Fairy gardens are truly magical. For me, they not only provide an escape from the chaotic world, but they also inspire my creative side.

Last spring, when I visited one of my friend’s homes, I saw a beautiful indoor fairy garden in a pot for the first time. I curiously asked her how she did it.

That sparked my creativity and, I decided to make a miniature garden for my kids.

How to Create an Indoor Fairy Garden in a Pot

Setting up a fairy garden in a pot is a fun activity you can do it with kids. A fairy garden is all about your creativity and imagination. Feel free to add whatever accessories you like.

Before we dive into the tutorials, let’s discuss the pot or container.

There are a variety of containers to choose for your fairy garden. Start with a simple terracotta pot, a tray, or a galvanized tub.

Whatever pot you choose, just make sure it is a wide container and not too deep inside.

If you have a broken pot in your garden, it’s even better. You can transform it into a broken pot fairy garden. More on that later. Keep scrolling.

Fairy garden accessories for the project:

  • Get a tiny fairy house from Hobby Lobby in their garden section.
  • Get some succulents, fern, or bonsai from your local nursery.
  • Few moss
  • Fairy furniture – Table, chair or bench
  • Tiny mushrooms
  • Fairy figurine and gnomes
  • Bridge, and fences
  • Pond
  • Pebbles and gravels to make garden path
  • You can also go for Polymer clay accessories

Directions to create a DIY fairy garden in a pot:

Take a pot. Fill the container with potting soil and level it properly.

Place the fairy house in your favorite spot and plant tiny trees on both sides of the house.

Then add a little moss around it. If you add tiny fences around the tress, it looks nice.

A mix of real plants and some artificial plants would be best.

Next, make a fairy pathway with some gravels and pebbles. If you’re making a beach-themed fairy garden, use blue pebbles and sand. You can also add stepping stones along the pathway.

On one side of the pathway, you can incorporate a pond or bubbling river. On the opposite side, you can install a miniature table, chair, or benches.

If you want, you can also add a bridge near the pathway.

In the empty spots, you can add tiny mushrooms, fairy plants, and succulents. 

And finally add fairy figurine, gnomes, and animals.
