Put a twist on the classic fairy garden, and create a garden for leprechauns instead. To get the look, line the insides of two small wood planters with plastic wrap, and secure with tape around the top rims. Fill the bottom of each planter with a handful of small river rocks for drainage, then stack the planters to create visual appeal. Fill planters with lush green plants, and lightly water the soil before covering with moss.

Leprechaun Garden Details

Leprechaun Garden Details

According to Irish folklore, leprechauns enjoy living in seclusion and are attracted to areas where they can bury their many treasures away from prying eyes. To create the ideal leprechaun retreat, surround a miniature fairy cottage with lush green plants, moss, river rocks and, of course, a pot of gold.

What You'll Need:

For this project, you'll need two small wood planters, fresh mood moss, clear plastic wrap, small river rocks, floral tape or clear tape, miniature fairy garden accessories, faux gold gems and five to seven small green potted plants in a variety of shades and heights. Line the insides of both planters with plastic wrap, and secure with tape around the top rims. Fill the bottom of each planter with a handful of small river rocks for drainage, then stack the planters to add depth and interest. Create a custom design by staging plants and garden accessories before planting. Once you've achieved the desired look, remove plants from pots, loosen the roots and plant, filling any empty space with potting soil. Lightly water the soil before covering with moss and adding leprechaun garden accessories.
