How to Make a DIY Miniature Fairy Garden Gift

Books To Help With Your Garden

A couple of weeks ago, we visited a beautiful greenhouse nearby and we stumbled across the most adorable little fairy garden. I hadn't thought too much about fairy gardens in the past, but when I heard both of my daughters audibly gasp when they saw the one at the greenhouse, I knew that we had to do some fairy garden projects this Spring! With Mother's Day coming up soon, I thought some mini fairy garden gifts would be a great way to give this new & adorable little art form a try with my girls. We rounded up a bunch of suitable supplies we had on hand, made some others, and came up with a couple of absolutely sweet DIY mini fairy gardens in tins that will be a fun gift to give to moms for Mother's Day this year! These would also make unique teacher's gifts or gifts for friends too! Here's how we made our mini fairy garden gift in a vintage tin.

Head over to my blog, on or after May 1, 2015 for another mini fairy garden design plus some free printables to go along with it!


  1. Do you have a draining system for this project. I love the mini swing by the way, so adorable!

  2. I use some gravel in the bottom of my planters if they don’t have drainage holes.
