Spring Fairy Garden DIY Tutorial

Ah, fairy gardens! They can be made with living plants including flowers, moss, etc, or with faux (fake) mini trees, animals, fairies, grass, etc. This spring fairy garden DIY tutorial uses manufactured plants and decorations (fake). You could place this spring fairy garden outside for decor, or use the spring fairy garden on a table as part of a centerpiece. This is highly individual, so you are only bound by your own imagination. Spring was spelled out in the white mini stones, but you could spell out Easter, or eliminate a word entirely.

Instead of using a broken pot, the base of a 12″ Terra Cotta Flower Pot was used.

While I linked to materials below, I strongly suggest you head over to your local Michaels, Hobby Lobby or JoAnn’s to see and feel what you plan on using in your spring fairy garden. Your local Dollar Tree or Big Lots is an excellent source for glass stones and even filling sands.

Spring Fairy Garden Directions:

• Begin by applying a strip of paint in your choice of pastel color around the rim of the terra cotta saucer. If you wish you can color the entire saucer, however, once it is filled it may be hard to see the color, which is why this terra cotta saucer is just painted at the rim.
• Allow the paint to dry completely.

• Fill the terra cotta saucer approximately 2/3 of the way full with a filler such as white sand or white mini gravel.

• If you are looking to this tutorial as a guide for your miniature fairy garden accessories, place the pastel trees (bottle brush trees were used) along the back of the saucer. They are taller than the rest of the fairy garden items so you want them in the back so as not to obstruct any of the other fairy garden decor from view.
• Push down a bit so the trees remain upright.
• Place some small greenery pieces along the tree line to create shrubs.

• Assemble the dinette set. This is set up to look as if the chicks are having a little party. Place a chick to each chair and arranged the dinette set with some mini eggs and grass on top of the table.
• Push into your filler a bit so they remain upright.

• Take some wooden letter tiles or old Scrabble tiles and spell out a word of your choosing. This craft used “Spring”, but “Easter”, “Rebirth”, etc anything that is a has a springy connotation would work. Or, no tiles at all if you do not have them or care for them. If you are using tiles, arrange the tiles so the word(s) is spelled correctly and that the tiles are wedged into the filler allowing them to stand upright.
• Decorate around the tiles with some additional chicks, so it looks like they are hiding behind them or even assembling them.

• All these spring fairy garden accessories were left unglued so children can play and interact with this spring fairy garden. If you wish for it to be more of a display piece, you can use hot glue to glue the pieces in place.
