It’s time for our bi-monthly Dollar Store Design Squad project! I’m so ready for Spring, that I decided to do a tabletop fairy garden using dollar store items.
Be sure to check out Debbie and Jocie’s adorable projects at the bottom of this post.
Materials to make a small table top fairy garden
- 1 Small bunch of flowers
- Random Fairy Garden pieces
- River Rocks
- Small terrarium bow
- Picket fence (on hand)
- Potting soil (on hand)
Also pictured are some moss balls, but I ended up not using them.
Any soil will work
Add a small amount of soil to the small terrarium bowl.
Small assorted rocks
Arrange river rocks in a random pattern.

A picket fence or similar accessory adds character
Use wire cutters to snip the fence to size.
Silk flowers, succulents are great additions
The flower stems are easily snipped with the wire cutters.
It’s fun to arrange the items over and over until you get them must as you like. I chose the gnomes and small animals instead of actual fairies for my tabletop fairy garden.
The small terrarium bowl is plastic. You could also use a fish bowl or even some thrift store glassware. If your bowl is large enough, you could add succulents, real or faux. This is the first time I’ve made a fairy garden, but every time I look at it, it makes me smile. Those small river rocks are great for other craft projects. I used them to hold the greenery in my Repurposed Lamp Plant Stands.

What a fun project! I love our Dollar Store Project Months!
It’s perfect for my small patio table.
Debbie and Jocie found some fun things at their Dollar Store. When was the last time you browsed around your Dollar Tree store to look at all the fun things you can make?
