Dollhouse Miniature Fairy Garden

This little spring garden is 1.25 inches wide and is 2 inches tall.  It is sitting beside a 1:12 scale plant so you can see how tiny it is.

I had so much fun making this! It sits in a wooden crate and has a styrofoam base. The picket fence was made with card stock. I used a piece of nadina that Casey sent to me to make the tree. Thanks Casey!

The little chair is made with part of a wooden fan, a 1/4 inch hole punch and has wire legs. I made the flowers with my 1/8 inch hole punch and hand cut the leaves. I glued them to a piece of sewing thread and wrapped that around a wire for the arbor.

The "grass" is felt and the hedge along the side is dried moss. The gazing ball is the head of a sewing pin.

I plan to make one for summer, fall and winter too. They will be "for sale" in the garden center. :D

Hope you like my first fairy garden.  I love it!

That tiny chair is ingenious! I can see the parts as you describe, but it's a perfect little chair. Such a cute idea.

I like your little fairy garden - the chair and fence are great! Maybe you could add a miniature path with your egg shell technique ?

Thanks! Next little garden will have an eggshell path. :D I'm working on eggshell mosaic flower pots too.
