Fairy Statues: Gifts for Gardeners

Updated on June 9, 2014

The Rose Fairy has graced our back garden for years. Right now she's sitting in the birdbath, amid shimmers and reflections on the water.

Cast resin fairy statues can be used in many places in your yard. You can set them among plants and flowers, or as the finish of a mosaic patio. Some are made to perch daintily on the edge of a step or stone; others are poised to fly out across the lawn.

Some come in stone color that you can leave unfinished, or paint in fanciful colors. You can also glue bright glass roundels and colored rocks onto the figures, to glitter in the sun.

Fairy garden statues make lovely gifts for gardeners - or treat yourself to a shy little fay for your own yard!

        I have two gnomes that hide in the ferns and wait to surprise my grandsons.
