I have been wanting to do a fairy garden ever since I discovered them. Well this summer I finally got one put together. I had a small section of my yard that I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. I had planted mint there but the weeds are so bad that they just took over. So with the fairy garden I could put down a ground cover and not have to worry about the weeds. I have several pictures since it is a little larger then most.
I have a water fall fountain in one corner. The little cabin I got at an action, it was actually part of a pile that Andy had to buy to get the one thing he wanted. Score for me :). I used a lot of slik flowers to dress it up that way I don't have to worry about keeping them all watered.
OK I wasn't going to use this picture since it has a shadow, but it shows the middle way better ( disregard the bags of mulch to the side ). I did buy the fairy house on the left at Hobby Lobby when it was 50 % off. I also got a few accessory's and a few fairies (can't have a fairy garden with out fairies, right) to use. The barn I got from Wal-Mart it is a bird feeder but works for what I needed.
This is from the other end, I made a stream with blue aquarium gravel and lined it with rocks from the yard.
One more from the other end. Had to put the fencing up to keep the dogs out. Although the cats have found it so I have to go out every now and then and redo it.
It was so fun to make and it matches my Gnome garden in the front. The little kids love it
Do you have a fairy garden or want one?
