This past spring, I visited Tonkadale Nursery for many weekend workshops. They have an amazing Fairy Garden setup in their store. Here are a few inspiring vignettes to consider.
Here’s a little lawn golf for the fairies complete with benches for spectators.
I loved the little hand sewn burlap bags for the fairies to sell their wares in. Very cute and easy to make.
These little pots are available at Michael’s Craft store and you can fill them with any variety of items.
Tying ribbon around a stick to make a Maypole is a genius idea. It gives the fairies something to do. Fairies in action are more interesting to observe.
Paths make your fairy land more interesting. Here they used some prefab steps to add vertical interest to the path.
I love these little burlap pillows. So cute!
I have many of these iron items for my fairy garden and they can get lost in the plant material. Wrapping them with ribbon helps them stand out. Here’s another idea with the ribbon.
Finally, I love how they used twigs to create a backdrop for their fairyland. A simple idea to define your fairy area from the rest of your garden.
My friend, Jen, will be joining me this fall to explain the therapeutic value and meanings behind fairy gardening. In the meantime, have fun creating your own fairy gardens.
