Fairy gardens can be as small as a teacup or soup cup.  This thrift store mug with a Spring time theme is the right size for a miniature house, girl and dog.   The Calico Kitten, Pork and Beans and mini Pine Trees are the perfect size.

You can also use items from your collectibles like this Pyrex dish that holds a Mermaid Fairy Garden.  I created this dish a few months ago and it’s still growing healthy.  It will probably last a full year before I replant the succulents in another container.

Bird cages are whether for real birds or for decorative purposes can be a home to Gnomes doing some Spring gardening.  Portulacaria Afra can be trained into trees and Crassula String of Buttons into bushes.  The bottom of the cage is lined with Sphagnum Moss and then filled with cactus soil.

Fountains, whether tiered or not, can be found at garden centers or thrift stores.  But, don’t limit them to just water.  Create a fairy garden city on multiple levels.

Fairy Garden castles are great if you only want to have the structure and not necessarily the fairies.  So many places to tuck in plants!

I have always wanted an old wheel barrel to plant up some annuals or perennials, but I think a fairy garden would fit just perfectly with them.  Add some flowering annuals around a fairy hut, maybe even a white picket fence for the veggie patch.

I’m not one to throw away old and broken terra cotta pots. I like to use them elsewhere in the garden, for drainage in bigger pots or in this case, for a tiered fairy garden.  This creation could be a farm or enchanted forestHens and Chicks succulents are perfect for this kind of pot because of their spreading habit.  If you don’t have any pots to use, they now sell planters that have this look and are easy to fill in with plants.

Want a little bit bigger farm?  How about using a nice wide galvanized tub and creating your own homestead with a barn, windmill and even silo.

Galvanized buckets and trays are so on trend right now, especially for Spring.  This tray can be a beautiful table centerpiece or on an entryway table.   Plant a spreading Ivy on an arbor or trellis for a courtyard look.  Adding a bench and stepping stones complete the garden.

This week I received some succulents from Mountain Crest Gardens and some of their fairy garden accessories.  I had a steamer from an earlier thrift haul that already had built in drainage.

The little tree house was the perfect size for this planter.  I added some stepping stones, a welcome sign and a couple of fairies to complete the look.

If you’d like to see a video of me creating this garden you can visit my YouTube channel.

The succulents were all in very good health and the perfect size to give them enough room to grow.  

The possibilities are endless!  If you’re wanting more inspiration for miniature  and fairy gardens, then  be sure to check out my Pinterest board.
