No Maintenance Fairy Garden

Ella and I had so much fun making this fairy garden the other day. In normal "Bethany" manner I decided one morning that we were going to make one, we packed up and took a trip to Hobby Lobby and picked out our supplies. It was so much fun and I think every little girl needs one!



Here's what you'll need to make your own.

Large Pot (some people just pick an old stump or the base of a big tree)



Potting Soil

Faux Plants (we used succulents we found in the clearance section and they were $1 each)

  


Decor Moss


Doll Furniture (find a ton at Hobby Lobby!)


I found this unfinished fence and stained it to match the well.




Small, Flat Stones

Faux Flowers

Imagination

Step 1: Fill your pot with the soil.
Step 2: Choose your layout.
Step 3: Add a large rock and cover with soil for an added "hill".
Step 4: Get to work!





This was so incredibly easy to put together. Literally Ella did it! She chose where she wanted the succulents, and flowers and I just took charge of placing the moss where is needed to go. I just ripped pieces off and placed them where they belonged.

I love that it looks so real and yet, it is totally fake. Every aspect of this garden is faux and will take no maintenance!

I love looking at fairy gardens on Pinterest. I really would like to make one, but I have a feeling I would just get frustrated because mine would not turn out "Pinterest" worthy!

I adore this!! I am a huge Tinker Bell fan and I might need to add on of these to my entrance way.

So cute! We've been doing fairy gardens for a few years now. We have 3 similar to this inside. Kiddo, 9, is very much into her fairies. We have books, kits, homes and so many other fairy related items I can't keep up. There is a little shop down the road that carries these fairy gardens and supplies. You can buy each piece or purchase a kit. Hobby Lobby is far from here, but judging from your garden, might be worth a trip!
