Fairy Garden ContainerYou can get creative with this. Old plant pots, clay cooking pots and even tin recyclables will do the trick. Since we are making a fairy garden with artificial plants, the container can be without drainage. If you’re looking to buy, check out this Galvanized Flower Container by Ashland. It is made with galvanized iron sheet and tin and gives off a rustic vibe. I think it’ll be a great start to stage any fairy scene you’d like.
Floral FoamFairy gardens with artificial plants don’t really need soil so most turn to floral foam. It requires zero maintenance and lasts a lifetime. There are also other options like this FloraCraft Styrofoam Block Flower Arranger. It is very lightweight and easy to cut into the size and shape you need. It also holds its shape pretty well. It’s a great option if you wish to use your fairy garden as a table centerpiece.
Ground StructureYou’ll also need something to cover your floral foam and serve as the ground. I used a combination in mine – pebbles, fairy grass and a slab of marble.
Fairy Garden Artificial PlantsThere are lots of choices when it comes to artificial plants that you can use for your fairy garden. I primarily used artificial succulents but also added some ferns and flowers here and there.
