Fairy Gardens are a whimsical way to provoke creativity and add a little magic to your home. With some simple supplies (all found at the dollar store!) you can make a beautiful fairy garden for your spritely friends to have Easter brunch with you.

The best part about a Fairy Garden is that you can put literally whatever you want in it. For this one, I decorated a doll-house wooden table and added some fairy sized treats. I also made a pom pom banner with some Easter egg embellishments.

The only thing you absolutely have to have is a container of some sort. I suggest this dollar store pail that is already painted with flowers--score!

Easter Fairy Garden Materials

This craft is easily customized. All you need to start is a canister, tin or bucket to begin, a bit of grass or moss to fill the basket and the build  the fairy's living space. We used dried flowers, pompoms and doll furniture -- use that as inspiration. Painting is optional, we added this as a craft within a craft.

  • Tin, canister or basket
  • Grass or moss for filler
  • Glue gun
  • Sticks 
  • Accessories for the fairy's house (we suggest shopping in the dollhouse supplies).

Have fun creating a space and then wait for the fairies to arrive. Small toys like LEGOs can also be incorporated. Momtrends Tip: This craft can easily be set up for multiple children. It's perfect for Sunday school, or a brunch where you need kid activities.
