Suitcase Fairy Garden

3 Materials
1 Hour

This is an easy idea for a fairy or miniature garden. Use an old suitcase!

I made this one in a vintage suitcase from the thrift shop.

Line the suitcase with plastic. If you are going to keep this outdoors, know that the weather will wear it down and you will need drainage holes in the suitcase.
Add a fairy if you like.
Add a fairy if you like.
And any furnishings that fit your theme.

Suggested materials:

  • Suitcase  (thrift store)
  • Fairy garden decor  (craft store)
  • Miniature plants and moss  (free in garden)

    What do you line the suitcase with? I know this is probably a dumb question, but I am new to this fairy garden hobby.
