If you ever visit me over at Suburble, you’ll know that we’re big campers. We love to get away for the weekend – “roughing in” – while the kids ride their bikes and become dirt magnets.
This love of camping inspired us to create a little camping fairy garden. Even though Fairies love their homes, I’m sure that they appreciate a getaway every now and again. Follow along as I share some fun campsite fairy garden ideas with you!
Campsite fairy garden ideas supplies:
- Four Dowel Rods.
- Elastic/Elastic Thread.
- Piece of Fabric (mine was 10 x 10″).
- Faux Succulents.
- Rocks & Pot filled with Dirt.
- Fairy Figurines.
- Miniature Charcoal Grill.
- Miniature Enamelware Pots and Pans.
- Miniature Fishing Pole.
- Miniature Washing-up Tub.
- An Imagination!
I started by creating the little fairy-tent. To do this, I grabbed the four dowels and grouped them together with an elastic. You will notice that I just grabbed a hair elastic at this time, because I was brainstorming. I soon realized that this just wouldn’t do. It gets swapped out for gold elastic thread pretty quickly.
You can glue the front of the tent flaps to the dowel if you want (or if the fairy campsite is going to be near a draft), or you can leave them be.
I had my little helpers set the stage for the campsite. We used rocks and faux succulents for the background. I am in LOVE with these fake succulents. I’ll be ordering more very soon. They look great, and I have so many places to use them!
I hope you enjoyed these campsite fairy garden ideas – it’s been a great way to stretch out our imaginations!
