I found this plaque the other day and couldn't pass it up...it was perfect for our project.
I used a piece of hard plastic with small holes for the bottom of the planter and burlap to hold the dirt in.
I planted the groundcover close together because I didn't want a lot of dirt showing since ours would be used to play in. These plants grow fast, so you could space them out and it will fill in just fine.
As you can see, the fairy garden is a dinosaur garden right now.
I'm sure that will change from week to week.
We are having so much fun playing together in this magical place....
Here is a list of the plants I used...
Creeping wirevine for the side of the trellis
Veronica reptans Sunshine
Spicy Orange Thyme
Succulents for the little urns
And the little flowers are Alyssum
I found a place that sells accessories here and some garden centers have them...have fun!
