Designing an Indoor Fairy Garden – Step-by-Step Tutorial

Designing an Indoor Fairy Garden Reclaimed wood box plantersWhimsical fairy gardens are not limited to summertime gardens, but can easily be brought indoors and even given a winter theme. Young and old find fairy gardens enchanting and charming, and having a small garden to tend during the cold months is more fun when it has a bit of whimsy. Let imagination run free to create a tiny garden that can be tucked into any corner.

With just a few supplies, creativity and time, it is possible to have a fairy garden sprouting and thriving in just a couple weeks. The trick is to make it look natural, using things that might already be found in the wild alongside trinkets that fairies would stumble upon and drag back home.

Your fairy garden is going to need a home. Anything that is natural looking, cast off, reclaimed or weathered should be your first choice. Reclaimed boxes, like this reclaimed barn wood planter box is ideal and fits well outdoors and indoors.

In addition, a living indoor garden is going to require a healthy potting soil to get your garden growing and keep it thriving.

FAIRY GARDEN HOUSE

Your fairies will need a home to come back to every night, and the kind of home you give them is up to you. Anything from overturned teacups to tiny birdhouses to earthen mounds can be used to create the tiny dwellings the rest of your garden will be designed around.Designing an Indoor Fairy Garden Mushroom House Figurine cation.

You can also create your own growing fairy house using seed grass and porous materials, like sponges. Children will love watching their garden and houses grow using these instructions to create a little grass house.

FLOWERS AND LANDSCAPING

Just like a regular garden, you need to add plants, flowers and landscaping to create an entire space. Use Miniature Fairy Garden Mini River Rocks to help you create paths, dry creek beds and a foundation for your fairy house.

Dainty flowers that stay low to the ground, provide color, interesting texture and fragrance should be your first option. Seed grass is a great choice, but don’t discount herbs like lemon thyme and a groundcover like creeping phlox. A single hens and chicks plant can also add a lot of interest to a fairy garden. Look over the nursery choices you have available to you, but don’t overlook herbs and plants that you can find in the grocery store, or seeds that can be sowed. Whatever plants you select, make sure they can survive in the indoor conditions you will be keeping them in.
