Christmas Fairy Garden

Updated on June 17, 2017

Fairies Love Christmas Time Too

Source

Fairy gardens are a hot topic for gardeners and fun to make for adults and children. A miniature garden, just the right size for a fairy, is a delight outside in warmer months.

When Christmas comes around, it might be a bit chilly to set-up and tend a tiny garden outside. That's when you create your holiday scene in a planter indoors.

You'll want plants like hen and chicks, moss and ferns to set the theme for your Christmas fairy. Some of the props used for Christmas village set ups are just the right size for your fairy garden. Maybe you already have some of those on hand.

You might want a path made of flat pebbles with your plants placed around that. Add a bench for the fairy and maybe some lights. The tiny white lights used at Christmas are called fairy lights in England. You can conceal the cords for the lights under the plants.

Here's the perfect fairy for your little Christmas garden. I have several fairies in my summer garden, but this one is just right for Christmas. She has the sweetest expression and a delightful green dress.

In addition, you can include a bonsai-sized fir tree. Search through your Christmas ornaments for the teeniest ones to decorate the fairy tree. Just finding the right sized ornaments is fun.


Look at Some Items You Already Have

Notice the gazebo on the top shelf. I think it's perfect to put in a Christmas fairy garden. There are lots of Christmas village houses and accessories at holiday time. These might fit perfectly in your fairy garden.

This lights up (and the batteries are already included). Turn it on each evening so your fairy can find her way home. It has a green roof and some Christmas accents, which make it perfect for situating in your container garden of miniature plants. Place some small gravel (like aquarium gravel) or some small flat stones to make a walkway to the front door.

Look at the variety here in these tiny plants. These are just the right size for your project. These are available from Amazon, but you can check your local garden center too. Most likely, the local centers don't have many plants on hand in mid-winter, even in Florida where I live.

If you already have some houseplants, perhaps take cuttings from them to root and provide the smaller plants needed for the miniature garden.

What a fun selection you have here. In December, it can be difficult to find the right plants locally, but these can be ordered from Amazon.

I like the colorful leaves in these plants. They don't need flowers to make a show.

      This is a very different way to decorate for Christmas or the winter months. Looks like a lot of fun.
