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!
