DIY Beach Fairy Garden

Beach Fairy Garden

I have made fairy gardens with my kids before, and this time I decided on a garden for a friend.  The beach theme was for someone who loves visiting Cape Cod.

I decided on half beach and half succulent garden.

For the beach portion, I used:

~ Adirondack chair set with table

~ white picket fence

~ beach sand

~ beach umbrella

~ blue glass (for “water”)

I did place the sand on top of some plastic, to prevent it from mixing too much with the dirt.

I thought the chairs were a cute set, since my friend goes with her boyfriend of many years to the beach.  We also bought an assortment of mini shells to sprinkle on the beach and placed a starfish on the table.

For the succulent part of the garden, I used:

~ potting soil

~ a variety of three small succulents

~ a portion of picket fence leftover

~ a “Crab Shack” sign

You can, of course, situate your garden however you like!

    This is really cute! I’ve been thinking about doing my own fairy garden, but haven’t done it yet. I really like this half beach, half garden idea.

    How fun, I really loved the way the beach with shacks turned out to be. Would love to replicate the same with my sun and have some beaching fun:)

    I’m planning on creating a beach scene for my Fairy Garden in a birdbath. Your idea with both beach and succulent is great. When making a succulent garden, would I have to drill holes in the birdbath (it’s heavy duty plastic) in order for excess rain water to go through?

      I would definitely make sure you have good drainage for succulents. You want the soil to be able to dry out in between waterings. I guess it depends too if you are in a warmer climate or if the birdbath is outdoors. That’s such a neat idea!
