Hello Fairy Lovers!
The weekend is upon us and what better way to spend it with family and friends than to make your own teacup fairy garden? A teacup fairy garden is a downsized fairy garden that is very portable and easy to make. It's a quick afternoon activity that you and your kids can bond over and does not take up too much resources. In fact, you can even check your home for materials you can upcycle or recycle. The key is to be as creative as possible. To create your own teacup fairy garden, here are some materials you will need:
- A teacup, an optional saucer
- Well-draining potting soil
- Moss, bark chips, pebbles, and other plant accessories
- Fairy garden miniatures
Once you have these materials ready, check out the step by step guide on how to create a teacup fairy garden below. Don't forget to share this with your friends and family!
- Take your teacup and place pebbles at the bottom. This will enable the soil to drain properly. Note that most succulents thrive best when grown on well-draining soil.
