Designing A Winter Fairy Garden With Snow

When you grow up in the Midwest, it never even occurs to you that instant snow exists.

When you grow up in the Midwest, it never even occurs to you that instant snow exists. When I started planning a miniature garden for the Christmas holiday, I wanted to create something special for an aunt of mine who lives in Arizona. It is a state that infamously has absolutely no snow, which can be disappointing this time of year. When I started on my search for ways that I could add the fluffy white stuff to a garden as a holiday gift, I found this wonderful SnoWonder product that is not cold or wet and is fun to play with no matter what the weather is like outside. You just add water to the powder, and it explodes and expands into a pile of snowflakes. This product is beautiful, fun to use, and a one-of-a-kind thing to add to your newest miniature garden. In addition, little sprouts, our younger gardeners, can play with the artificial snow because it is non-toxic. SnoWonder is an entirely holiday appropriate ground cover to add to your winter themed miniature garden.

I know people from different states that do not have a white Christmas. Therefore, they have to celebrate their holidays with Christmas lights, trees, and mistletoe. In the Midwest, this would be considered a ‘brown Christmas,’ and they are exceedingly rare here. However, technology has made it possible that miniature gardeners who live in warm climates can add the fluffy, white, holiday accessories to their fairy gardens and decorate with wonderful instant snow. You may enjoy adding a winter cottage such as Holiday Fairy House that is white with a blue-shingled roof and drifts of snow sparkling on top. Each side of the door displays green bottlebrush trees that look festive with sprinkles of snow on their boughs. To personalize your Christmas trees use ribbons and lights as miniature accessories.

The very best way to finish off the holiday fairy garden is to add touches of snow that will provide a white ground cover to the mini scape. Add as much or as little as you need to create the look, you desire. You can have mounds of snow to give the illusion there was a blizzard the night before or a dusting of snow to make visitors to the miniature garden believe it is the beginning of winter. Imitation snow provides much personality in your garden when white fluffy snow surrounds the trees and fairy house.  Shovel a path to the gnome door, so visitors to the garden will believe a responsible garden fairy must live in the cottage. There are even miniature shovels you can lean against the house to imply that the fairy, living in the fairy house, left it there for easy access after the next snowfall.

With songs playing in the background and SnoWonder mixed for miniature garden decorating, your fairies will have a white Christmas. Happy Holidays!
