Create a Container Fairy Garden

STEP 1

Create a magical miniature container garden that will enthrall your kids. In this make-believe landscape, a pint-sized bush is a large tree, twigs and leaves turn into furniture, and tiny woodland sprites are as close as your imagination.

Plan the Design

¬†Arranging plants just-so can create the effect of a little forest, a mossy lawn and other scaled-down echoes of Mother Nature’s grander schemes. Then start imagining the fairies that visit late at night when the world is asleep.Start out by using a stick to “sketch” out the design in the potting soil. Decide where the tree will go and the best places for the other plants, the bench and any other decorative items.
