Teelie’s Fairy Garden knows how popular raising your own chickens can be. Perhaps you’re raising your own backyard flock, or you just love seeing and hearing about chickens. We’ve come up with a DIY for creating your own chicken-themed fairy garden. Fly along with us to learn more.
Select Your Container
Unless you are planning to make your fairy garden in a garden that already exists or perhaps a hollowed-out tree trunk or another natural spot, you’re going to need a container to get started. Since our fairy garden theme is all about chickens, we decided to go with this silver and black planter that reminds us of a water tub for animals. Learn more about it here.
Add Soil to Your Container
Once your container is selected, you’ll need to add dirt to your fairy garden especially if you plan on growing real plants in it. If you aren’t using real plants, then you have more options, such as filling the bottom of the container with foam, material, or wood to lift up your miniatures. We are sharing one type of dirt with you, but there are numerous varieties available. Find our selection here.
Include a Chicken Coop
A chicken coop is a must for a chicken-themed fairy garden. We love this adorable miniature coop. It has a cute sign on it that reads ‘country fresh eggs.’ You can place your chicken coop anywhere you like on top of the dirt in your fairy garden. Find it here.
Add Chickens to Your Coop
Now it’s time to add your hens to the chicken coop. You can either place them in the coop or around or near it. Allow your inspiration and creativity to run wild as you put together the chicken-themed fairy garden of your dreams. Your chickens could be wandering around the fairy garden nibbling on grass or smelling wonderful fragrant flowers if you’d like. See the adorable mother hen and her chicks that we found here.
Add Roosters, Friends, or Accessories
Now it’s your turn to choose some more miniatures for your fairy garden. You might want to add roosters, and friends for your hens or accessories. This fairy garden scene from the Farmer Jonathan instant fairy garden that was created by Teelie Turner offers all three options as you’ll find tools with dirt, a rack, shovel, and hoe which are perfect for use in a garden around the chicken coop. You’ll also meet a rooster and a bunny who cannot wait to spend time with you. Learn more here.

Add Succulent Plants
You can add some plants to your chicken-themed fairy garden. We love using succulents and since it is a chicken-themed fairy garden, we thought it was only fitting to choose hens and chicks as your succulents. They are a form of cactus. You can learn more about them here.
If you’d like, you can add some stones to the fairy garden. They can act as a fairy garden path or as water or grass for your fairy garden. We chose green stones as we liked the idea of having a grassy area in our fairy garden. More information about the stones we chose is available here.
Add at Least One Fairy
Since we are creating a fairy garden, we think that adding at least one fairy to your DIY chicken-themed fairy garden is a good idea. The fairy that we chose loves nature and animals and has a few accessories to bring along with herself including a bird bath, a pet bunny, and a pet squirrel. Complete details are available here.
