This pixie picnic table is too cute, right? As you construct it, you can almost imagine yourself taking a seat with your fairy friends, enjoying the surrounding plants and passing around a pitcher of freshly squeezed honeysuckle nectar.

Knock, knock. Who’s there? Your crafty side is calling your name, fairy gardeners! These tiny doors are rustic and perfect for your fairyscapes. You can place them against wide bases of taller plants or in flowers themselves. Everyone can have fun pondering where these doors lead to. Magical rooms? Secret hideaways? Winter storage closets? Fairies need these things for sure.
BENCH THERE, DONE THAT

This darling bench looks fabulous when placed in the soil or pebbles that create your fairy path. A number of Pretmann’s fairy figurines are actually made in the sitting position, so placing one on this miniature seat would look lovely! It might encourage a new sprite to stop by for a little chat.
BRIDGE THE GAP

You’re probably already thinking of the perfect place in your fairyscape for this adorable, flower-adorned bridge. Perhaps you have a tiny pond or a blue creek among your plants, or maybe you simply want to add a bridge to your teeny walkway. You certainly can’t go wrong with this superb addition!
ONCE YOU GO ADIRONDACK, YOU NEVER GO BACK
Fairy-sized Adirondack chairs, anyone? Yes, please! You can leave these in their natural wooden color or paint them each a different color, creating a rainbow of seats for your little pixies! You could even circle them up, and with tiny lights and stones, make a fairy firepit huddle. What fairy wouldn’t want to join that warm and toasty fun?
THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
If you’re feeling really ambitious, you and your children might try making fairy houses. If everyone pitched in, you might even have a fairy village, complete with restaurants and shops. The ideas are limitless when you let your imagination run wild. To teach your kids about organization, you could let them sketch out the houses’ plans before building. Who knows? You might have some young architects on your hands.
Bonus: You could even make a fairy treehouse!
UNDER THE UMBRELLA

Layering popsicle sticks can lead to a gorgeous roof or a garden umbrella for your dainty ladies and gents. This makes the perfect mini escape for your sprites as seasonal rains push through. They can stop by for a break. Their wings get awfully damp in downpours.
MAKE A WISH
Your fairy garden is already growing to be so magical. Why not add a wishing well to the community? Grab a soup can and some cardboard for this one. And add your own unique flair to it with color, jewels, and glitter. Your pixies can pop in for a daily wish anytime they like.
It is best if this fairy furniture is kept indoors or outside under some sort of shelter. The rain, wind, and other elements might not be so kind to your creations.
Happy gardening, fairy lovers!
