F is for Fairy Garden and Other Fairy Resources

Pin It Now!

My daughter and I have lots of fun fairy memories, so when I saw these fairy garden ideas on Pinterest, I knew I had to make an outdoor fairy garden for her! (Actually, I let her design it, but I helped plant the flowers and wild flower seeds.)



Of course we had to use what we had on hand, so I used a drawer from a free dresser and leftover items from the Wee Enchanted Fairy Garden (indoor) my daughter received for her 5th birthday. Such a great gift - so glad I didn't get rid of the fairy items when we moved!! Now they are being put to good use again.

The green flower and orange butterfly are leftover garden party birthday decorations from my daughter's 6th birthday. They're from Hobby Lobby.

The only things I bought for the fairy garden were:
  •  soil
  • alyssum
  • wild flower seeds. 


When my mom found out her granddaughter had a fairy garden, she gave her some decorations from her Easter village to use. I think they're fairy perfect!

I love this! I've got awhile to wait before my girl is ready for a fairy garden...I wonder if I could do a "boy" version for my 3 and 6 year old boys!

Awesome! I would love to make one of those.

Your daughter would LOVE Herb Fairies! They are not accepting members right now .. it will be next spring ... but it's something to keep in mind! We read a great chapter book, find the herb in the wild (or hopefully next year from our herb garden we are planting), do activities, puzzles, make medicinal remedies and foods, color fairy pages, etc. It's so much fun!
