Tabletop Fairy Garden

Our son is the very proud collector of the herbs and flowers for this tiny container garden. Making this little scene I noticed how lovely it is to dwell on the beauty of just single flowers.

The flower pots in this miniature flower display are made of half corks that I hollowed out and filled with floral foam. The flower stand is made of 3 pieces of wire of approx 10 cm long, twisted together. The ends are bent and decorated with wooden beads. To attach the cork pot, simply prick a hole in the corks with scissors.

Snail houses are excellent fairy vases. This piece is made of two slices of birch and 4 snail houses glued together. Simply fill the snail houses with a bit of water and some flowers.

By the way, walnut shells make lovely baskets and containers! Do not fill them with water though, that would make them crack. Enjoy!
