Fairy Gardens Made From Broken Flower Pots With DIY

Don't throw away those broken clay pots! Look at what you can create with a broken pot
or two, a few small plants, some potting soil, and a little imagination. Why not turn your 
broken pots and pottery into a beautiful fairy garden? Every garden can use a little magic, so
why not attract a garden fairy or two of your own? :)  You can incorporate all types of 
miniatures into  your fairy garden; think about what natural materials you might use
such as acorns, stones, and twigs to create fairy decor. Doll house miniatures also work
well. Take a look at these creative examples of fairy gardens and be inspired!

Don't have any broken terra cotta flower pots of your own to create a fairy garden?
 Don't break any! Instead, use a regular unbroken pot, or how about some other creative
 container like these pictured below? Small vintage suitcases, tool boxes, and even an
old wash basin tub can become magical fairy gardens with just a little bit of imagination!

This old wash tub makes a charming fairy garden!

What do you think?

I hope you have a great week

  1. I've always loved fairy gardens. I think people are so ingenious when they use what they've got laying around. I made one myself a few years ago, but my cats immediately tore it apart. Maybe one day...
