Creating a Miniature Garden (sometimes called a Fairy Garden) has become very popular today. It’s history, however, is over 100 years old! There’s an interesting history on fairy gardening which gives all the information on how and where it started.

Today, a miniature garden may contain fairies or just be a miniature scene where perhaps a fairy or gnome might visit. They are imaginative and fun to create. As you will see, any container can be used for a miniature garden. Scenes vary from elaborate to very simple.  The inspiration found on these sites will give you lots of ideas to create your own so let your imagination go wild and have fun!

  1. I love all the lil fairy gardens, I am still wanting to make one and after seeing the smallest I think I could handle that. I wish I could find things locally.

    Hope you have a great week!

    • I found things online! There are many shops for fairy garden supplies. It saved me running around to look for exactly what I wanted.

  2. So many fun ideas! I am slowly making one myself so I can appreciate all the work that goes into each tiny detail. Wow!

    • Thanks! Aren’t they fun to create?

  3. I’ve tried many times to subscribe to receive this blog using my email and it always says “there is an error pls. try again”. How else may I subscribe. I do not have a facebook account.

  5. These are such cute ideas!

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

    • Nice compliment! Thank you!

  6. I had no idea the making of Fairy Gardens went back so far. What a delight to see all of these. I started to pick out my favorite but soon realized that was impossible. They are all so special.

    • I didn’t know that until I did some research and found out that information! Kinda fun to know. I thought they were a new thing!

  7. What a cute garden. You have inspired me to create one of my own. Thanks for linking at the #HomeMattersParty this week and hope you will come back next weekend to link up again.

    • Wonderful! I’m sure your garden will be fun to do. Half the fun is making it!

Love to hear from you!
