Fairy Garden Love and the Fairy Hobmother

Fairy gardens seem to be a hot thing right now.  My sister and I were talking about creating one for my Gram this season.  They are adorable, miniature and magical gardens designed to attract fairies.  So, it was quite fitting when I was contacted by The Fairy Hobmother himself!

Who is the Fairy Hobmother?


You may have seen other bloggers talking about the Fairy Hobmother.  His name is Matt, and when he is not traveling around the blogosphere spreading light and joy, you can find him at is fairy overlords, Appliances Online.  He is also on Twitter @Fairyhobmother.   His mission is to show appreciation to us bloggers.  He finds us all by visiting our comments on other blogs.  That means if you would like him to visit you, you should leave a comment on this post!  😉

Fairy Gardens

I literally spent about 3 hours the other night obsessing over fairy gardens.  From Google images to Pinterest, there are impressive pictures to enjoy.  I would just love to have one of these mystical areas.  This is a project that will be perfect for my sister and I to do with my Gram.

Gram loves to garden.  She has always had the most beautiful and impressive landscaping on the block.  Due to age and a recent stroke, she can’t do as much as she used to.  Believe me, that will not stop her from trying!  So, if we give her a project like this, with tiny details to get involved with, it will help occupy her time and need to care for plants.

These fairy gardens can be in any size.  From just a simple potted plant arrangement, to an entire section of a yard to create a village… The project can be as big or small as you would like!  I will keep you posted on what we come up with!

Do you believe in fairies?

  1. What a fun idea, I love that! Super cute! What a sweet idea to help out your Gram with this, sounds like a fabulous project!

    Yay Fairy Hobmother has struck again! Too fun!

  2. I saw little fairy homes at the Renaissance festival and thought..what a great project for my daughter and I! Then Maybe the Fairy Hobmother will come stay with me at http://couponsandfriends.com!

  3. Oh wow, I love that fairy garden! My mom would absolutely love it for her garden. She was just showing me some pictures of fairy gardens from her gardening club.

    I would love a visit from the Fairy Hobmother! 🙂 http://amomhavingfun.com

  4. How do you even make those fairy gardens? Do you buy them pre-made or literally make them? It looks amazing.

    • There are kits you can purchase. Also many separate little pieces I found on amazon.com. Then just arrange plants, moss, and other greens to create a little magical place. 🙂

    I too have seen so many cute fairy gardens! I would love to add them to our garden

  7. Congrats on the visit!

    I have wanted to make a clay or polymer, to put out in my garden for a while now. I don’t know, but I think these are super cute! I have to actually sit down and plan one out, and my girls and I can make it a weekend project.

  8. My daughter would love to have a fairy garden in our yard….but my son would probably try to dismantle it 🙂

  9. I would LOVE a visit from the Fairy Hobmother! Won’t he come visit me? 🙂
