I have been in love with all the little zen fairy gardens I have been seeing all over Pintrest and Facebook over the past few months. I have been wanting to make a few to have more interesting potted plants around the house and garden. Then the idea struck me. My mother loves plants, but she has a bit of a brown thumb. What if I made her a fairy garden with all fake and dried plants?
That day, after class, I drove down to Michael's to gather some supplies. To my delight, their entire spring collection was on sale. I was able to get a lovely planter, fake moss, and dried flowers for a great price. This allowed me to splurge on the really nice looking trees. All of the other items I already had stored up in my craft closet.
Unfortunately my phone was dying and didn't want to charge the day I was making it, so I only have a few pictures of the project. Also, a dying phone means no flash. Sorry everyone!
