When working on your miniature garden, remember to match the holiday theme you are trying to create.

When I am planning my newest fairy garden, I start by hunting for unique containers around thrift stores, flea markets, and occasional shops. I start by pulling apart piles of old washbasins, wicker baskets, vintage pottery, and worn-out luggage. I fall in love with broken pieces of salvaged junk, because I see potential to create something unique and beautiful. They inspire me to think of the new...

I have always found that reconnecting with nature is an easy way to find inspiration for my next fairy garden. When I am feeling particularly listless towards thinking of miniature gardening ideas, I will spend a lazy afternoon wandering around the state park, which is my next-door neighbor. I remember that at its core, fairy gardening involves selecting and maintaining miniature plants with an en...
