Fairy Garden Kit Favors
I have a confession to make- I love fairies and anything magical! It’s something I’ve loved since childhood and still continue to celebrate as an adult (if you don’t believe me, check out the fairy costume I made a few years ago).
I was super excited to help my friend Avery plan her 11th birthday party this year. She wanted a fairy garden theme using her favorite color, pink. In addition to the cucumber sandwiches and fairy cupcakes, we also made up adorable Fairy Garden Kits for her friends to take home and make their own fairy-friendly houses or mini gardens.
Fairy Garden Kit
Recipe Type: Craft
- Small package of moss
- Flower seed packets
- Miniature bottles of fairy dust
- A tiny mushroom
- “Fairies Welcome” sign
- Pink shells (found on clearance at Michael’s)
- Small terracotta pot
- Other ideas:
- Acorns, pebbles or seashells
- Tiny gnome/fairy figurines
- Other supplies:
- Pink chevron paper bags
- Small clear plastic sleeves
- Miniature glass bottles
- Pink glitter
- Custom labels & tags from Evermine.com
- Natural raffia filler
- Pink ribbon
- The first step is to prep the flower seed packets. I used pink mini chevron kraft bags decorated with a custom square label and filled each bag with a handful of wildflower seeds.
- Next add petal shape labels to small clear plastic bags (or any kind of bag or envelope). Fill with moss.
- Using a funnel, pour pink glitter into small glass bottles (mine are 22mm x 50mm). Add a custom label that reads, “Fairy Dust: Sprinkle lightly & make a wish”.
- Finally, make your own tiny sign that reads, “Fairies Welcome.” I used twigs and cardstock to make mine. I hand drew the words with a pink pen, added a touch of kraft glue to the edges and dipped them in pink glitter. Then used kraft glue again to attach the sign to the twig.
- Arrange everything together in a small terracotta pot and decorate with a ribbon and custom scallop tag from Evermine!

This is so pretty. What size is your pink chevron bags, as well did you just put a packet of seeds in this bag or did you have loose flower seeds in this bag?
Thank you kindly for your response.
Hi Jennifer! You can use a small bag for the seeds – roughly the same size as the packet they come in. We put loose seeds in this bag but if you expect them to fall out, you can place the packet of seeds in the bag.
Hope this helps!
Are you supposed to use potting soil also when putting together the garden? Also is the moss real or artificial?
Hi Lauren! Yes, you need to use potting soil when planting the seeds. The moss can be real or artificial!
Hope this helps!
These look amazing.. Is the moss artificial?
Hi Kristina! You can use either real or artificial moss.
What size terracotta pot did you use to hold everything? Thank You!
What size terracotta pot was used? Thank you
Hi Alexandra! Any small terracotta pot works, as long as the items fit. I recommend bringing the fairy garden items with you to the store so you can test them out.
Hope this helps!
