Can you imagine the jingling sleigh bells, chilly snowflakes, and pine-scented wreaths? Have you started playing the holiday tunes on repeat? If you are feeling ready (or almost ready) for the Christmas season, you can bet that it is just about time to get your miniature garden into the holiday spirit. From seasonal miniature plants to winter-themed fairy houses and all the fairy garden accessories in between, there is so much to celebrate when it comes to planning your holiday miniature garden.
When you sit down to plan out your garden, you might want to think “outside the box” when it comes to making those extra-special seasonal updates. Over the years, the options for fairy garden accessories have expanded to include themes and color palettes beside the traditional, green and red details. As you plan and plant, consider these ideas for bringing some unique holiday magic to your very own miniature garden.
Sure, fairy gardens or miniature gardens involve miniature plants, but you can still create the look and feel of a towering, majestic forest in your backyard or container. Coniferous forests are especially apropos for the winter holidays since they are the perfect backdrop for Christmas miniature tree farms, ski slopes, and so much more. If you are thinking of creating a forest scene in your miniature garden, you will want to focus on colors like brown and green, which can give the garden a rich, warm feeling, even if the cold wind is blowing.
You might decide to pepper your mini forest with some special residents who are ready for the season. A jolly Christmas Bear could bring the fun, and a Christmas Door would strike an inviting look when leaned up against a fir miniature tree. If you are passionate about fairy gardens, do not worry—you can still have fairy fun in the forest. Friends like Fairy Ginger and Fairy Mikayla are dressed in their best woody, holiday-themed outfits featuring details like owls and Christmas miniature trees. They will fit right in your design plans.
If cooler colors and snowy chills are more your styles, you might want to lean in another direction, away from the forest. You can look to snow-filled slopes, jingling bells, sparkling lights, and even the shine of magical stars as you plot and plan a winter wonderland for your miniature garden. Consider pairing colors like white, gold, and light blue to build a garden that is inviting for all sorts of winter holidays.
Frozen tundra is nothing without a Snowman to bring some smiles and cheer. Whether you employ cotton balls, white pebbles, or a product like SnoWonder (instant artificial snow mix) to the design, you can pile up the “snow” and top with fairy garden accessories that will delight the senses. LED Light Strings are always a favorite for those long winter nights. Twist some around a Snow White Sleigh or white fence to create unique light displays. In addition to your usual fairy houses, you might consider adding a new miniature house or smaller building that matches your color scheme, such as a blue and white Holiday Fairy House or Holiday Fairy Church. No matter what, remember to keep the colors and theme consistent. You can make a forest, a snow-scape, or even a traditional red-and-green scene, but it is the consistency of your tones and subject matter that will make the miniature garden looked pulled together and indeed ready for the holidays.
