Creating and maintaining a garden is a gift that keeps on giving. Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, a garden can be relaxing and beautiful. They can range from functional to decoration, and everywhere in between. If you are an avid cooker, you can start a herb garden inside your kitchen. If you are a creative and enjoy the outdoors, you can start a garden in your yard that holds all your favorite colorful flowers. Whatever type of garden you maintain, there’s no doubt it will be pleasant to the eye. CutRateCrafts.com offers many supplies, accents, decorations, and supplies to fit your needs.

Once you have done your proper research and have a well-maintained garden, you will probably want to take the next step: decorations! Of course, the first decorations that come to mind when thinking of gardens is a gnome or fairy theme. Gnomes and fairies are mythological creatures that are famously known for inhabiting woodlands. They are tiny little beings that are tied closely with nature. An easy and modest decoration that can turn your garden into a mysterious home for mythological nature creatures is a small wooden door or bridge! Check it out here.
Create an entire miniaturized village within your garden. The flowers and plants will act as trees and cover. Just add small houses, because gnomes need somewhere to live! But, of course they do not live in ordinary homes. Use small tree stumps or overturned terracotta pots as their little houses. Hollow out the stump (which can be real or fake) and simply add a small door. Or place a door in front of a terracotta pot. Include a wishing well in the middle of the small village. And don’t forget to add street signs so the gnomes can maneuver around their town! To go a step further, add small tools, wheelbarrows or bikes, too. It all adds realism to your gnome garden. You can use wooden doors to create a unique look. If you add some ivy around the frame, you have a great DIY garden project.
If a fairy garden is more of your style, you are in luck! Gnome gardens and fairy gardens are similar. You can use a lot of the same small model details and accents for your decorated garden. But a problem I often run into is creating a beautiful garden, adding my decorations, but then noticing the bottom of the garden looking plain. I have found the perfect solution: moss! There’s a plethora of moss varieties, and they can easily be found online. You can use them as makeshift bushes, trees, or lawns. Take a handful and ball it up to create a small hill. You could even add a door to the hill of moss to make a more nature-looking home for the fairies or gnomes. A simple bag of moss can be exactly what your garden needs to turn it from average to enchanting! Spanish Moss is what I use to create small bushes and vines and overgrown shrubs for fairies to play in and enjoy in their new DIY habitat. Get yourself a bag here!
