How to Make a Winter Fairy Garden



  • Gather small twigs or bare branches for the winter fairy garden.
  • Trim bare branches to look like small winter trees.
  • Mold old playdough and place it in the back of the tray.
  • Plant twig trees upright into the playdough.
  • Fill the tray with Epsom salts.
  • Invite children to decorate the twig trees with pony beads.
  • Place the fairies and accessories to create a winter fairy garden scene.


Unlike most DIY fairy gardens, this winter wonderland small world does not require live plants or soil. Instead, invite children to decorate winter trees with pony beads and play in the Epsom salt snow!
