Miniature Garden

Miniature Garden


I have always fancied all things miniatures, miniature garden, fairies and fairy gardens since childhood and I can say that I haven’t changed much. I still have a big soft corner for them and these things are still my weakness.

As you already know, I generally don’t throw away things and am a keeper. So, when I found a broken bowl in my kitchen, I thought that I should finally live up to my dream and create a miniature garden no matter what. I haven’t tried anything before just because I though that it has to be perfect!. What I have learned over the years is that, there are no rules to follow, the rules that stand are only dictated by your heart.

And creating a miniature Garden for yourself should be an exploring, creative and calming experience. I feel its a way to get into the dream world that you created in your childhood and live it everyday post that!

So, I have finally done it and my miniature garden is ready. The best things is, I have made this with all things that I generally find lying around my house. And in addition to that my son helped me quite a bit in this…with the color combinations of the whole setup, choosing the animals and birds to use (It is overall a win win)….

Here are the items I used to create my miniature garden…

  • A broken bowl, which I wouldn’t use anymore.
  • I mostly have animals/birds in my garden. I have used my son’s Kinder egg toys for those cute animals and birds. 🙂 
  • The plants I used are all succulents. I know they can survive with less water and they look really beautiful.
  • Used tree sticks and yarn to create the ladders.
  • Used a cardboard to create the houses, fences and the sign.
  • Small pebbles are from my garden…
  • Jar covers and Tin covers to create the base for the houses.
  • Popsicle sticks for the small fences in the bowl.
  • Little butterfly and flower punch for the little decoration.
  • And some colored paper to make it look a bit nicer.

And the garden is ready! Here are some of the pics…

Here I first created the base of my garden, using various material I stated above.
