10. Sign That Says It All
To really nail the aesthetic on the head, you can include a wooden sign that points the way to said fairy garden.

12. Authentic Wreath with Flowers and Moss
If you’re interested in your wreath looking more authentic and organic as though you picked it up off of the ground, then you may want to consider this idea.

13. Flourshing Flowers and Wooden Sign
Some of the best wreaths are those that don’t quite look like a wreath but clearly are. That’s what this wreath manages to accomplish with its flourishing flowers and leaves. There’s a lot of movement in this wreath that makes it look as the vegetation sprouted in this formation organically rather than was made. The wooden sign offers warm greetings.
14. Toadstools and a Happy Gnome
In keeping with some of the more popular fairy garden motifs is this wreath with an abundance of toadstools.

17. Wooden Wreath with Fairy and Moss
The beautiful and flowering fairy takes center stage in this wreath. She floats above the mossy green at the bottom of the wreath and offers her protection for your garden.
