A handmade fairy garden is the perfect gift for a special mom. And of course, every mom is special! Created with love, these fairy gardens are as much an artistic expression as a little bit of garden magic. 

Below you will find steps to help you:

  • Sprout your own herb seeds to plant.

These adorable gardens also make great gifts for grandmas, aunts, teachers and anyone else special in a child's life! We made one last year as a special end of the year gift for a wonderful teacher at my daughter's school.
