The first step is to gently smash the clay pot and then bury the large half in the larger pot with the potting soil.
Next, take a larger piece of your smash-up-job and place it at an angle to your buried pot.
Fill with soil, and then use any remaining pieces of clay pot to create a spiral staircase for your fairies…cuz they may not want to always use their wings ? .
Use succulents or moss to fill in space between each stair step. I had plenty of clay shards left, so I used them to make a walkway in this garden. Too cute!
Time to get planting. Little chamomile flowers, moss, succulents, creeping thyme, mint, the possibilities are limitless!
Next up, we created a fence using some found twigs and some garden string.
For this particular garden, we used some scrap wood to create a little bench. The longer piece of wood I just jammed down into the dirt for the backrest, and then I let the smaller piece rest on the soil surface for the seat. Super easy! No hardware required.
Precious, with a few river rocks to balance the little plantings.
Evangeline takes care of her little fairy gardens with a gentle spray from a spray bottle. It’s easy and I love how it is starting her off as a little gardener! A win-win in my book!
Now, clap if you believe in fairies!
Materials I used for this project:
- 1 clay pot (got mine at the 99C Store)
- One larger pot that is much wider
- Potting soil
