Ideas for Indoor Fairy Garden Fun 1  – The Perfect Planter

more ideas for indoor fairy garden fun two pots More Ideas for Indoor Fairy Garden Fun ❀ Fairy Circle GardenWhen it comes to an indoor fairy garden, there are some basics to be taken into account. Most indoor planters are comprised of two pots.

There is the cachepot, which is the decorative planter that oftentimes has no drainage, and is intended strictly for decorative purposes. Then there is the grow pot, or drainage pot. more ideas for indoor fairy garden fun grow pot More Ideas for Indoor Fairy Garden Fun ❀ Fairy Circle GardenThese are pots that are often plastic or some other less expensive material that has good drainage (holes in the bottom to allow excess water to escape so the roots don’t rot) and actually contains the soil and the plant.

If using an outdoor planter, I make sure to have a water dish under the planter to avoid a mess of water on the floor (potentially causing damage) after giving the plant a thorough watering.more ideas for indoor fairy garden fun eleveated planter More Ideas for Indoor Fairy Garden Fun ❀ Fairy Circle Garden Outdoor planters used inside is a good way to mix up the indoor fairy garden fun!

 

Elevated Planters

Wine barrel planters also play into a lovely design motif that can provide a larger area to create the fairy space.

Galvanized Steel Planters

Galvanized steel planters are a great way to use a material that is not only resistant to rust, but also adds a tiny bit of zinc to the soil, which can be beneficial to the health of the soil. more ideas for indoor fairy garden fun galvanized steel planter More Ideas for Indoor Fairy Garden Fun ❀ Fairy Circle Garden(Zinc ingested in large amounts is toxic, but studies have shown that galvanized steel planters and garden beds do not produce enough zinc in the soil to be harmful.) These planters are often much lighter than similar sized planters, and therefore are easier to move; as long as they have not been filled with soil and plants yet.

Hanging Baskets

Sitting fairy figurines are a favorite of many, and a hanging basket is the perfect place for one of these sweet little statuettes. Some fishing line and a couple dangling fairy garden accessories also make for a lot of added fun!

Different Ways to Use Planters

more ideas for indoor fairy garden fun tiered planters More Ideas for Indoor Fairy Garden Fun ❀ Fairy Circle GardenOne of my favorite ways to make regular planters have more dimension is to create a tiered tower. Simply taking a large planter, and placing a smaller planter (usually buried about halfway to provide stability) towards the back edge of the larger one. Then repeat the process with an even smaller planter, and there is an immediate 3-level tiered garden created by nothing but different sized pots.

Those make fantastic self-contained tiered planters. The pieces are also good to be used within the garden itself up against the lip of a planter or on its side with a small plant growing out of it.  As long as you can imagine a use for it, there is a way to make it work!  Let the creativity flow!more ideas for indoor fairy garden fun fairy door More Ideas for Indoor Fairy Garden Fun ❀ Fairy Circle Garden

Another way to make seemingly boring pots pop with magic is to decorate the outside of them with fairy garden stuff! Glue a fairy door and surround it with a bunch of small stones glued to the outside of the pot makes the fairy magic inescapable.

Using multiple smaller pots or low planters arranged with fairy garden accessories all around and surrounding them makes for a lot of fun!

Ideas for Indoor Fairy Garden Fun 3 – Beautiful Things

when it comes to fairy garden accessories, there are plenty to buy online. When looking for things that are already available, or are not as expensive, try some of these…

Cheap Small Birdhouses

more ideas for indoor fairy garden fun bird house More Ideas for Indoor Fairy Garden Fun ❀ Fairy Circle GardenDollar store bird houses often come in plain wood color, without much adornment. With a glue gun, some paints, and a bit of imagination, that can change! Try getting a pine cone and carefully breaking off the pieces. Use the hot glue gun to glue them back on the roof as shingles. Or even a few pieces of bark that fell off a tree. Some twigs glued to the walls of the house would look neat. Some moss falling out of the hole for the bird could make it look nice and cozy.

Colored Glass “Rocks”

In a shallow depression in the potting soil, they can easily be a magical pool. If arranged as a pathway between plants, the fairies now have a walkway. They even make great walls when glued to the top half of popsicle sticks and placed side by side up against the lip of the planter. So many uses!

Popsicle Sticks

Paint them however you like and glue them together to make a little bench for the fairies to rest on. Glued together with a little glass bead on one side they make a great fairy door. They are especially good for letting the kids get involved with both arts and crafts as well as gardening!

Lights

Twinkle lights or LEDs are a great way to add that little bit of extra magic to the fairy garden. The LED lights even come in strips now that are easy to adhere. Make sure if using lights in the fairy garden to maintain safety and place the planter near an outlet (or have battery operated lights).
