Fairy garden ideas aren’t just for kids. Yes – while fairy gardens are often created by or for children, some designs are actually quite pretty and will suit anyone who enjoys garden ornaments. Twee they can be, but what’s wrong with that? Rediscover your inner child and go for it. Also, some fairy garden ideas on our list can be quite easily incorporated into regular garden landscaping, as long as your garden is not minimalist.

1. Get an indoor fairy garden
Problem solved. An indoor fairy garden, no little pieces of pink plastic to spoil your ambiance. It’s really cute too, your child (or the one you have in mind for this fairy garden) can grow their own little garden from seeds and then decorate it with little fairy paraphernalia. There is also a book with many interesting activities and tips for growing your garden. You can also allow him to play with the outdoors if you are feeling generous.
2. Add a fairy gate to your garden
Oh come on, no one can say it’s cute! Annnd very subtle too. So the idea is to place this gate against a tree in your garden and leave little treats and create a cute house for the fairies. You can also get cute mushrooms and adorable windows. Alright, we’re sold, the fairy gardens are so adorable.
3. Create a wild fairy garden
This fairy garden idea would become more of a permanent part of your garden, but we actually think it would look pretty and it would be a great project to do together. We found these Fairy Garden Wildflower Seeds on Not on the High Street and they sparked the idea of ââletting part of your garden get a little wild ‘for the fairies’. Next we saw these adorable glowing mini mushrooms, you can dot the wildflowers or make a path through them for kids to explore.
4. Don’t forget the fairies!
There is only a little time for you to leave tiny footprints or move around on the miniature furniture, before the kids say to themselves “yes, but now I want to see the fairies”. This Fairies & Friends set by John Lewis includes three adorable and fiery looking fairies and their equally adorable animal companions and would be very comfortable in any fairy garden.
5. A fairy garden with solar spots
This trio of Smart Solar Fairy Spotlights completely enchanted us. Not only are fairies dainty and pretty (and conceivable as part of an ordinary garden design), but they have built-in solar lights that can be strategically positioned to light up a garden border or flowerpot. They are made from resin and therefore work well in a rain shower.
6. A tree fairy that can be placed out of reach of pets
One of the potential problems with a fairy garden is that it can easily be destroyed by a curious pet. Solution? Create your fairy garden in height, preferably in a tree. This super cute ladder fairy house comes with a hook on the back – hang from a tree branch, fence or porch.
