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.
Moss filled tea cup.
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.
