My daughter has had a love for fairies since she was a little girl, so when I saw the sweet fairy garden supplies that are available at Consumer Crafts, I knew that we would have to create a sweet little garden for her room. I didn’t want anything large since it would be going on a shelf, so I chose an 8″ grapevine ball as the container. Today I’ll show you how to make your own fairy garden sphere.
I fell in love with this DIY Fairy House Planter idea recently and knew it would be the perfect base for our fairy garden sphere, though the ball can be a standalone garden piece if you wish. Want to make your own fairy garden sphere? Let’s get started!
Supplies needed to make your own Fairy Garden Sphere:
- 8 Inch Grapevine Ball
- Moon Lights LED Light Strand
- Preserved Green Sheet Moss
- Craft Spanish Moss
- Fairy Garden Supplies
- Craft Butterflies
- Gemstones Accents
Add in your fairy garden accessories. The swing I used is a tad big for the 8″ sphere so if you’re considering using it, I’d suggest going up a size or two on the ball. It does fit, but limit’s the amount of other accessories that can fit into the space. I used a dab of hot glue on the back of the stepping stones and blue gems to keep them in place.
Next, you’ll want to add in your fairy or make your own fairy out of clay like I did! I shared the video of the process on my site, seven thirty three. I also made some clay toadstools to add a splash of color.
My daughter lost her tooth shortly after we made her fairy garden so she left the treasure box with her tooth next to the garden on the shelf. The next morning she awoke to a note from the Tooth Fairy that said that she took a little break and used the swing! This MADE my daughters morning!
