When I was at Creativation this year, I noticed that craft supply companies are getting in on the fairy garden trend. There are still plenty of those products that haven’t hit the market yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find wonderful elements for your fairy gardens right now. These are some of the elements you might like to include when you are building your own fairy garden.
I have used a HANGING GLASS TERRARIUM like this one to create a little gnome home terrarium. If you are just starting out or have a small budget, this glass globe is a great base for a small fairy garden.
If you want a larger fairy terrarium, Consumer Crafts sells larger containers like this adorable SMALL TERRARIUM HOUSE. You can plant real succulents inside, add your fairy garden elements, and display it near a window to enjoy year round.
If you are putting together an outdoor fairy garden, you will have the space for all kinds of fun features. I love the idea of FAIRY GARDEN BUILDINGS that light up at night. How magical would it be to stumble across one of these in a flower bed?
There is no end to the darling FAIRY GARDEN ACCESSORIES you can buy to flesh out your fairy garden world. I am a sucker for campfires, so this piece spoke to me, but you can choose from swings, gardening equipment, benches and more.
Some people choose to leave their fairy gardens unpopulated to preserve the idea that the fairies only show up when you aren’t around. I personally love gnomes too much to miss out on an opportunity to incorporate some GNOME FIGURES in the fairy garden.
Even with my black thumb, I have managed to keep real succulents alive, but I know that tending to a mini garden isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. You can find a wide range of realistic-looking FAUX SUCCULENTS to plant in your fairy garden.
Even if you don’t have light-up fairy houses in your garden, you can add in some rainproof FAIRY LIGHTS for some magical twinkle. I used similar lights in my firefly mason jars, so you can see how pretty they really are.
As you get more and more interested in your fairy garden (and trust me the rabbit hole is DEEP), you might find that you want to add some DOLLHOUSE MINIATURES to the fairy garden. The world of miniatures is even more detailed than the fairy garden miniatures world, so you can find just about anything you would like to add to your little world in miniature size.
Let's be buds.
