You don’t have to be a child under 10 to believe in fairies you know. It’s always nice to believe in something! One way you can make believe, is by turning your garden into a gorgeous little fairy garden. This will make it somewhere you absolutely love to spend time, and if you have little ones, they’ll fall in love with it too. Here’s how to make your garden a fairy garden:
Create A Fairy House
If you’re going to create a realistic looking fairy garden, you need a fairy house. They can’t just sleep on the leaves and in the branches, you know! You can get really creative with your fairy house. Perhaps you could make them their very own miniature Teepee, or a house made out of a wooden log. You could potentially also make a house out of clay if you’re feeling crafty. Some people like to have one large fairy house, but you may choose to have a few smaller ones depending on the size of your garden and how you’d like it to turn out!
Include An Amazing Water Feature
All fairy gardens need a water feature. It’s where the fairies bathe and play, plus, they also look incredible and add a sort of tranquil feel to the garden. This also depends on how much you’d like to spend and what you’d like your garden to look like. If you can afford a pond, even a tiny one, that’s going to give a truly magical feel to the space. Just make sure you take maintenance into account too, as that will need to be regular enough to keep your pond clean. You can clean your pond with one of these pond vacs to make the job super simple. Also, bear in mind that young children will always need to be supervised around a pond, as it only takes a second with your back turned for accidents to happen.
If you’d rather not get a pond, then a simple water fountain or bird bath will work nicely.
Accessorize Your Fairy Garden
Remember to accessorize your fairy garden. You could let your kids create fun little signs out of lollipop sticks. They’ll love that they’ve helped to create this magical space! You could also add wind chimes, dream catchers, painted stones, and anything else you feel will make your fairy garden look awesome. Fairy lights not only have a very suitable name, they’ll bring extra enchantment to your garden when the sun goes down.
Focus On The Tiny Details
Remember to focus on even the tiny details to make your fairy garden extra special. You can find cute little doors that you place on the bottom of trees and stumps; this makes it look like fairies live inside!
Remember; it’s unlikely your fairies live alone. This is why using different accessories, like garden gnomes, trolls, frogs, and birds is a good idea too.
So, do you believe in fairies? You will when you’ve created this magical garden!
