Making you own fairy garden is super fun and a great way to interact with your kids!

I have a love for anything miniature. If I see something that is a small replica of anything I freak out. That is why I love American Girl stuff and anything fairy garden related. I frequent Joann Fabric and Hobby Lobby at least once a week. I also frequent local thrift stores and our Goodwill like nobody’s business. I am always keeping my eyes peeled for mini items perfect for fairy gardens or our growing American Girl collection.

Last summer, I decided to take the plunge and finally make a fairy garden with my girls. My head started swirling with tons of fun ideas. I grew up on a rural farm and my parents are quasi-hoarders. Our old barn is filled with treasures and I immediately knew I wanted to use old galvanized tin wash buckets sitting in the front of the barn. Next, I needed some sort of ‘grass’. Because I frequent craft stores I stopped into Joann Fabric and checked out the floral area where I found faux grass, perfect for the fairy garden. I also needed some pebbles so I headed over to Home Depot across the parking lot and grabbed a 1/2 off 50lb bag of pebbles for $2 (my husband utilized what I didn’t need). Lastly I headed down to our local Dollar Tree, grabbing flat blue stones for ‘water’ and the girls picked out a table and chairs that we ended up painting for our fairies. We had a few fairy items at home already, including a fun camper birdhouse that I picked up at Rite Aid for half off (Rite Aid has the cutest birdhouses by the way and they are 50% off every week during the spring and summer)!

Materials:

Directions:

  1. Fill your container(s) with dirt or filler material. I saved a few empty gallon milk jugs and placed them in the bottom of the my buckets, that way I wasn’t filling it entirely with dirt.
  2. Stack your containers if making a tower and cover the dirt with grass.
  3. Decorate as you wish. Once we had the grass in place I let the girls decorate the fairy garden how they wanted with all the goodies we had collected. They had a blast! Even my son joined in the action.
