Looking for a unique way to say “welcome” in your fairy garden? Need a weekend project outside among your tiny friends and flowers? More than likely, your little sprites already know you want them to make themselves at home among your plants, but a short and sweet note doesn’t hurt. Check out these 10 DIY welcome signs, and be inspired!
1. You’re going to “dig” this!

Have an old shovel around the shed? Maybe you’ve seen one at your local thrift store or antique shop. As you can see, this makes a creative welcome sign for fairies and human friends alike. Grab some paints, and brush on your own message!
2. Just a little hello…
How teeny and perfect is this fairy mailbox welcome? You can use felt, paint markers, and thin string to make this cutie. Even if you don’t have a mailbox in your fairy garden, you could hang this sign on a fairy door or stand-alone post.
3. “Wood” your fairies love this?
This wood-burned welcome sign makes for a fun project. If you’re new to wood-burning, you might absolutely love it and use it in a variety of places in your fairy garden. Some colorful paint and a finishing sealer make this great for outdoor use.
4. This welcome sign “rocks!”
Head out to your yard or the woods behind your apartment or home. Search for the perfect rock. The bigger, the better! We love this design, but we do recommend more color and, of course, a more personal touch. Mention fairies and gnomes! Welcome them in particular.
5. The fairies are coming very “spoon!”

This small spoon sign is just wonderful for your fairy garden. We like that it welcomes both fairies and elves! Because we’re always looking for household items to use in our fairyscapes, this just tickles the fairy fancy. When you’re finished with the welcome and design, stick it right down in the soil. Voila!
6. Once upon a time, in a land “jar, jar” away…

Dress up a classic wooden welcome sign with an old-fashioned canning jar. Your fairy family will adore this extra touch. The flowers you insert will make the place feel more like home. We’re not jar-king when we say this is the perfect traditional sign with a twist!
7. Chalk it up to magic!

This hanging wooden sign has been painted with black chalkboard paint. If you like to change your messages to your fairies regularly, this sign is for you.
8. It’s a “gate” idea, and you’re going to love it!
Sprinkle a little pixie dust over some popsicle/craft sticks, and suddenly, you have a fairy garden welcome gate. Honestly, though, some white paint and decorating skills go a long way. It’s so adorable! I want to open it and walk through myself.
9. The kind of sign that just “sticks” with you…

Use some sticks that you find in your yard to make this precious sign. You can have the kids help you find even more sticks and actually spell words using the twigs and branches. Personalizing the sign with your last name can be a unique touch. The fairy wings give this one a friendly, fairy vibe.
10. Go big, or go “gnome!”
Okay, okay: so this last one isn’t DIY. But it’s OIY. Order it yourself at Fairies Direct today! These two gnomes know how to welcome us into their world. And fairies can’t resist their charm. Also, don’t you just want to pet that fluffy bunny and hug that dainty hedgehog?
