FAIRY GARDENS – JANUARY 2017
Spark their imagination and bring your backyard to life with a fairy garden. These miniature worlds filled with whimsical wonder are highly popular and plenty of stores sell fairy garden accessories.
Here’s a few ideas to consider when planning your fairy garden.
Space and Shelter
Opt for an area that won’t get damaged by wet weather (or pets). A planter is a good choice but you can also use a large bowl as the base for your garden (this is especially handy if you want to move the garden in the future).
Your fairies need a place to sleep and fairy cottages are elegant to say the least.
Help your fairies navigate through their forest with signs that sparkle and glow. You can purchase these or make your own using paddle pop sticks, glitter and a Sharpie pen.
In addition to a few signs, add fairy lights or miniature Christmas baubles around the garden for extra lighting. Fairies are known to come out mostly at night, after all.
Create pathways for your fairies to walk along with dirt, stones and little bridges to cross over. Fairies are known to love colour so you may want to include a few painted rocks or coloured pebbles to help brighten their world.
Plants and a Pond
Fairies also love greenery so add some plant life to your garden. Ferns are especially popular and little mushrooms placed underneath make for the perfect sitting area for little creatures. Give the fairies a place to cool down with their very own pond with rocks around the edges.
