Fairy Gardening 101: How to Design, Plant, Grow, and Create Over 25 Miniature Gardens

For the ground of the fairy garden, I have used dried leaves of my garden flowers. I have sprinkled them on the ground so that it looks beautiful. I have also removed the dead plants before keeping the dried leaves on the ground. Now it is time for the birdhouse to make. With the twigs, I have made a birdhouse using hot glue to attach them together.

I have used moss on top of the birdhouse, so it looks real as well as funny. Its door is the main attraction for me. I have used twigs to make the birdhouse’s door. After that, I have removed the center part of a silk flower to make the knob of the door. To make it more realistic, I have used mosses on top of the birdhouse.

To climb (literally) on to the birdhouse, I have made a wooden ladder. For this, I have to spend some time to prepare the ladder. I utilized the hot glue to attach the twigs with the end part of it with another. Making these attempts for them several times, I ended up making the ladder to lean against the roof of the birdhouse to climb up.

Birds need to bath also. I have put a terra cotta tray at the bottom of the small terra cotta pot using hot glue to attach them together. I took a few minutes to make the birdbath in the fairy garden. Now it was time for the fairy garden to look more beautiful. For this reason, I have placed some pebbles white and other colors on the ground to make the path of the birdhouse.

My fairy garden was almost ready but missing something. Then I have put some dried twigs around the birdhouse so that they look there are dried trees to make a forest. With the leftover moss, I have sprinkled them to cover the uncovered ground, so it looks prettier. Also, you can add artificial flower bouquets here to beautify the garden. To do so, you can order  bouquet online.
