Here at The Magic Onions, we LOVE Fairy Gardens. It has become our annual tradition to make a new Fairy Garden each Spring. We have an AMAZING Fairy Garden Page… be sure to visit it later to see all the magical Fairy Gardens we have made over the years.
How To Make A Fairy Garden that children will Love
Before you enjoy this awesome tutorial,
Next, plan how you want your Fairy or Gnome Garden to look. Kitty drew a detailed map, indicating where she wanted a hill and a valley, were the pond would go and even where she wanted the path to be placed.
Earthworms are optional. They are great soil aerators and help for good soil drainage (plus, they give the little one something to do so that he doesn’t keep destroying the soil hill you have so carefully built…)
And then put all the little fairy and gnome bits and pieces in place…
A few fences and your Fairy Garden is complete!
Can you believe that we found all the above fairy furniture at various garage sales? If you have none, fret not as I am going to be showing you how to make fairy furniture over the next couple of weeks… a tiny table and chair, a fairy or gnome house and even an arbor. As we all know, things are much more magical and valued if we have made them ourselves!
I hope I’ve inspired you to make a Fairy Garden with your own little ones and enter it into our Fairy Garden Contest. Not only is it incredibly fun to make a miniature garden like this, but there are such AWESOME prizes to be won.
