Sent from reader, Sammy:

Hi Collin! I wanted to share my awesome finds at Dollar Tree! They have adorable fairy garden figurine three packs with gnomes, owls and fairies. They also had larger items like toadstools, welcome signs and fairy houses.

I grabbed a farmhouse style galvanized bucket along with some moss and glass stones from the garden aisle. We used stones and dirt from my garden and some succulent shoots from plants I already had. All together this fun weekend craft was under ten dollars. My daughter loved it!

    So cute! Think I’m going to do this with my kiddos!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I agree! Super cute! Hope you and your kiddos have a blast!

    Instead of more candy, our leprechaun on St Patrick’s Day left the kids supplies to make a fairy garden. I let them pick out some cheap cactus and succulents themselves at Home Depot so they could personalize it, but all of our other supplies came from the Dollar Store. And the best part is that many of the small figures came in a pack of three, so it was a cheap project for 3 kids and they still love to play with their fairies.

      What a neat idea Rochelle! Thanks for sharing with us! I may need to keep that in mind for next year!

  3. Laura

    I had this same idea! We made ours this week too!

  4. Mrs.W

    Great idea! Super cute too!

    We have an outdoor fairy garden that gets played with constantly. This summer, we’re going to make a dinosaur garden for my 2 year old son!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh wow! LOVE the idea of a dinosaur garden! My Nephew would get such a kick out of that! Thanks for the suggestion!

    Am I the only one who has no idea what this is for? There’s now an entire aisle at Michael’s for this mini garden. Is it meant to be like a dollhouse except with garden items?

    • Sue

      Yes they have mini live plants at just about any plant nursery. You plant them and then use accessories of your choice.

    • Rochelle

      Basically. Miniature landscaping. The idea is that you make a little garden inviting enough that a fairy will come and dwell with you for good luck 😁

    Dollar general also has $1 supplies for fairy gardens, gnome gardens, and the seven dwarf gardens. There was a lot to choose from at my local store.

  8. *Angela-Miles*

    I came here to post the same thing as Sue. These aren’t my thing, so I didn’t look in a whole lot of detail, but dollar general has a big selection of little fairy garden supplies.
    They even have Disney figures to add to them that arent too expensive. Check them out also if have a dollar general 😉

    Love this

    I have just been looking into doing this with my daughters! I bought the fairy accessories at Dollar Tree last month and was trying to figure out what little grasses, mosses, forgetme knots, etc. to plant as we will be in and out and not always able to water so need hearty plants to do that won’t die

  11. LaDawn

    If you want plants that need very little watering, try succulents (like the ones pictured!). I am not a gardener, but my understanding is that you need to water succulents only once every few weeks.

    • nin

      Thanks for tip-my daughters want to keep them outside too so not sure how sturdy various succulents can be for NE but I will research and maybe see if something like wheatgrass can mixed in for some areas too because I think that would grow easily/quickly
