Building a fairy garden in an old wheelbarrow is simple and really quite fun. It is like creating a miniature magical world that you can transport from indoors to outdoors depending on the weather. Laura Kuhlmann helped me make this one and it turned out PERFECT!
To get started you will need the following list of items:
- Rocks and Grating
- Gravel and Decorative Stones
- Fairy Garden Plants
- Fairy Garden Miniature Accessories
The first step is to drill holes into the wheelbarrow for drainage.
Next, put little grates over the holes so your soil won’t fall through.
Fill the wheelbarrow up MOST of the way with soil and place your plants.
Plant your plants.
Add your decorative rocks and gravels to make paths.
We added a hill to our garden.
We also added an adorable body of water with blue shiny stones.
Here is an up-close shot of the final garden.
Visit your local garden shop for more support regarding plants that are right for your climate. you can find fairy sized accessories now at your local craft shops as well as many garden stores.
Happy Fairy Home Making,
