If a fun little addition to your outdoor space is what you are looking for, then a craft project for you and your kids such as creating a fairy garden is the perfect idea.
But first, what is a fairy garden?
It is a miniature garden which consists of small landscapes filled with small plants and trinkets which is designed to “attract” fairies to your garden. It is actually pretty simple to get started as well as to customize the garden with special touches which is what makes this a truly magical experience.
Before beginning to create your own little fairy garden you need to find some creative ideas which will help you to come up with a design that you will feel comfortable with. It is also important to choose an area to work in which won’t be hurt by a little mess from the dirt and plants that you will be using. But perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind is to plan in advance where you want to display your fairy garden. This will also help you a little bit in the process of choosing the design.
When you are ready to start, you’ll need to find a flower pot or container. If you can’t find a good one, you can also use a broken pot which might even make it look more magical. Next, you’ll need to bring the soil in and place it in the pot according to the layout that you want to achieve.
Next up, you’ll have to head to your local greenhouse and look for some plants that can fit in your fairy garden that won’t grow too big as well as look fitting to your design. When the natural part is done, you might want to look for pre-made fairy accents or make your own. All you’ll need for this is a couple of creative ideas about what to use and how to place it. This includes miniature furniture, houses and tiny accessories that will make your fairy garden look as if a real fairy lives there. Enjoy!
