DIY Miniature Garden

1 Hour
Hello everyone! Do you have a balcony or a porch where you relax on Sundays drinking your coffee and watching the birds? How about a cute miniature garden to add to your well being?
You can also use this inside your home or to decorate your large scale garden : ) I hope you find this idea helpful and get to try recreating this mini garden.
-Plant Pot + Soil
-White Spray Paint
-Decorative Stones
-Barbecue Sticks and Matches
-Glue Gun
-Jar Cap
-Moss +any plant that resembles a tree
For creating the mini chairs, I used some small candle containers. With a patterned scissors I cut them to half of their height. You can use a regular scissors for this too. Then I glued with a hot glue gun 4 match sticks inside the 4 corners of the container to form the chair legs. Then glued 2 sticks on top. Removed the tip of 3 match sticks, and glued them perpendicular, on top of the other two.
For creating the mini table, I used 4 barbecue sticks that I broke in half, and a jar cap. Used the hot glue gun to attach the sticks to the inside of the cap, in 4 corners.
For creating the mini fence and mini ladder, I used the remaining halfs of the barbecue sticks and match sticks. Glued them together perpendicular on top of each other like in the pictures.
I used a white spray paint to cover them all in paint: the chairs, the table ,the fence, the ladder but also some decorative stones and the plant pot (because I couldn't find a white version at the store so I had to paint them as well)
Then I planted my mini tree, sprayed some water and added the moss.
Then I started to arrange all of the furniture pieces. I even created a mini vase, from a glue stick cap, and some dried flowers, that I glued on the mini table. I also had a mini terracotta pot, with red flowers from my other tutorials. It's basically made from toothpicks and red napkins.
And that's it! You are done!
