Fairies and magical beings in the garden

Fairies and magical beings in the garden

We are not saying that you turn your yard into a place full of trinkets and ornaments of gaudy colors that you see there, but you can take note of some original details that you can achieve with your imagination and a little extra help.

Tree trunk

Tree trunk

The roots and trunk of a tree are the perfect place for a bit of creativity, particularly if there are gaps or holes in and around the base of the trunk. Create a small path to the gap and place a miniature door in space. You can use an old doll house door or make your own. This is perfect if you do not have space for a tree house full size

Small houses on the tree

Small houses on the tree

To make a miniature fairy garden you can use an old bowl or an old pot. Fill it with compost and then plant a miniature garden inside. Your imagination is the only limit. You can buy small stone houses on the Internet or in garden centers, or you can make your own with recycled materials. You could give your mini house, a miniature garden inside the container with a small path and fence, and use small plants like herbs and small succulents for the garden.

How to make your own mini town?

How to make your own mini town?

If you have a little space and the necessary budget, why not get three or more stone houses and build a village? A wood or shaded area is good for this and you can give each house its own garden and small trails. You can even park the toy cars outside. You may not have the necessary budget for porcelain fairies and small stone houses, but there are still many things you can do to create a great fairytale garden. Build small houses with stones and use pieces of old wood to create rustic style doors. Add a washing line made of a string thread between two small twigs... you could even add some old cloth cuts like the clothes hanging.

What about the water fairies?

What about water fairies?

We have seen some lovely miniature fairy models and, if you have a collection of them, what do you think about placing them around the edges of a water fountain this summer? You can add as many small additional details as you wish, such as miniature bridges, small poisonous mushrooms and do not forget to grow some lilies in the water. Use a small plate to create a miniature water world for a rockery or pot. Add small stones around the edge and some of the smallest plants you can find. Maybe a stick could act like a bench and why not add a small piece of cloth like a fairy towel left by the edge?

Mushrooms and mushrooms

Mushrooms and mushrooms

You can buy mushroom figures at any garden store, but you can also make some using homemade materials. You can use pots of any size, so the mushrooms can be small or large, and you can paint them any color you want. Put them around a corner of your garden and then add some more details. Maybe the typical gnome or some other figure?

A miniature door for enchanted creatures

A miniature door for enchanted creatures

A simple idea for a small space. Why not paint, draw or even make a small door and place it in a corner of the fence and then create a trail of mini footprints that lead to it? Consider it.

mini town

Try using a thick marker to form the main part of the footprint and a ballpoint pen in a normal way to form the heel or any other object that you think may fit the bill.

Moss cover

Moss cover

Give a new bird's box a new purpose and decorate it. Maybe give it a green straw moss roof, a door with a small handle and if you're one for the detail, create a miniature window box. When you're ready, throw it in a tree or in a mysterious corner.

Moss cover for furniture

In the long summer months, when the weather is dry, create small fairy worlds with the furniture of the old dollhouses (or you can make your own or buy ready-made). If you have created a miniature garden in a pot or container, add a table and small chairs outside.

An outdoor tea party

An outdoor tea party

You can have a miniature tea set from the days of your childhood. Choose a small corner and create a picnic scene. A flat stone can act as a table and round stones as stools. Decorate with a small tablecloth and let the grandchildren believe that they have just run into a fairy picnic.

nice decoration

Bonsai trees are perfect for creating a miniature world, especially if you do not have a large space outside. Tap miniature houses or their decorated bird boxes. Create a very small door and connect it to the base of a bonsai and then add a super small path to it.

Do you have one of those old, round bowls of goldfish? The ancient golden fish bowls or water tanks make up a wonderful miniature garden for the smallest space. Cover it with a small amount of compost but you do not need many plants. You can add moss to the grass, sticks and small stones, a small fairy doll or even some miniature animals and then maybe one or two small plants to grow around it.

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe! Do you have an old boot or a shoe that goes to the bucket? You can decorate it with small windows and doors. Place it on an edge or on a bed and create a mini garden around the old woman who lived in a shoe.

Stone fountain

Can you create the scene somewhere in your garden with a small mushroom, a miniature swing or just a mound of earth, a toy spider and a small empty basket, when Miss Muffet escaped?

Miniature garden

Miniature garden

The hanging baskets are an iconic image of summer. But instead of the usual lobelias and petunias, can you add a touch of fairy magic? A house and a path in miniature, a little fairy sitting on a stone? You could have more than one hanging fairy basket. But whatever you do, remember to hang them low enough so that everyone can see the magic.

Animal world

Animal world

We have explored the world of fairies, but what about the animal kingdom? Sylvanian animal families are perfect for this. When you have created your miniature world from small houses or boxes of recycled birds, why not splash these delicious animals in the small town? Although remember to save them if it rains.

The traditional garden gnome

We should not forget the typical garden gnome, especially if you have already placed some poisonous mushrooms. Take a look at your local garden center because there are usually many gnomes and different animals on offer and with very little effort and a little placement will add a real touch of fun to your garden.
