My Fairy Garden

Build Your own Fairy Garden

Although I can build a gate (Like how I worked that in? Really you should check it out if you haven’t already), I am a girly girl at heart. Growing up, I always loved playing with my barbies and setting up the house; rearranging the furniture. I think God knew what he was doing when he gave me boys though, because I would not be very good at sharing my barbies! (I’m serious.)

Growing up, I had my favorite. She had longer hair than normal (that’s probably why she was my favorite, I had Dorothy Hamill hair), but she was split from the neck hole to her chin, so I had to hold her head on when I brushed her hair. I super glued my fingers together so many times trying to repair her.

Noone was allowed to play with her but me! (Who would want to when her head kept falling off, right?)

Ok so let me get to the point.

I saw the cutest fairy garden on pinterest several months ago and I have wanted one ever since! It was created by Michelle at Burghbaby for her daughter.  It’s a fun read:)

I think it’s the little barbie-loving girl in me that loves it so much.  I have this fascination with little houses, little furniture; it really sparks my imagination.

Every Christmas I can’t wait to set up my Christmas Village. You can see some of it here. It takes up a six foot table. Again it’s the little girl in me, I guess.

I finally made a little fairy garden of my very own and I am so excited to share it with you:

I have purples, yellows, and whites in my big garden, so I did the same here.

The house was just a plain unfinished birdhouse I found at AC Moore:

And after a little fairy paint:

Fairy House

It’s so cute!! Right?? The door and shutters are made from popsicle sticks.

The chairs are a tiny bit big, but I love them anyway.  Here they are unfinished:

So adorable!

Looks like someone’s been working in the garden:

The only downside about putting together a fairy garden is that it will need to be cut back regularly to maintain it’s size.  There are very few plants out there that are ideal for something like this.

I used some “stepables” meant for the cracks of pathways and such. Hopefully they won’t get too big. Here is everything I used:

I kept mine really simple since my container isn’t very big.

Can you tell how much fun I had putting this together? I want to go lounge in one of those chairs with an ice cold lemonade and enjoy my garden!

This would be a great Mother’s Day gift! (A special mama in my life may or may not be getting one of these…shhhh…)

I hope all you mama’s out there have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

XO,

Update: Mom-in-Law got one of these for Mother’s day and she loved it!!  She has a huge front porch and a beautiful home  that they had built. You can see more of their horse farm here.
