Micro Fairy Gardens in Miniature Fairy Gardens

It’s no secret to those who know me – I have an obsession with micro-mini fairy gardens. I enjoy making micro versions of what other people do in miniature. Wheelbarrow_2605

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.

 

And that’s how it happened. I really get a kick out of the reaction  people have when they are checking out their new fairy garden only to discover that their fairy garden… has a micro fairy garden! IMG_2829

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
