Miniature fairy gardens are becoming more and more popular. Not only are they relatively simple to set up, but they are brilliant conversation pieces.
The one area some people have trouble with is finding accessories and the inhabitants of their fairy garden.
Luckily there are ready made solutions to get you started.
A fairy garden accessory kit can get you started and off to a flying start right out of the gate. Then, if you like, you can add or switch out components that have a more personal meaning for you.
But at least you started and have something going!
In this post we’re going to discuss some ideas that can help you get started and show you five miniature fairy garden kits that are already on the market.
These kits generally do not include the container, soil, or plants – although some do. That part you get to decide and get set up for the arrival and placement of your fairy garden accessories.
We will talk briefly about the two stages of setting up a fairy garden.

Stage 1 Getting Your Fairy Garden Ready For Decoration
There are two very important things you must keep in mind in order to have successful in good-looking fairy garden.
- You must determine the scale (size), of the figures, container, and plants themselves, and in relationship to each other.
- You’ll want to determine the theme of your fairy garden. Is this for your children or grandchildren? A friend of mine wanted to create a Lord Of The Rings theme.
Now that you have a few ideas in your head it is time to start on making them a reality.
To get started with fairy gardens it may help to think of them initially as simply another container garden. The setting up process is very similar.
When setting up a container planting there are three things you want to take a look at. The first is the container itself, then the soil or growing medium, and finally the plants.
I have seen some very clever fairy gardens set in stumps or decorative logs. I love the decorative, natural look of this log I found on Amazon. It is perfect for a miniature fairy garden back drop.
Of course, your growing medium will to be to be dependent on the type of plants you choose.

Stage 2 – Selecting You Miniature Fairy Garden Kit
Before offering use examples of complete miniature fairy garden kits, I want to plant an idea or two with you. If this is something you have been thinking about doing, my advice is to just do it.
You don’t necessarily have to be on the lookout for “fairy garden” accessories. Just keep it in the forefront of your mind and take a trip to a couple thrift stores. You may find a few usable pieces.
Another suggestion is to take a look in chain hobby stores such as Michaels, or Hobby lobby they may have a few things that you can use. You can always pick up one or two items in either add them to your fairy garden scenario or swap them out occasionally to keep it fresh.
