Get creative with where you look for supplies! Most craft stores have good fairy garden sections now, but you can also find really fun things in the floral and miniature departments too.

Start by building a small layer of moss and rocks in the bottom of the jar. Make sure you leave enough room for the items you want to add in.

Cut an oval of sheet moss that is about the size of one side of the jar. Try to leave the edges rough so you don’t have a straight line of moss. Glue this to the back of the mason jar, then glue your door in place on that. Keep it as flat as you can on the back of the jar so you have room to add in a couple more fairy garden items.

Now you can get creative! I added a small toadstool table with a little teacup and saucer. It helps to have a small pair of tongs to add things in place. I also added a twig to the left side and glued a small bird to the branch of the twig.

For the smaller mason jar, repeat the steps but use less materials. For this one I added the moss sheet to the back, then glued a tiny fairy house to the rock at the bottom. I added small mushrooms around in the moss. These were tricky to get in and standing upright!
