When I saw all the fairy gardens in a wheelbarrow on one of my favorite pic sites, I just had to grab a miniature wheelbarrow and give it a try – tiny style.
Miniature terrarium moss garden? Love them.
So next, I made a 2″x3″ terrarium using dollhouse picture frames. Rolled a few gluey stones around in some artificial moss, added one of my signature 1/2″ scale fairy houses – and tada. Well..it wasn’t quite that easy:)
From there it was a natural progression. The very next table top fairy garden I was asked to make ended up with a micro-fairy garden in it! Well. Not precisely a fairy garden.
My fascination with moss, fairy doors and gnarly trees all came together while shopping for plants for my tabletop project. I spotted a rugged looking bonsai and inspiration struck. What if I made a little fairy door to snuggle up to that bonsai? I could pull out my teeny clay gnome buddy and have a photo shoot.
So, next time you’re playing with your fairy garden, why not give your fairies a fairy garden. As always – have a fairy good time! Marthe
