Princess Fairy Miniature Gardening
If you have a little girl who loves to make new and exciting things then miniature fairy gardens are the ideal hobby for you and her to spend some special mummy-daughter time together. Miniature fairy garden building brings craft elements together with inventiveness and a keen eye for detail. Your finished product will not only provide the garden with a splash of colour, but helps to develop your child’s fine motor skills from a very young age and they are so easy to do!
The basic structure of a fairy garden starts out the same. The accessories including the larger fairy houses can be added straight to pebbles, soil or gravel. (Ensure that there is a good drainage system in place before you start planning out your fairy garden to ensure that pooling of water does not occur and any miniature plants that you choose to add to your planter have healthy access to water.) Once you have your fairy garden furniture and house in the desired position, moss can be added to surround the base with low growing ground cover.
We have created a fairy princess village in pink to show just how easy it can be done. Using a variety of different fairy accessories, we have created a simple yet very effective miniature airy garden which adds a sense of charm, mystery and magic to your garden. The Fairy furniture is designed for outdoor use and will provide long lasting enjoyment, however we do recommend that you spray (and respray) them with a protective coat of polyurethane water seal to prevent them from over exposure to the sun, wind and rain. The protective coat will ensure that their vibrant colours will last the extreme weather conditions brought by the hot summer months and the colder winter season. To start with we chose to layer the base of the container with a mixture of moss and cream river stones to create some contrast in colour and texture. The moss brought a real earthy feel to the garden and provides a striking distinction against the pink tones used in the design. Next we used some pink micro gravel to create an enchanting pathway to lead to princess fairy’s home. We incorporated a variety of different miniature fairy accessories into the design of the garden, all of which can be found on our fairy accessories collection on the website (LINK) and what’s more – they can be interchanged as often as you like, creating a different fairy kingdom depending on which plants and garden elements you decide to use.
The fairy accessories we used within this design include the Pink Slippers Chateu – the star of the show! The chateau creates magnificent eye catching appeal with its bright candy pink tone and turquoise decoration. We sat our miniature fairy down next to her home so that she could water her plants in the sunshine. We positioned some miniature fairy mushrooms around the garden to light the way for our fairy during the night. These mushrooms glow magnificently during nighttime hours, creating an enchanted feel throughout the garden. The frog and Lilly Pad pond creates another interesting feature for our miniature fairy garden. The pond not only looks realistic but adds light into the garden reflecting the rays of the sun and creating a transparent feel to the water, adding depth and appeal. Some Rose quartz stone helped to lighten the feel of the garden, with the set of two miniature classic urns that add to a traditional yet rustic style. Finally we finished with a miniature fairy lamppost accessory which we positioned outside our fairy’s chateau. The lamppost adds traditional charm and a cos finish to the miniature garden!
