Seven Lucky Fairy Gardens

Container Garden: Create a magical fairy garden with a teapot house and some pixie dustOver the last year I have become slightly addicted to miniature gardening. It all started when I created a small fairy garden with a teapot-like house in a container by our front door. That led me to create an entire fairy village in the back yard. Now, I seem to have little fairy gardens popping up all over the place.

I recently noticed that some of my older gardens needed sprucing up. So, I cleaned out the leaves and debris that had accumulated over the winter and planted a few new flowers to replace ones that didn't survive.

Let me take you on a tour of my newly remodeled miniature and magical communities.

We'll start at the base of my terraced fairy village. This area actually fared pretty well over the winter. The solar lights still glow each night along the path in my tiny neighborhood.

Fairy Garden: Create a fairy house with a re-purposed glass bottle

This is the bottle house and was created with a Baileys Irish Cream bottle and some glass paint.

Fairy Garden: Create a fairy house with a painted mason jar

Next door is the mason jar house. You may notice this house has changed colors dramatically since it's creation. I'll admit, I didn't follow the most important step in the tutorial I wrote. "Let the paint dry completely before you place the lid on the jar." After a few days outside, all of the paint slid off the sides of the glass and formed a wet, globby clump at the bottom. So, I had the pleasure of repainting the jar and testing my patience.

Fairy Garden: Create a fairy house with a re-purposed paint can

Just up the hill is the paint can house.  This is one of the areas that got a new plant, a Petite Licorice. I love the silvery leaves.

Fairy Garden: Create a rustic fairy house with a log and moss

Further up the hill is the rustic log house. One of the Angel's Hair plants got a trim, the other got transplanted and was replaced by a Deep Pink Verbena. I think the flowers add a nice touch to the area.

Fairy Garden: Create a fairy house with a clay pot, crushed shells and grout

The shell house used to be a part of the main fairy village. Unfortunately it became overrun by the Gopher Plant jungle this spring so the house was relocated to create a new beach garden from a vacant, tipped clay pot. My own tiny beach oasis in the middle of the desert.

Fairy Garden: Create an alpine fairy house with a painted syrup bottle

Finally, my Alpine garden made with a syrup bottle house and a little Italian Stone Pine that I received for Christmas. I think they make a lovely pairing.

For now, I'll try to refrain from creating any more miniature landscapes. My family says there's no more room in the yard for fairy gardens, but there's always room for a little bit of magic!
