Paint your house and each of the FolkArt wooden surfaces you will be using. I used FolkArt Multi-Surface since my fairy garden is going to stay inside. Let dry completely.

Using FolkArt 3×3 Mini Stencils, apply some details to your house! These stencils come in every design you can imagine with so many darling fairy garden designs to make your project one of a kind. I loved adding these cute windows to my houses!

Measure and cut your patterned paper to match the size of wherever you’d like to add paper. I applied mine to the front of my houses and to one of the FolkArt wooden fences. Using Mod Podge, apply and seal the paper to the houses and fence. Let dry completely.

Once the house and fence are dry, attach the wooden surfaces you are using to your houses using hot glue.

If your planter is unfinished like mine was, paint it using FolkArt Multi-Surface or FolkArt Outdoor Apply two coats and let dry completely.

Once your planter is dry, it’s time to build your garden! I loved picking out plants that were a variety of sizes and colors to make it look really magical. (Plus, cacti and succulents are the hardest to kill, and since I’m going to need A LOT of fairy magic to keep a garden alive, using these kinds of plants are right up my alley.) Using your potting soil arrange and plant all of your plants.
