Hello, I am wanting to make a fairy garden/dish. I would love to see some pictures of what you have made. I need some inspiration lol. Plus where you found your supplies.

Thanks,
Teresa

I am not the most creative but there was a post here somewhere about a fairy garden. I found some at JoAnn fabrics.

They were selling fairy gardens at JoAnn fabrics? My grocery store is starting to sell succulents! I can put them in with the food bill and hubby has no idea. Angel

I've been dragging my feet putting this mini garden together. DH made the box for me last year. Finally did something with it yesterday.
The whole thing:

The beer was stolen from Barbie. The fire ring is a piece of rolled magnet.

The "tree" is Talinum paniculatum, jewels of Opar, planted high so the exposed roots look like a trunk.

Made the chair from craft sticks.

I've had this other one for a couple yrs. Here's new pics from yesterday, after a little re-arranging & a few additions. Older pics of it, how it was made, are in another discussion in this forum:

TY, Cinda & Gigi! I got a ton of mosquito bites, but otherwise, it's a lot of fun.

If you haven't already bought all your fairy garden supplies, I like "Enchanted Gardens", especially for the fairies (and the little animals).
They have some great prices and lots of fun stuff. Drat!!! I don't have any pics of my fairy gardens on this new computer, guess I'm gong to have to go "fairy gardening" and take a camera with me!

Here's a few pics of some of my miniature gardens.
The castle is hardware cloth with cement soaked toweling draped on.
The Fairy and Gnome homes are made from cement I cast in homemade molds.
The Hobbit house is cement over a styrofoam base. The Hobbit house is the largest, the door is about 5" tall.
I always decorate it for Halloween, this year my grandchildren helped!
That's cool, if you click on the picture it makes a photo show!

Sure do! I think I have a pic here somewhere. It looks tiny but you enter split level, there are 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and a laundryroom downstairs. Upstairs is the livingroom, dining room, kitchen, 1/2 bath and office. I'm out in the country about 15 from the coast in central California.
