Fall decor is so much fun since the colors and textures provide endless inspiration! This fall indoor fairy garden also doubles as a non-traditional fall snow globe. Learn how to make it yourself in just minutes.
I love fairy gardens! They’re whimsical and beautiful and add a touch of fun to your decor.
I’ve made several, including my Mini Fairy Garden, Fairy Garden Terrarium in a Mason Jar, and Make a Fairy Garden with a Pool! Each one is special in its own way, and they all have a fun dose of character.
Today I have a new indoor fairy garden tutorial to share with you. It’s inspired by classic symbols of fall.
This fall snow globe is the perfect indoor fairy garden for the upcoming autumn season. Plus, it’s so easy to make! You will have your own adorable mason jar craft to add to your fall decor in just minutes. And it looks wonderful lit up next to my Simple Fall Fairy Light Luminary!
How To Make An Indoor Fairy Garden
I love crafts that come together easily, and this one is a terrific example. It’ll be ready in less than 10 minutes!
Here’s what you’ll need to complete this project. I’ve even included a few handy links to make it faster to find certain items.
- Mason jar – this size works best: Ball Collection Elite Wide Mouth 16Oz Pint Jars
- Vintage truck miniature
- Miniature pumpkins
- Leaves – I cut mine from card stock
- Hot glue and glue gun
This project is so quick and easy that I thought I would share the process in a short video. You can watch that below!
Fall Fairy Garden Instructions
So easy, right? If you can’t watch the video or missed some of the steps for this fall snow globe, follow along below.
Add moss to cover the entire bottom of your jar and hot glue into place.
Add a couple of pumpkins to the back of your truck and secure them with hot glue.
Then put the truck on top of the moss in the jar and secure it in place with hot glue.
Drop small leaves into the jar. Please note that these are easily made with yellow, orange, and red card stock.
Then screw the lid onto the mason jar.
Your fall snow globe is ready to display around your home.
Make this indoor fairy garden to add to your decor or give as a DIY gift. It’s easy to make a few of these in just minutes!
Do you have questions about this indoor fairy garden? Please check below to see if I’ve already answered it down below and leave it in the comments for me if you don’t see it.
How do you lay out a fairy garden?
This particular design doesn’t require much laying out because there aren’t lots of pieces. Start with your container, add the base (moss), then insert the truck and add accessories. Package it up with raffia and call it done.
If you choose to make a more complex design, follow the same general process until it looks the way you want it to!
How do I maintain this indoor fairy garden?
There’s nothing you need to do! Since nothing is alive inside the mason jar, there’s no need to water anything. I do recommend keeping your completed fall snow globe out of the sunlight, though, so the sun doesn’t fade the items inside.
