Thoughts and ideas while planning a miniature garden.

Below is a list of blog posts with the most recent ones listed first.

“How did you fall in love with miniature gardening?” is one of the most common questions I am asked as a fairy garden enthusiast. I love this question because it all comes back to an enjoyable day and a thoughtful gift from a family friend of mine. Since I live in the crafting world, I had obviously heard about miniature gardening but did not leap into the medium until I received a small gift ...

Let us talk about fixing our miniature accessories. These events have happened to the best of us. The sun-baked paint of a bright-colored fairy has faded to a pastel hue, or as you were packing up a miniature garden for seasonal storage you accidentally dropped a fairy house, and a large piece of resin chipped at the front corner of the home. You cannot help that gravity and force break these item...

Some of the most common questions I have been asked regarding miniature fairy gardens touch on the basics, such as “What miniature plants do you use as a lawn?" Or “How do you create a walkway through your mini garden?" These are the types of questions I enjoy receiving because it seems like the person is invested in their miniature garden hobby and excited to try new things. I remember the...

In my opinion, the best thing about planning my next 'miniscape' is that there are many options for designing fairy gardens. What I mean is that there are different miniature accessories, fairy houses, landscape materials, and miniature plants from which I can select the essential pieces. Once I have decided upon and gathered all my supplies, I can begin to design a unique scene and make my garden...

I never thought to ask this question until I saw pictures, on social media, of a woman holding a miniature garden planted in a cocktail glass. It was a cute container that seemed young and festive (not for drinking!). When you are decorating for upcoming parties, a fairy garden cocktail is a special way to display a centerpiece on your table that is one of a kind. It is also an enjoyable project t...

The first thing I want to do when starting a simple and fast tea cup project is to gather all of my supplies so that I simply have to assemble the smaller scale garden. When I am planning a miniature garden or fairy garden, I grab a container, soil, miniature plants, accessories, and a fairy house to finish the whole scene. Have you considered planting a tea cup garden? Once you have selected th...

When the weather starts to brighten up and all of nature bursts to life, my mind wanders to our many gardening fairy friends who are loving this time of year. In my opinion, I consider this a snapshot in time called "the season of fairies." When I wander through a greenhouse full of miniature plants, tiny accessories, and fairy houses I see inspiration everywhere. The gardens that I wish to create...

Imagine a group of tiny fairies gathering at an evening, miniature garden party for a celebration filled with friends and family. Each fairy's personality is "frozen in time" with his or her captured looks, but similarities to all the fairies, attending the event, are noticeable. Sometimes when planning a scene in the fairy garden, I look for fairies that are sold in a set so that they match and c...

It has always been an easy thing for miniature garden fairies to make friends with each other because of their bravery, their friendliness, and their positive attitudes. I have personally always loved the feeling of making new friends. It is one of the most exciting ambiances when you find a person whose personality, lifestyle, and goals all match up to yours. Some of the best people I have met ha...

I have previously planned miniature fairy gardens that would mimic a barbecue get-together and replicate how I celebrate the day with my friends. However, I recognize that various people spend this holiday with reverence toward the soldiers of our country. Many of us have family or friends who have committed their lives to defending America and its citizens. Some of the most meaningful and memorab...
