Take Your Fairy Garden Up a Notch – Creating Imaginative Mini Towns and Villages

Take Your Fairy Garden Up a Notch – Creating Imaginative Mini Towns and Villages

Been there. Done that. You’re no stranger to adding personality and charm to your garden with fairies and their quaint little abodes. Now it’s time to take it up a notch.


Micro gardens are so much more than a figurine or two placed among a few pieces of tiny accents. But you already know that. You know how much fun, nay addicting, it can be to design clever little scenes in a flower pot, near a tree stump, or among the backyard brush. An intriguing door or two. A stone cottage. A bistro table and chairs set for tea. And of course, those miniature creatures with huge expressions living the tiny dream.



It’s why every nook and cranny of your greenery is adorned with character and curiosity.

Now that you’ve developed an affinity for designing these unique little scenes, it’s time to stretch your creative muscles even further. Turn your fairy garden into a micro universe that tells the whole story.



Each fairy you invite into your home can have a unique place to lay their heads including their own with accompanying décor that reflects their personality. Larger than life fairies need an over the top villa with all the accoutrements. Enchantress fairies like Claire may find themselves more comfortable in a witchy or haunted house flanked with tombstones and bubbling cauldrons.  Shy fairies may find sanctuary in a hideout home in disguised as a windmill whereas, lighthouse keepers need to be out in the open and settled close to the shore. No matter the fairy, pixie, sprite, or elf, they can all coexist in your own little micro village.



The towns you can create can reflect the seasons with snow capped trees and carolers in front of steepled churches. Celebrating the season with holiday festivities such as snowball fights and merriment that make up a wintry panorama in your flourishing garden. There can be signs of spring as your fairies enjoy outdoor play at the park and catch fireflies lit up in the evening sky. And in summer the county fair can bring everyone together for rides, contests, and barnyard friends. As the leaves change or among your warm colored flowers of fall, young fairies can gather in front of their schoolhouse as your mini friends head back to class.



From gypsy campsites to rustic chic habitats that define green building at its most creative, it’s about designing your own micro-universe from the main structures right down to the teeny tiny accessories that bring these villages to life. It’s easy to get lost in your imagination, and even easier to make a fairy world your own.

    I know typically live plants are desired, however I have such a hard time keeping up with the watering as I live in an apartment with no ability to have a drip system. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?
