Outdoor Fairy Garden Houses – An Introduction
Outdoor fairy garden houses are one of the key things to have in your garden if you want attract fairies into it.
The other thing you must have is a fairy door which acts as a portal between their world and ours.
Outdoor garden fairy houses are small structures built with love by the inhabitant of the main house. They do this so that the fairies they attract into their garden will have somewhere to live and stay.
Some families might make large fairy garden houses, almost mansions. Others might make a miniature garden fairy house for a single fairy visitor to live in.
Sometimes they are actual houses which go on the ground and sometimes they are fairy tree houses.
Making an outdoor fairy garden houses allows children an opportunity to go outside and connect with the garden world. This helps to generate within them a care for the environment and a respect for its protection.
However, it’s a fairly big job to build a garden fairy house! You need to think about how it would look and perhaps even draw it. Then decide on the materials you would use and go out and find them. Not every family has the time or creative talent to work it all out and create a fairy garden house that would actually work.
So if you haven’t got the time or the talent, you can buy one ready made. Put your effort into deciding the best place to put it, and what things you want around it. With the love you put into it, you can still attract a fairy into your garden even if you haven’t made it yourself.

Solar Fairy House Collection
Instead of being happy with setting up a single outdoor fairy garden house, why not go one further and set up a whole village of outdoor fairy garden houses with these four different and delightful enchanted garden fairy houses. Or get them to enlarge an existing collection.
Firstly there is the Village Log Fairy House.
This is 22 cm high x 19cm wide x 14cm diameter.
Secondly there is the Log Fairy House
This is 18 cm high x 19cm long x 14cm deep.
Thirdly there is the Mushroom Fairy House.
This is 21 cm high x 16cm diameter.
Fourthly, there is the Boot fairy house.
This is 22 cm high x 15cm diameter.
These fairy houses are made from resin and are intricately detailed.
They contain three warm white led lights which come on automatically at dusk, powered by a rechargeable battery charged up by a solar panel.
Together, they create a great focal point in your garden or inside your house.
Miniature Fairy Garden Tree House
This miniature fairy garden mushroom treehouse would be a great addition to any self respecting fairy garden.
Although it’s a miniature fairy garden ornament, at 15cm tall it’s actually quite big. It is so tall because it’s ‘built’ on a hill and needs a number of steps to allow you to access the front door.
Fashioned in the shape of a mushroom, there is a taller mushroom with a bright green cap that is the main house. The steps lead up to the front door which is a lovely brown colour.
Above the front door is a bedroom that stands out with its own little red cap and window looking out to the garden.
At the top of the stairs there is another smaller building and I’m not sure what it is. It can’t be a garage so I’m assuming it’s an outside loo. Still, that won’t matter if your fairy garden is inside but it might be a little cool for the fairies if you arrange it in the garden!
It is made from polyresin so would be okay outside as well as inside.
Measuring 15cm high x 8cm wide x 8cm deep, this is a quality product, rich in detail that marks it out as an ideal present for any fairy lover building their fairy garden.
But perhaps fairies aren’t your thing? The other favourite garden ornament is gnomes, and I have plenty of those!
It would be great to hear your thoughts on this post.
