If I were to make a “Top 10 cutest nursery ideas” list, fairy nurseries would have to be somewhere near the top. They emphasize tiny decor items like fairy dolls and mushrooms, vibrant colors, a whimsical feel, and, to top it off, a touch of nature. It’s the perfect environment to inspire your little one’s creativity and imagination.
Sometimes nursery themes can be easier said than done, though. That’s why today I’m going to be exploring some fairy nursery ideas to help you out. Let’s get started!
1) Fairy Lanterns
These fairy lanterns serve as both nightlights and decor. Since they’re solar-powered, you can simply put them under a sunny window to charge them and have them ready when needed. They would make great decor items for a shelf or a dresser with empty space. You can buy these lanterns from Amazon.
2) Fairy Jewelry Box
Tiny jewelry boxes like this one can work as both decor items and little memento boxes. You can keep your baby’s wristband from the hospital or a baby ring or bracelet if you have them. You can buy this jewelry box from Amazon.
3) Fairy Wall Hanging DIY
Sometimes the best things are made of the simplest materials. This wall-hanging DIY is made mostly of paper and cardboard, but it looks so cute. It’s perfect for adding a pop of color to your nursery’s walls to make the room stand out.
4) Fairy Door Sign
You might think that nursery decor is only on the inside of the nursery, but with door signs, you can make your decor cohesive inside and out. It’s also a great way to distinguish your little one’s nursery from other rooms in your home if you have guests or babysitters over. You can buy this fairy door sign from Amazon.
5) Fairy Glass Ball
This beautiful glass ball makes for a stunning decor item. Since it’s clear and silver, it will match your fairy-themed nursery no matter what color scheme it is. Plus, since it’s small, you can still decorate the space even if you don’t have a ton of room for decorative items. You can buy this fairy glass ball from Amazon.
6) Fairy Wall Decals
I’m always a big fan of wall decals since you have a lot of options when it comes to placement. You could spread the decals out over nearly the entire wall for an eye-catching display, keep the decals to one side, or even do something in between. The sky’s the limit on this one. You can buy these decals from Amazon.
7) Fairy Wall Art
If your fairy nursery’s walls are looking a little plain, that’s a good sign you should get some wall art. Colorful wall art like this can make a bold statement and allow your walls to stand out even if they are painted a neutral color. You can buy this fairy wall art from Etsy.
8) Gemstone Fairy
Gemstones are great for adding a natural element to your little one’s nursery decor, and what better way to incorporate them than with these cute gemstone fairy carvings? You can buy these carvings from Etsy.
9) Colorful Fairy Wall Art
One of the best things about fairy nurseries is how colorful and whimsical they are, and you can bring out that aspect with colorful fairy wall art like this. Due to the small size, it would look lovely above a shelf or narrow dresser. You can buy this colorful fairy wall art at Amazon.
10) Fairy House Storage Box
This cute little fairy house storage box comes with many possibilities. You can put fairy lights or LED candles in it to make a nightlight. You could also use it to store mementos. It would also be cute paired with other items like fairy dolls to make an indoor fairy garden. No matter what you decide on, this is a charming piece of decor with boho vibes thanks to the rattan construction. You can buy this storage box at Amazon.
11) Fairy Garden Furniture Set
This fairy garden furniture set would look cute alongside other fairy decor items like fairy houses, fairy dolls, and more. The fun thing about it is that you have the creative freedom to arrange it however you’d like and add as many items as you’d like to for a perfect fairy-themed nursery display. You can buy this fairy garden furniture set from Etsy.
12) Mushroom Fairy Lights
Fairies are often associated with mushrooms based on old tales about them. For example, some people believe that stepping in the middle of a ring of mushrooms (a fairy ring) will transport them to the world of fairies.
These tales continue to appear through fairy decor, with fairy gardens and nurseries often having mushrooms in them. One way to incorporate mushrooms is through these mushroom fairy lights, which are not only cute but also serve as some ambient lighting. You can buy these mushroom fairy lights from Amazon.
13) Mushroom and Hedgehog Fairy Garden Accessories
Something else you can add to your fairy-themed decor is this lovely little hedgehog and mushroom set. The small size makes them easy to display almost anywhere, and they look super cute. You can buy this set from Amazon.

15) Fairy Garland
This beautiful fairy garland is great for adding a decorative touch to the wall behind a crib, to the underside of shelves, or even by itself on a blank wall. You can buy this fairy garland from Etsy.
16) Fairy Pond
With the frog sitting and reading a book, this fairy pond has a whimsical look that will feel right at home next to your other fairy-themed decor. You can buy this fairy pond from Amazon.

Pom pom fairies are popular crafts since the end results are absolutely precious. They’re sure to make vibrant and colorful accents wherever you decide to place them, whether on a shelf or otherwise.

Metal signs like this fairy on the moon sign add an elegant take to the fairy theme. Thanks to the neutral coloring, it would work well to balance out a colorful fairy-themed room.
