If there are Blessed Butterflies in the area, use the Goddess Harp near the wall to make the Goddess Wall appear.

Draw a Triforce on the Goddess Wall to receive three fairies as a reward. Alternatively, you can draw a heart symbol on the wall to receive ten hearts and use the Glittering Spores to convert these into fairies.

Use Glittering Spores on a Heart

If you have some Glittering Spores, you can use it to pour the contents on a heart to turn it into a fairy.

If you have a Heart Medal equipped, you can increase the number of hearts that appear after cutting grass or breaking pots. This easily allows you to fill all five Empty Bottles with fairies.
