DIY Fairy Garden Furniture: easy how to instructions to make a miniature twig pergola/gazebo/arbor for a fairy garden using twigs, glue, and paint.
Last week I gave you a tour of my Summer Deck Makeover, and a little sneak peek of our Fairy Gardens. Today I want to share how easy it is to make your own DIY Fairy Garden Furniture with this fun fairy garden pergola or arbor or gazebo. What ever you call it it sure is cute.
Fairy Gardens have become a fun little hobby, and this year I thought it might be cute to make a some mini fairy garden sized furniture. I settled on a fairy pergola / arbor / gazebo, to kind of match our large pergola in the back yard.
I was inspired by the twig houses I made here.
The Fairy Gazebo turned out so sweet, and it was really easy to put together.
- Sticks -I used some dogwood branches
- Glue -hot glue, or gorilla glue for a stronger finished product
- White Paint
How To Make A Fairy Garden Gazebo
Start out with some straight sticks and use your garden clippers to cut them to the right length pieces. I didn’t give you measurements because this really doesn’t need to be very precise.
First make one side of the gazebo structure, and then make the other side to match. I used hot glue here, but something like gorilla glue would make the finished gazebo even stronger.
You want to make your gazebo a little extra tall, so that you can push the posts into the dirt to secure it in your fairy garden. So keep that in mind when you decide on the height.
Once the sides are glued together, use two pieces the same length each to create the gazebo structure. You want to create the characteristic gazebo overhang on the ends.
Now for the fun part, cut about 5 or 6 pieces so that they will be a little longer for some overhang and evenly space them along the top.
Now paint with some white exterior paint, I gave mine a few coats.
I used my gazebo as the centrepiece of this little fairy garden. We added some birch rounds to make a patio underneath it.

I hope the fairies love it!
With a Fairy Garden Gazebo, life really is a party!
