When the nights start getting cool there’s nothing more relaxing than sitting around the warm glow of a campfire. Toasting marshmallows and making smores adds to the fun. Just because they live outside and are used to the cold winters, doesn’t mean the fairies don’t appreciate a little warmth as well. Consider adding a small fire ring to your garden. It’s really quite simple, takes only minutes and best of all, it’s free!
First off, gather some small stones and put them in a circle in your garden. They can be round or square, use whatever you can find. If you can find sparkly quartz rocks make sure to use those, fairies especially love them.
Next, gather some small twigs, cut or snap them about an inch long and add them to the fire ring. Larger twigs can be cut to length with pruning shears. Make sure to cut and stack a little stockpile of wood for your fairies. They will really appreciate it as they often don’t have access to the tools they need for cutting firewood. If you can’t find enough small twigs, feel free to use a small tea light candle in their place. Don’t worry about leaving matches, fairies can create a spark on their own.
Keep a close eye, you might spot the tiny fire in the evenings as the fairies warm themselves.
Any great tips for adding warmth to your fairy gardens no the weather is turning cold?
