6. Rustic Christmas Fairy Cottage
This miniature fairy house from hearth and twig fairies bursts at the stitchings with pixie dust and fairy magic! I think the fairies also enjoy the cozy feel – I bet it keeps them warm during the cold winter nights!
The fairy house makes genius use of garden materials to add a rustic feel to the cottage. Why not send the kids for a scout around the yard to see what building materials they can come up with – perfect!
7. Solar Light Christmas Fairy Garden
These fairies are jolly and eco-friendly! It isn’t Christmas without fairy lights, and even a fairy garden deserves some twinkly sparkles! Solar LED wire lights are an easy way to bring some light into your Christmas fairy wonderland.

These mini Christmas trees can transform your ordinary fairy village into a wintry Christmas fairy village! They're also one of the best ways to expand your miniature holiday village!
9. Festive Wreath Fairy Garden
Here’s one of my favorites! This design is for a spring wreath, but a few festive tweaks instantly turn it into a Christmas version! Add some fake snow, glitter, candy canes, and tiny presents, and voila – a festive fairy wreath!
10. Miniature Terrarium Christmas Fairy Garden
Maybe you’ve had enough of fake snow and glitter everywhere already? Keep your Christmas fairy garden safely contained in a beautiful terrarium! And, when the festive season is over, you can change your theme throughout the seasons.
I also think the miniature terrarium is perfect if you’re bored and want a fun art project for your kids. Check out more details on the Be a Fun Mom blog.

So cool! A secret Christmas garden nestled within a fairie oak! After spending time around this majestic Fairie hideaway – it’s easy to see why gumdrop-loving and star-dust-laden pixies call this Christmas garden home!
Why not create a magical woodland trail with hidden doors for your festive fairies to hide behind!
12. Teacup Christmas Fairy Garden
Running short of space? We all know how cramped it can feel during the holidays, with toys, presents, food, and the tree taking over our houses! This delightful teacup Christmas fairy garden is tiny enough to sit on a shelf or as a cute table decoration.
13. Winter Wonderland Fairy Garden
This Christmas-themed fairy garden is jaw-droppingly incredible! The time and effort put into this garden creation have paid off!
14. Christmas Grotto Fairy Garden
Often, I’ve wondered how fairies avoid getting lost at night – especially during a thick winter snowstorm. But after witnessing this eloquently well-lit fairie garden from haymeg, it’s easy to see how they find their way!
How adorable is this little Christmas fairy grotto! I love the simple but effective ideas used in this display, such as the picket fence made with twigs and garden wire.
15. Snow Globe Christmas Fairy Garden
Making a snow globe might sound complicated, but all you need is a mason jar and some glitter! The fairy garden sits on the lid, just waiting for the snow to fall when you give it a shake. Very cute!
