This secret succulent fairy garden would make a perfect gift for Mother’s Day or any other special occasion. Plus, it’s super easy to put together when you have the right tools!
A few weeks ago we were invited to a screening of Smurfs The Lost Village and boy did my kids love it! The movie took us through the story of Smurfette’s creation and her struggle with finding her unique talent. Since she was made out of clay and different from the other Smurfs, she grew sad and frustrated with her lack of being able to master one skill.
As the story unfolds, she and a few Smurf friends head off on an adventure that brings her to realize who she really is and the power she holds inside.
Well… my kids were quite inspired by the movie because as soon as we got home they wanted to create their own Smurf village in the back yard! The fun plants that came alive and the various creatures found along Smurfette’s journey were all they could talk about.
So I pitched a fairy garden but instead of fairies, we used Smurfs! And how perfect did it turn out? Plus? It was so easy for the kids to make!

Smurfette’s Secret Succulent Fairy Garden
What you’ll need:
- garden pot (we received ours from Personal Creations)
- a variety of succulents – tip: choose different heights and styles
- succulent soil mix
- sphagnum moss
- fairy garden accessories (we purchased at Michaels)
- Smurfette and crew
What you do:
1. Fill the pot with soil. Make sure to leave room to add the plants and some extra dirt in.
Tip: When planting succulents, use a succulent soil mix.
2. Play around with the varying heights of the succulents to see which ones would do well in what spot. Use your house or other details to figure out how much space you’ll need and where to actually plant the succulents.
We simply added them to the back of the pot so there was room for our house, our sign, and our Smurfette.
3. Add the final touches to your Smurfette garden by adding a house, making a pathway of sand, and adding some moss and rocks to the garden to complete the look. Then add the final touch: Smurfette!
Water when the succulents are dry and make sure they get a lot of sunlight!
This secret succulent fairy garden would make a perfect gift for Mother’s Day or any other special occasion! My kids can’t wait to gift it to one special lady in their lives.
