Miniature Beach Garden


Happy summer everyone! :) I got really inspired by the miniature (fairy) beach I saw online. When my sister went to Florida, I asked her to bring me some nice sand. I got a small black container from dollar tree and I painted it yellow and blue. I used a tutorial I saw online to make a miniature hat. I also made other things for this garden. Read descriptions under the pictures to find out how I did it:) I

The hat was made from plastic cap, fabric, and card board. Beach sign can be made from popsicle sticks and letter stamps. A beach bag is actually a dollar magnet from Michael's :)

I printed out book cover from the internet site. To make it stiff, I used a cork coaster, also available at Michael's

A small flag was made from a piece of fabric and I used a stamp to decorate it. I also had some corals, shells, and small ambers in my craft room so I used it for this project

    Do I need to remove the plants from the plastic containers before putting them in the sand? Or do I bury the pots in the sand? Or do I need to put potting soil in first, put in the plants and then cover with the sand??
