A whimsical fairy garden that will fit in the palm of your hand. This teacup fairy garden adds the perfect amount of magic to any windowsill or shelf! Click here for a collection of easy fairy garden ideas that I put together for all seasons.
What kind of teacup works best for a fairy garden?
You can use any teacup that is water resistant as long as you aren’t worried about drainage. Succulents are a great option because they require very little water. You can also get away with using a tiny plant if you water it carefully. If you need to drill holes in the bottom make sure to use a drill that is accommodating for the material that you will be drilling through.
This teacup planter is about 2.5″ tall and 6.5″ wide. To keep the root system simple I decided to stick with slow growing plants; succulents. Because we used succulents we do not have to worry about drainage because succulents require very little water.
What accessories work best for a teacup fairy garden? It’s so small!
This 1/2″ gnome pick coordinated perfectly. I couldn’t pass him up. I also chose this tiny well to balance things out, and without making my garden cluttered.
What kind of potting mixture should you use for a teacup fairy garden?
I used a handful of a bag of potting soil. You can buy special potting mixtures for succulents, house plants, or anything that you decide to use in this planter.
Then I added a few rocks and a tiny bit of mulch to fill in any bare spots.
