My little girl loves fairies right now and so I thought it’d be fun to do a fairy garden outside this spring for her. However, it’s still be a little rainy, so I had a thought to do a DIY indoor fairy garden play mat. She loves it! she moves it around the house and pretends it is her little indoor garden spot. I even made some felt flowers to go around the pond that she can move around as she chooses. It’s such a fun little indoor garden while it’s cold outside.

- Felt – large green piece for the grass, blue for a pond and various other colors for flowers.
First you want to cut out your grass area. I would suggest placing your chosen fairy homes and other accessories to make sure it fit nicely. Then cut out a oval shape. Then cut out a small bean/oval like shape for the pond. You can hot glue it on or just leave it unglued. I left mine unglued so that my daughter can move it around as she so chooses.
Now for the flowers:
For this first one, cut a long piece of felt about 12 to 16 inches by 1 inch. Then on one side, cut slits into it all the way up.
Then roll it up from one side to the other.
Hot glue a circle piece of felt to the back to hold it all together. Here are some other different flowers you can make just cut them a little different. These next two start with felt circles and cut into spirals. Roll up and hot glue a circle on the back like the previous.For this flower, cut out scallops while doing spirals. This really took me about 1/2 hour to put together including rolling up the flowers. Such a fun DIY indoor fairy garden for all ages.
