Create an Enchanted Teacup Fairy Garden in Minutes

I love the fairy garden trend! I’m a huge kid myself plus I’d rather be outdoors than indoors, so little enchanted gardens like this one make me giddy. Hi! I’m Kim Byers of The Celebration Shoppe and I’m going to show you how to create a lovely teacup fairy home in a small planter.

Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores has so many pretty fairy garden accessories from fairy houses, to fairy table and chairs, to mini trees, to Cinderella-ish carriages, to garden fences. It’s all in the floral section.

For the fairy home, there are some darling ones, but I really wanted to create a teacup fairy garden so I chose a teapot bird feeder to serve as my fairy abode. Once I chose the house, I selected items that were to scale for my feeder. The carriage was the first item I had to have and then I saw the swing. And these are just a small sample of all JoAnn has to offer.

You’ll need a few things from JoAnn:
Teacup or teapot bird feeder
Flower pot
Fairy accessories
Pea gravel or small rocks
Moss
Paper trimmer
Fine point pen
• Floral rod to hang above

Other items:
• Potting soil
• Mini flowers, preferably vines
• White sheet paper

Easy steps:

1. Pot the plants leaving half of the space in the planter open.
2. Insert floral rod and hang teapot bird feeder.
3. Using pea gravel and moss, decorate some areas of the garden.
4. Insert fairy décor, like the carriage, swing, etc.
5. Create mini accessories. You want to make your fairy abode a home! {wink}

Want to make your fairy a little book?

It’s so easy! Just cut a ½’ wide strip of paper, and then cut it into 1 inch segments. Stack, fold, and write on the mini book!

I have a spot on my porch with a lovely white bench and lots of blooming flowers. I like to sit in this spot and read or watch my boys play. This darling little fairy world is the perfect addition for my favorite summer spot.

Looking for more creative ideas, maybe a Mother’s Day tea party? Or a Mother’s Day brunch in soft pinks and bright yellows? I’d love for you to visit me at The Celebration Shoppe!

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate with JoAnn!
