You probably know by now that I’m a big fan of fairy gardens. I really love making them, and I’m always so happy with how they turn out. Lately, I’ve been searching for inspiration for my next big fairy garden project, as a result, I found plenty of great fairy garden ideas!
27 Fairy House and Fairy Garden Ideas for Inspiration
I searched high and low for all of the best fairy garden ideas out there, and I was not disappointed. Not all of these images come with a tutorial, but they gave me inspiration all the same. In addition, there are plenty of opportunities for the kids to get involved too! I’m ready to start on the next one.
Enchanting Fairy Doors
I think it’s so charming when people decorate trees with small doors! It looks like actual fairies live in the trees. A couple of these fairy garden ideas went above and beyond with little paths and fancily shaped doors.
- This cute fairy door was made from craft sticks and comes from Danya Banya
- If you’re looking for a fun fairy door the kids will love to make, check out these from Fireflies and Mudpies
- Here’s another sweet fairy door made from craft sticks, making it a great kid’s craft from Messy Little Monster
- I was unable to find the direct source for this fourth fairy door, I’m guessing it was from a product catalog. This demonstrates how you don’t have to make everything yourself, you can purchase fairy garden accessories and create your own magic.

- I’m loving this simple under the stairs fairy door from My Weeds Are Very Sorry.
- This darling fairy door actually has a little deck and stairs, though I was unable to find the photo source.
- Again, this last one is most likely from a catalog as the door and windows are clearly purchased items not something that someone made. But they would be easy to make, don’t you think?
