A good starting place is to create a tiny garden for your fairy friends. All you need is a large container or plant pot. Fill it with soil and decorate with a miniature house, small plants, pebbles and tiny fences. You can include anything you like in your miniature garden, we love adding colourful garden stones for an extra magical touch. Here are some suggestions.

Place tiny front doors on tree trunks to act as doorways for fairies. You can make the front doors out of small pieces of wood or draw them onto the tree.

Decorate plants pots in bright colours to add extra magic to your fairy garden

Add colour and magic to your fairy garden by planting flowers in colourful plant pots. You can use planters in all shapes and sizes. We love transforming teapots and teacups into miniature planters; they’re the perfect addition to any fairy garden. You could even purchase plain terracotta plant pots and get your little ones to decorate them for an extra personal touch.

To add extra fairy sparkle to your garden, hang outdoor lights along a garden fence or in a tree. We especially love solar panel fairy lights, as they don’t need to be plugged into the mains making them perfect for the garden.
