How to Make a Fairy Garden
You are probably wondering what a fairy garden is and how to make a fairy garden, right? They are mini decorative gardens that are usually made in pots or other containers. Based on Celtic lore, fairy gardens are considered a place where fairies can come and live.
They usually consist of a combination of different plants and small fairy objects like houses, tiny chairs, pathways, and bridges. You can either make fairy garden accessories on your own or even buy them online or at your local garden shop.
To help you decide what kind of fairy garden you would like to build in your yard, we’ve rounded up a mix of unique fairy garden ideas, kid-friendly fairy gardens, and fun fairy garden accessories. Take a look below!
