Broken Pot Fairy Garden

My wife made me a Fairy House. I made it a Broken Pot Garden. I used plants of different textures and colors from all around our property to fill in the garden. With a little pea gravel and a cactus from the gardening center to finish it off this fairy garden has turned into a wonderful respite for a magical friend to inhabit. Be sure to watch the video at the end and visit the blog post for all the details on how we put this together! The video link below appears broken.

Here's the video how me putting the broken pot fairy garden together.

    How did you get the pot to break evenly like that? The video wouldn't play. :(

      Hi Eileen, I'm sorry but I have no clue what those plants are. They are just things I found growing around our home in the wild!r

    This is a picture of my Broken Pot Gnome Garden. Made with Gnome Figurines and decorative pieces bought at Dollar General. I used Succulents plants bought at Lowe's.
