A DIY Fairy Garden

Easy DIY Bunny Fairy Garden Idea for Indoors

This little DIY Easter Bunny fairy garden for indoors can be whipped up in no time.  You don’t need to get dirty and its very safe for children to do, and its a fun Easter tween craft idea as well..  There is no hot glue gun needed just some tape and toothpicks so let the munchkins join you in crafting this.

Fairies love the wide open air, so instead of placing this fairy garden inside a cloche, it contains a miniature teacup setting inside a birds nest.

In the interests of time and a more than average brown thumb, this fairy garden is made of faux everything.  The inspiration for it was a little moss covered bunny I found in my stash.  He reminded me of what a fairy Easter bunny would look like so I ran with the idea.  I think he is just beyond adorable.

The next stop was to Michael’s fairy and succulent section, where I found the moss rocks and some fairy miniatures. If you want to make it an Easter Bunny DIY fairy garden make sure to find a little moss Easter Bunny, and some miniature Easter egg treats that you can scatter through it for a miniature Easter egg hunt.

How to Make the Easter Fairy Garden

To make one of your own you will need.

Large faux nest

Pretty teacup

Tiny fairy and tiny fairy accessories

Moss covered Styrofoam rabbit

Moss covered Styrofoam stones (mine has succulents)

Pretty teacup

Various moss-covered stones

Faux ivy vines

DIY Fairy Garden Easter Arrangement Tutorial

Place a bed of moss in your nest.

Wrap ivy around the outside of the teacup and attach with tape at the bottom.  Place your teacup and saucer in the basket.

Place a toothpick into the underside of your Styrofoam bunny to stabilize and then place him near the front of the teacup.k

Display some moss inside the teacup and add your fairy and her accessories.  I love this tiny set because it even has a little tea service on top of the table.  I love how it snuggles inside turning the teacup into a little covered patio.g

Finish your display by adding moss and greenery to camouflage any areas that don’t look natural.

Finally add the Easter eggs, because it can’t be an Easter bunny centerpiece without eggs, can it?

  1. Leanna you are the Queen of the Fairy gardens! This is really adorable. All that green grass, it certainly will bring spring and Easter up to your neck of the woods.

      I know that I whine about the weather too much, but this time of year truly is hard. We have a big snowstorm coming for the next few days and its -18C lows which is about -1F. It is very tiresome, especially when blogging and seeing all the fresh new yard posts. The fairy garden does make a difference, Hubs actually noticed it this morning and commented that it was a nice comparison to what was out the window lol.

  2. This is just adorable! I love that it’s an indoor fairy garden, we just finished some kid friendly versions ourselves. It’s nice to create them and not have to worry about watering or upkeep.

  3. Leanna, you are so talented! I am in love with this and the little moss bunny is too cute!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Michelle. Thank you, aren’t those moss covered baby rabbits adorable. This Easter I have had my eye out for some ornamental lambs as well. Now it needs to warm up for us and we can really enjoy Easter.

  4. Ahhhhh, you know me and fairy gardens. I love what you did Leanna. Its so adorable. It really does look like the little fairy sneaked found a tea cup in the garden and decided to turn it into her little secret space away from the baby fairies. It’s lovely

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you Michelle. I was going to do a teacup in a cloche, but changed my mind as I think faeries would prefer the open air. You live in the perfect habitat for faeries, and of course you make so many gorgeous faerie crafts. I secretly wonder if there are any.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you Marie. I originally had no plans for a fairy garden this year, but then I came across that little rabbit. I appreciate the pin very much.

  5. Oh my goodness, that is such a cute fairy garden Leanna. The bunny is so adorable and fits right in. Lovely idea of making it indoors this time of year!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I have a larger fairy garden that I create for out in the yard on the deck, but it’s much too early to plant it, so this is a nice indoor alternative.

  6. Leanna,
    I’ve always wanted to create one of these and I absolutely love your fairy garden!!! Also, thank you for joining our fun blog hop!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

  7. This is one of the cutest fairy gardens I have ever seen. It is so colorful and fun!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you Michelle. It was lots of fun to put together, I always enjoy creating fairy anything. I need to do more of it.

  8. LeannaForsythe says:

    Thank you very much Debra. I had boughten a birds nest that I hadn’t used yet and when I saw the little bunny I knew exactly what I wanted to make with him.
