Winter Wonderland Fairy Garden


A quick and easy winter fairy garden idea using a heirloom punch bowl. I started with the punch bowl used at mine and my husbands small wedding reception over forty years ago. I never use it, but I can't seem to do away with it.

I filled it with shredded snow, and put a shallow glass bowl on top to support the next step.

I added the tree, and added the other items on top of Styrofoam pieces for support.
Hoping I don't kill the tree! :)

After getting all the items in place, I added more shreds and iridescent snow.
Brrr, doesn't she look cold? :)

I love that this can be disassembled and stored at the end of the season. I hope you enjoyed this fairy garden idea!

    I absolutely love your fairy snow garden, so beautiful. I live in Australia and it would be lovely to make one for a nice change this Christmas, however, I have no idea what shredded snow or iridescent snow is, can you explain what it is or suggest something else that would suit? Thank you so much.

    Your fairy is gorgeous. Where did you find that one, with the touque?

      @Linda I bought it at factorydirectcraft.com, they have so many lovely ones! I loved how she's dressed.

    What is the white butter looking stuff in picture 5?

      Yes, it is pieces of broken up styrofoam from some packaging that came in the mail.
