Materials List

  • Mason jar (these smooth sided versions work best)
  • Fairy garden miniatures
  • Rocks (purchase or use from your yard)
  • Moss
  • Craft sticks
  • Brown ink
  • Clay or small wood bead
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue and glue gun


DIY Project Instructions

  1. We are going to start by making a fairy door. Determine how wide it should be using your craft sticks. Use hot glue to put them together with another craft stick across the back as shown below.

  2. Trim them to length and round the top with your scissors. Use the ink pad to stain the door brown. Add a small ball of air dry clay or a wood bead as a door knob with hot glue.

  3. Now you just need to assemble your fairy garden terrarium in your mason jar. Start by adding some rocks to the bottom and covering with moss. Add some moss up the back of the jar and place the door on that moss. Use hot glue to secure all objects. Tweezers or pliers may be helpful when reaching into the jar.

  4. Add miniatures of your choice to finish off the jar.

  5. You can then give this one to mom or keep it for yourself. It will look great in your spring or summer decor.
