A window box is the perfect place for a small fairy garden. And it is easy, too! All you have to do is add a few fairy accessories to your flowers or plants and you can enjoy your fairy garden all year round.
I don't usually like to use artificial plants in my window box, but for the fall I decided to try it. I used leaves and an artificial plant along with pine cones and pumpkins to create an arrangement. Then, I added a fairy house and tucked one of my fairies on the front porch. I made a little wreath for the door and added a tiny planter.
Here it is:
