Fairy Gardens are perfect for spring, especially Easter!
Fairy gardens have really taken off the last few years. I remember when my kids were babies, was when I really started noticing fairy gardens all over the internet. First was the magical fairy door, an adorable mini door placed at the base of a tree or baseboard in the house. Little girls everywhere loved them and how could you not? It was adorable and anyone could do it.
Fast forward a few years and my little girls were introduced to fairies. My middle daughter has never been extremely girly but liked the idea of fairies. I myself, loved the adorable fairy products that were at the local craft stores. By using coupons I was able to snag a few fairy garden items for 50% off. I even found a fairy kit that included a table, bench and a few other odds and ends for only $14.99 at Home Depot!
For this fairy garden I used a lot of what I already had lying around the house and in the fairy box that I keep stored in our mudroom closet. Every spring I haul it out and girls will play for hours setting up little fairy scenes in the living room or even on the front porch. With Easter being this coming weekend, I thought it would be fitting to make a small fairy garden for the girls using what I had on hand. I grabbed a basket and some post offices boxes to make a base and got started!
Easter Fairy Gardens
- Place the small boxes inside the basket for extra height (optional).
- Cover the boxes with the preserved grass (the grass sheds so I suggest doing this over a hard floor or out on the porch where it can be easily swept up with a broom).
- Place the fairy figures where you would like them and allow the kids to 'decorate' the fairy garden.
That's it! I let my girls set up everything where they wanted after I laid the grass in the basket. They had a great time and played for at least an hour uninterrupted.
