What do you all use to keep your fairies from falling over?

I tried the trick glueing a nail to the bottom with gorilla glue and e6000, but with both the nail keeps popping off.
Is there a secret to it?

great question! I only have gnomes in my garden so far, and I am forever re-erecting them Sad I too would love to find out how to keep them from falling over. I plan to add fairies this year...or next I imagine they would have a much small base than the gnomes I currently have.

For the mini garden structures we have made, DH just embedded spikes in the bottoms of them, I guess that would be similar to your nail idea.

I have two fairies, they both are of the pose of laying on their side. Don't have to stand them up. Guess that is something I never thought of and was prepared to go buy a bunch. Maybe I will just wait.

I just bought some at the dollar store that have a base, but are standing up. I'm thinking of burying the base in the dirt to help them stand up. I'll let you know how those work out.
