Why is everything so much more exciting in miniature form?! I could lie and say that I like to make doll house things and fairy gardens because my girls love it, but the truth is that I love minis just as much (if not more!) than they do. This Fall fairy garden wreath is an ode to all things mini, and it’s a craft that both you and your kids will enjoy creating! Want more DIY Fall wreath inspiration?

Make sure to buy a few of these little deer, because your 5 year old might keep prying them off your Fall fairy garden wreath and hiding them in her room. This is experience talking.

Here’s how to make this Fall fairy garden wreath:

Supplies:

  • round galvanized metal tray (I found mine at Michaels)
  • dried wheat (I found mine in a field!)
  • floral foam
  • glue gun
  • egg shaped moss balls (Michaels) or a sheet of moss (real or faux)
  • desired miniature decorations (I used a deer, tree, fence and mushroom)
  • faux eucalyptus stems
  • faux sunflower
  • acrylic paint (if you need to paint the tree like I did)


Fall Fairy Garden Wreath Tutorial

First, cut the floral foam with a serrated knife to fit inside the bottom 1/3rd of the tray like this. Then, glue some wheat stalks to the foam with a glue gun as shown above.
