How to Make a Fairy Garden

A fairy garden is one of those things that can whisk you away into a magical place and put a smile on everyone’s face! Here’s how to make a fairy garden.


  • Large planter
  • Plants and succulents
  • Potting soil
  • Various sized rocks and pebbles
  • Moss and twigs (to cover potting soil)
  • Wooden birdhouse
  • Small objects to use as embellishments in the garden


To start, fill the planter with potting soil, and secure plants inside. We suggest placing the biggest plant in the middle and surrounding it will the smaller plants and the tiny house. Finishing the landscaping with rocks, sand, and moss creates the cutest little scene and really takes it to the next level. The craft store has super cute mini items to add to your garden, but bonus points if you can find items around the house to repurpose as furniture! We love this because you can also use it as decor and can continue to admire it day to day. DISCLAIMER: Fairies are very busy and will not maintain their own shrubbery, so we suggest looking into how to care for the plants you select so that they can stand the test of time. Enjoy!
