherwise, you might spend too much on fairy garden supplies and blow your financial situation all to pieces. Don’t think everything you see has to be in your garden, and consider the advantages of selecting a fairy garden kit with everything you need to start simple fairy garden.

With a set budget you will have a better idea how many and what types of fairy garden supplies to buy. Remember, you will need at least one or two miniature fairy figurines, plants and other accessories.

Honestly, some crafty gardeners have established simple fairy gardens with as little as $20 or $30. You can consider our very own Joykick Fairy Garden House Set as a great starting point for your fairy garden.

2. Choose Fairy Garden Theme

Choosing a theme for your fairy garden goes a long way in helping decide what should live there. Maybe you’d enjoy a Tuscan fairy garden or one with Gothic appeal.

On the other hand, maybe yours should be a conglomeration of a number of elements to complement your own personal eclectic style. No matter what theme you choose, be sure you can be happy with your choice.

Unless you’ve already thought about it, you might want to consider creating your fairy garden in a container to make it easier to enjoy indoors. (See the picture below for a simple example of this idea.)

There is no rule that says you cannot do that, so why not go for it even if you already have one in your outdoor garden. A fairy garden kit makes that easier too.

3. Select Suitable Accessories

Miniature fairies along with a fairy house and a few other ornaments are essential ingredients for any garden. However, there is more to creating a fairy garden than just buying miniature fairies.

You also want to select the appropriate plants, but before hitting the local nursery to pick some up, research to find those with similar growth requirements and which are best in your climate.

If you want to incorporate larger plants, place them as a background for your fairy garden to help it become a focal point and look more natural in its environment.

After that, dwarf or Bonsai trees add a nice touch by giving some dimension and height to your miniature garden.

4. Create Your Own Unique Designs

Accessorize your fairy garden with furniture. That could be furniture made with small twigs, grapevines, pods and leaves, or you could buy these from specialty stores, but there are easy ways of creating them yourself.

For instance, consider using polymer clay to fashion tiny birds, flowers, mushrooms or even a pond or two to add depth to your miniature garden.

All you need is an idea and the willingness to spend a little time creating your very own unique designs. You don’t need to be an artist either because with polymer clay it is easy to start over if needed.

Creating a pebble path is even easier (see the picture below). Just decide the type of pebbles you’d like to use and don’t forget that seashells make a nice addition to any fairy garden.

5. Give Your Fairies Enough Space

If you’ve decided to create a container fairy garden, choose a container with plenty of space for everything you want to include. Any extra space can be taken up by plants, but there is nothing wrong with giving your fairies a little room to stretch their wings.

You’ll also want to ensure that plant roots have plenty of room for growth, so you will want one with adequate depth to it. However, succulents don’t need that much depth.

Adding various textures to your miniature garden is another way of creating more interest and giving it a realistic appearance.

Rocks, grasses, moss and other natural elements can be added to satisfy this requirement, and starting with fairy garden furniture and accessories is a good place to start building on textures.

So, you see, it’s not hard at all! If you get yourself a fairy garden starter kit, follow our basic tips above, then you will be on your way in no time.
