Top 6 Sitting Fairy Garden Statues

sitting fairy silhouetteI’ve always loved the beauty and simplicity of sitting fairy garden statues haven’t you? They seem to invoke a sense of wonder, as if we have happened upon the fairy taking a rest in whichever cultivated corner we’ve prepared for them and, being caught unaware, they simply froze in place and will go about their merry way once we have gone on ours.

Statues in the garden can be a simple decision of decor, or an honorary place you wish to mark special with an immortal fairy visitor. they can be placed on the ground, in a pot or made a centerpiece, so they work well in either purpose. The possibilities are only limited by your purpose and imagination!

As with any garden decor, there are things that have to be considered. What is the ornament made of? How big or small do you want it to be? Do you want one that comes painted? What is your price range? Do you want a single fairy, or part of a set? What are the reviews like of those who have already purchased that particular fairy? While there are a vast array of options to choose from, after extensive research here’s my top 6 favorites!

The Sunflower Fairy Statue

This gorgeous fairy statue is the perfect accent to any garden area. Artist Evelyn Myers Hartley brings forth a mesmerizing blend of realistic features and ethereal fancy with her Sunflower Fairy. The flower wreath adorning her head adds to the beauty of this collectible piece. The sunflower bowl in her outstretched hands is an elegant yet functional detail.Sunflower fairy

The Sunflower Fairy is a sturdy statue coming in at 19 1/2 inches high and weighing a hefty 10 pounds. She can withstand a breezy day, but her broad wings could catch some blustery wind gusts and should be taken into consideration. She is made out of designer resin and has a beautiful 2-tone finish.

With an average customer review of 4.7 stars, she’s an excellent choice! Here are a couple customer remarks out of the more than 30 comments made.

Lisa D from Lakeville, Minnesota, USA says, “I purchased this item for my garden about a month ago. It is truly lovely, with much detail. It is heavy/solid and appears well constructed. The wings are separate and slide in grooves on her back, which makes it less awkward to carry around and probably less likely to break. I am very satisfied!” – 5 stars

Fairy Godmother from Rochester New York, USA says, “Just received this beautiful fairy statue. Came packaged very well and the wings were easy to attach… just be sure you put them on the correct side, facing the correct way and they slip in easily. Can’t wait for the children in the neighborhood to see my new addition to the fairy garden!” – 5 stars

The Secret Garden Fairy Statues Set: Gazing and Pondering Fairy

The Evelyn Myers Hartley puts a new spin on elegant fairy sculptures with this unique set of sitting fairy garden statues. The Gazing and Pondering fairies are both exquisite examples of attention to detail and creativity. The Gazing fairy even holds a crystal that she is using to see the answers to the questions of the universe… at least that’s what I like to think she’s doing. The Secret Garden Fairies

The faux stone finish and designer resin casting create a unique look that is almost indistinguishable from real stone at a distance. The Gazing Fairy is the one holding the crystal and is 10 inches high while the Pondering Fairy is only 8 1/2 inches. Both weigh 4 pounds, but reports are that they sit very evenly, and falls are not very common.

These fanciful fairies possess an impressive average customer review of 4.8 stars, with over 30 reviews.

ZLeach131 from Madison, Connecticut, USA says, “They are gorgeous, hold up well outdoors and are a fabulous design no matter which fairy you get!! Beautiful in any garden, I have bought them as gifts for friends and they also love them!” – 5 stars

Cheryl76 from Burnsville, Minnesota, USA says, “We purchased these fairies over 10 years ago for my first fairy garden. They have been moved several times over the years. We give them a good “scrub” each spring and then place them back in their current garden. I love them! No complaints.” – 5 stars

These beautiful statues are available for 65.95 plus shipping. You can get more details about these statues here.

Fairy of the West Wind Sitting Statue

Artist Cecilia brings to life the fanciful figurine of the Fairy of the West Wind. Her delicate flute and exquisite fairy wings jump out at you no matter if she is on a windowsill or on a garden wall. Fairy of the West Wind Sitting

She tops out at a height of 19 inches, and does have some simple assembly required- wings to body. She is 3 pounds in weight made from designer resin, and due to her longer and thinner nature, you want to make sure she is tucked in a corner or secured as to avoid her getting knocked off or dropped. Her delicate nature and her beautifully sculpted features make her a must-have.

Here are a couple customer comments from her 4.4 star average reviews.

Syan from Ontario, Canada says, “I love this fairy. I’ve had her now for three years. Yes I’ve had to glue the wings back and i have hot glued her to the perch she sits on. She has been through three Canadian winters outside and nothing has broken so far. She is the centerpiece of my back yard.” – 5 stars

Lonnykins from Vancouver, Washington, USA says, “Love this faerie! Suitable for you musical spaces that need that extra touch of magic. Coat in Never Wet and she can even sit unblemished where birds gather. Exquisite!” – 5 stars

You can get her for 59.95 plus shipping. You can check out further details on this statue here.

Fairy of Hopes and Dreams Garden Statue

Cecelia creates another divine sculpture in a magnificent depiction this pensive pixie that is perfect as a centerpiece for a garden retreat. The artistic detail from the fanciful wings all the way down to the designer boots and leaf litter brings a realism that captures the imagination. Fairy of Hopes and Dreams

At approximately 22 inches tall, the Fairy of Hopes and Dreams is the perfect pinnacle to any fairy garden retreat. She also weighs in at an impressive 8 pounds, and therefore will withstand most windy weather. She is made out of designer resin with a two-tone finish and there is some simple assembly required. (Attach wings to back.)

The Fairy of Hopes and Dreams only has a 3.9 star average customer review, but I attribute that to the small amount of customer reviews so far. (There are only 7.)

LuckyLinda from Palmetto, Florida, USA says,” I purchased this fairy last month to be top of my new water feature. She is beautiful with great detail. So pleased with her. I have purchased many beautiful things… but she is my favorite.” – 5 stars

Say hello to the beautiful Fannie the Fairy. She is perfect for a sheltered nook or garden wall outside as well as your mantle or bookshelf in your home. No matter where she ends up, Fannie will delight all who come across her wistful perch. Fannie the Fairy Sitting

This full color painted piece of art truly delights the senses with a mix of designer resin body, die-cut metal wings and fabric for the lovely petal skirt. She is 12 1/2 inches in height and a delicate 1 pound in weight, which makes her prone to take a tumble if winds arise.

Fannie has over 45 reviews and averages 4.4 stars. Here are a couple customer reviews.

The Choice is Yours

Garden statues can be a very special thing to a person, and I hope I made it easier for you by going over the design, dimensions, reviews and prices. Whatever your reasons for choosing a sitting fairy garden statue, it all comes down to your particular aesthetic style.

Personally, my favorite is a draw between The Sunflower Fairy, and The Secret Garden Fairy Statues. (The Gazing Fairy in particular.)

Sunflower fairy

 

I like The Sunflower Fairy because of the sunflower bowl and how big she is. Some customers appreciated this as well by utilizing the statue as a bird feeder on occasion. This is along the same lines that I was thinking.

 

 

The Secret Garden FairiesI like the Secret Garden Fairies because of the faux stone coating and the crystal being held by the Gazing Fairy. I have a special place in my heart for crystals in the garden. They bring out the magic.

  1. The statues are gorgeous. They are all very sweet but I particularly love Fannie the Fairy statue and The Secret Garden Fairy Statues Set: Gazing and Pondering Fairy. Thanks

  2. Hi Randi,

    Really pleased I came across your article. For one, these statues are beautiful and they look great in the garden. Two, my sister-in-law is always updating her garden and I have a great idea for a Christmas present now. I am going to get her one or two of these statues. She will be over the moon.

    I will let you know what one I choose and what my sister-in-law thinks when I give them to her at Christmas.

    Thank you for sharing and keep up the great work.

    All the best,

    Tom

  3. You presented us with beautiful sitting fairy garden statues. My favorites (though of course, they’re all gorgeous) are The Sunflower Fairy statue and Fairy of Hopes and Dreams. I love this dreaminess of theirs or their focused attention on mysterious and magical worlds.
    Thanks for presenting these statues!
    Friendly greeting,
    Nina

  4. Hi Randi,
    What a lovely post! I love fairies and I would love to have some of these in my garden! I have a few metal butterflies with solar lights (but I have to change the batteries, lol). However, I would really like to add some of those fairies. My favorite one is the Fairy of the West. Do they ship internationally?

    1. Christine,
      Yes, they do ship internationally. According to the website, for Fairy of the West, they are “able to ship to international locations for an additional shipping charge. Some restrictions on items do apply”
      Lol, solar lights with batteries? Who came up with that? 🙃
      I’m so glad you like them, and I hope you enjoy the lovely Fairy of the West! Shoot me an email with a picture of her in your garden. Thank you!

  5. Wow! These are gorgeous! I have been trying to think of a gift idea for my wife for Christmas and I really like the Sunflower Fairy! She has a Birdbath in the garden that looks like a sunflower and it sits in front of a bench. I can picture this Sunflower Fairy sitting on that bench with her sunflower bowl full of birdseed! Thank you for this post and thorough descriptions of these statues!

    1. That sounds like exactly where the Sunflower Fairy is supposed to be. I know your wife will give her a great home and you’ll be a star for giving such a thoughtful Christmas present! Win-win! Lol
      I’d love to see this sunflower birdbath with Sunflower Fairy. I hope you enjoy her and thank you!
