A Fairytale Career in Fairy Gardening

A Fairytale Career in Fairy Gardening


Let’s face it ~ for some of us, fairy gardening is more than a hobby, it’s a way of life. A happy addiction that finds you creating more and more picturesque scenes and themes with or without the greenery. Every nook and cranny indoors and out tell a story. Charming tales of micro worlds with characters and creatures, and where creativity knows no end.

Now what if we told you, you could actually get paid to create fairy gardens. Parlay this obsession into a lucrative career. (Cue lightbulb!) Believe it or not, you can make a living inventing tiny lands with unique appeal. (And it’s not work if you love what you do!)

Fairy Garden Landscape Architect

Prove you have a knack for creating fairy gardens striking enough to impress the masses and garden centers may find your talent particularly appealing. Fairy figurines and miniature accessories can be found in nurseries. One of the best ways to pique the interest of prospective buyers (nay, fairy garden enthusiasts in waiting) is to show them what they can create. Garden centers, particularly the larger ones, will setup elaborate displays with green spaces, floral exhibits, and water features. And you know what’s missing? Those tiny accents and charming details that make gardens come alive. And that’s where you come in.

And It’s Not Just Retail Outlets

Botanical gardens, arboretums, and commercial solariums create fairy gardens for year-round displays as well as special events. Some even hold programs dedicated to this craft that require complex scenes entwined with the landscape, as well as recruit professionals for beginner and intermediate instruction on site. Which brings us to the educational opportunities that can help you make money from your love of fairy gardening.

Ever Hear of YouTube?

Becoming your own fairy garden internet sensation isn’t out of the realm of possibility for those completely ensconced in the lifestyle. Yeah, we’re talking to you. The ones with the seasonal displays that blow your neighbors out of the water. The magnetic gardens that are instagrammed by friends and go viral for their intricacies.

Setup a camera and broadcast your creativity to interested viewers. (Or start small and tell your friends to share out the link. If you’re that good, word will spread quickly.) Gain enough followers and you can get yourself some corporate sponsors. You’d be surprised at how quickly the ad revenue adds up. And just like that, you’ve got your own show on fairy gardening. Keep it fresh and engaging by designing and challenging yourself to come up with new and inventive projects. And don’t just show off your own projects. Share your knowledge - expand your horizons…

Create tutorials for newbies and start a DIY series to take your YouTube success to online stores. Ecommerce sites love to post instructional videos on their websites and across social media. Create a library of tutorials and pitch them to companies who may just be interested in buying some content.

So, there you go. Get paid to create fairy gardens. Turn tiny worlds into big profits while doing what you do best. Turn your passion into a paycheck for a fairytale career.
