My daughter just had a birthday and she got the best gift, a bunch of items to make her own fairy garden.

This is perfect for her. It wasn’t a kit or anything with directions, but a bunch of crafting supplies. She can let her imagination go wild.

With a few minutes searching the internet, she knew where she was starting.

I set her up her own Pinterest board for fairy garden ideas. You can look or follow it here. Browse through it and you will definitely be inspired. You may even make a fairy town!

The best thing about a fairy garden is that you can put it anywhere outside. Pick a corner, tree, or bush and get started. It can be as big and elaborate as you want.
