Secrets to Attracting Fairies to Your Garden
1. Give the fairies a way to see themselves.
Fairies like to see themselves and why wouldn’t they? They are cute as can be. Place a few shiny dimes in the fairy garden so your fairy has a mirror to glance at herself in. She will want to be sure she looks just so at all times.
Fairies love their pets so be sure to make they know their pets are welcome. Add this Unicorn Fairy Garden to invite them in.
2. Make the garden smell sweet.
Fairies have very sensitive noses and love sweet smells. Be sure you use sweet smelling plants. If you wish you can also add a few drops of vanilla extract or vanilla oil to the garden to make it smell sweet and delicious.
3. Fairies love to snack.
Fairies love to snack on all sorts of treats, but fairy bread is their favorite. Sprinkle a small piece of bread with cake sprinkles and place it in the garden for them to dine on when their sweet tooth hits.
4. Provide hiding spots.
Make sure your fairy garden has some small cracks and crevices for the fairies to hide out in. Should they want to take a nap or just get away from everything, it will be the perfect place for them to slip into.
5. Invite their friends.
Add a shallow dish of sugar water to attract butterflies to the fairy garden. Fairies will love having their colorful friends stop by for a visit! You can also put any lady bugs you find in the fairy garden. They are all sure to enjoy each other’s company.
6. Provide them with a pool.
Fill a milk cap with water so your fairies have the perfect pool to cool their feet off in. The milk cap is the perfect size for the fairies to hop in and relax.
7. Provide rest for tired wings.
After flying all day, fairy wings can get tired. Put a few feathers in the fairy garden for the fairies to take a nap on. They love a comfy, soft bed.
8. Magic dust always helps.
Sprinkle some glitter on your fairy garden to help attract the fairies flying overhead. The moon will reflect on the glitter at night, and they can easily find their way to it no matter how dark it is outside.
