Are you guys loving the Fairy Garden trend? I’m assuming that since you clicked over to this post, you must be at least a little interested in it! I’ve seen some super cute Fairy Garden Ideas out there and knew my little girl would love her own Fairy Garden so decided to try my hand at it. Because this would be going into her room, I decided to take a different approach and create it in an unusual fairy garden container that could be placed onto a flower pot. So what did we end up using? A grapevine sphere! This miniature fairy garden is fairly inexpensive to create and really has such a magical look to it. Once we put it in my daughters room she asked if we could leave her window open so that a real garden fairy could come and visit. I think my heart melted a little. I love the innocence of youth! In fact, she recently lost a tooth, and ended up putting her tooth next to her Fairy Garden to entice the Tooth Fairy to stay! Although she did not awake to find the Tooth Fairy swinging in the garden, she DID find a note from good ole TF saying that she enjoyed using the swing!
Let’s get started, shall we?
Cut an opening in the grapevine ball. This will be the entrance to the fairy garden.
Add in your fairy garden accessories. The swing I used is a tad big for the 8″ sphere so if you’re considering using it, I’d suggest going up a size or two on the ball. It does fit, but limit’s the amount of other accessories that can fit into the space. I used a dab of hot glue on the back of the stepping stones and blue gems to keep them in place.
For the base of the Miniature Fairy Garden, I created a Fairy Home using a flower pot. I saw the Fairy Garden Planter idea on Consumer Crafts and knew it would be the perfect base for our Fairy Garden Sphere!
Here’s a few more shots of our creation:
