Adding Warmth to Your Fairy Garden

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!

Adding Warmth to the Fairy Garden

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?

    I love making fairy gardens. They help me calm down after a stressful day of school work.

    A hot mug of coffee, hot chocolate, or tea is always a good way to keep warm. Perhaps, leave a few mugs and pot out for the fairies :)

    I am a grandmother of 8. I bought 3 gardens and put them together with the grand kids. We love them. It is magical and can always make me smile. I travel every week for work and they are my stress relief when I get home. Thank you for the ideas

    A little mini camp fire will do the trick, or mini cups and a fairy tea party. We have a lovely mini tea pot w a beautiful fairy on top. Lovely products.

    What a great idea! Colorado fairies would truly need a camp fire to stay warm during the winter.

    Wow! My daughters would love fairy gardening – and so much better for Christmas than a bunch of plastic junk.

    For warmth, I would think a little lap blanket for a chair or two wouldn’t go amiss.

    I can’t wait to do this for my fairies. The nights are getting cold and they need a place to gather and warm up their tootsies before bed.

    Ohhh how I’ve always wanted to make a fairy garden… I’m going to make it my goal once I finish my side yard to make a little fairy village tucked away amongst some ferns and stone. Imagine the possibilities!
    I will definitely be using this site as a guide and reference for plants!

    I have a niece who would especially love these. She’s very imaginative, and fairies are one of her preoccupations. Last Christmas I made her a fairy skirt and bought a pair of costume wings to go along with it. I should look into this for this year.

    I thought of a fire ring and want to put some ashes in the middle under the logs. Thanks for the picture, inspired to get it done for the fairies before winter sets in.

    Such a cool idea, can’t wait to try it and if you add a drop of your favorite essential oil to the “wood” it adds another element to the “fire”.

    I have some disabilities and when all 4 nieces all under 6 ,my 6 year old nephew and my 11 year old son come together it can be a challenge to enjoy everyone together between age gender and health differences. Well the Fairy garden is the most wonderful way to bring us all together where everyone is enjoying what they are doing and enjoying each other. I have also included so many important life lessons about nature faith hard work just to name a few. I hope we can build on this family foundation for generations to come.
