Walking in a Winter Wonderland: Another Way to Winterize Your Garden

Posted by


What does winter mean to a gardener?

The cold weather is here, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy your garden throughout the season. Winter gardening doesn’t have to only be about maintenance tips. Sure, you should pay attention to over-wintering your fairy garden or even bringing your plants in for the winter, but that doesn’t have to be the reality for every gardener. If winter is your favorite season, then you deserve to spend it outside with as much of your hobbies as possible -- and that includes gardening!

If you’ve ever wanted to turn your winter garden into a winter wonderland, Fairy Homes and Gardens has you covered. Check out these fun winter additions that will make winter gardening more play than work.

Fairy Aubrey and Her Snowman

Fairy Aubrey invokes a sense of nostalgia. If you need a few new pieces to really make your garden pop, this is a great place to start. Both Aubrey and the snowman are decorated in their winter best, so you’re almost guaranteed a stylish garden. Together they are 3 1/4" high x 3 1/4" wide x 2" deep.

Sisal Christmas Trees

Whether it’s the holiday season or not, nothing says winter wonderland more than scenic evergreen (or everwhite!) Christmas trees. This beautiful set of 9 can immediately transform your fairy garden into the white Christmas everyone is always singing about. It’s an instant moodmaker and the perfect piece de resistance!

Fresh Fallen Snow

If you live in an area that doesn’t have frequent snowfall, fear not: Fairy Homes and Gardens is here to help. The weather shouldn’t completely dictate how much of a winter wonderland your fairy garden deserves, which is why artificial snow is sometimes the best way to go. It’s flame-resistant and recyclable at the end of the season.

Fairy Boy on the Toboggan

Get into the winter spirit right with this picturesque tobogganing boy. Nothing says winter more than a group of kids going down a hill on sleds. Bring that same energy to your fairy garden with this and similar pieces showing kids being kids out in the snow!

Frozen Ice Pond with Cardinal

What’s a winter wonderland without a quintessential skating pond? Let your fairy garden miniatures gather around the pond for an annual skate. This piece is a great way to tie in your winter wonderland scene. The tiny red cardinal will delight the fairies in your display.
