How to Achieve a Rustic Fairy Garden Look

Bringing the countryside look to your fairy garden is as easy as 5 steps!

Fairies are nature spirits, making rustic fairy gardens a perfect habitat. But just how do you bring on the countryside vibe in your fairy garden? Here are 5 easy ways.

Make your ground cover green or brown.

Mimic the earthy colors of rural living by making your fairy garden ground cover green, brown or a mixture of both. Patches of soil, a good creeping plant that grows low and even rocks or pebbles in warm tones, are all good options.

Add trees to your fairy garden.

The countryside is full of trees, so your fairy garden should at least have one too! Look for bonsai trees or fashion hard, low-growing shrubs to become one.

Opt for country-inspired fairy garden houses.

Making this type of fairy house the focal point of your fairy garden will most definitely set the countryside tone without much effort. The thing is, most fairy houses are quite pricey so if you have the skills, you can put-together your very own fairy garden house – country style – and still achieve the rustic fairy garden look without much costs.

Have a water feature in your garden.

A mini lake, an imaginative re-creation of a river or even a creek, will make your fairy garden look even more rural and even more inviting to fairies!

Go for fairy garden furniture that’s made of wood and/or natural materials.

The rougher, the better, and we mean that literally. Sofas and chairs made from twigs are pretty much what we’re talking about here but if you don’t have the luxury of time, you can buy rustic fairy garden furniture that’s just as fantastic, like the ones below.
