Mini Fairy Garden In A Tea Cup....


mini fairy garden in a tea cup
I always wanted to make a mini fairy garden, and when I was gifted the perfect tea cup and saucer, I knew what I wanted to do with it.

I have a spot where moss grows in my yard that I use for my fairy gardens. I didn't have to dig a very big piece for this one.

I filled the cup with potting mix and placed the moss on top of the mix.

I used artificial flowers for this fairy garden.

I removed the flowers from the stems, and used a fine floral wire to wrap around the main flower stem. Before I inserted the flowers, I used a spray bottle to spritz water on the moss until it was good and wet.

I inserted the gazing ball and birdhouse down into the moss.

I used small pebbles to make my pathway.

I sat my little angel sitting on the bench on the pebbled pathway to complete my mini fairy garden. Since I used real moss, the fairy garden will be placed near the window that receives morning sun, and will be watered when needed.

Have a question about this project?

      I've also used a piece of Styrofoam in making fairy cup / clay pot fairy gardens using store bought moss and gluing it to the Styrofoam. Just remember to use the low setting on your glue gun so it doesn't melt the Styrofoam.

      Check Hobby Lobby, Michael's, maybe JoAnns and I think I might have seen some at Target -- not sure.
