Gnome garden

image

When I was little I was in to gnomes, not fairies. Probably that’s because I had this beautiful book about gnomes, full of amazing illustrations. Recently I found a pair of ceramic gnomes while shopping at Target, and it got me thinking that I should make a fairy Gnome garden :). And I wanted a flower arrangement that from far would look like perfectly normal flower pot. But when you get closer, you are invited in to tiny gnome garden :). I must tell you, my daughter loves it ! She was totally enchanted by the idea of making a gnome garden, and now she checks on them all the time to see if they are fine!

What you’ll need :

Big pot
Plants
Soil
Figurines
Broken pieces for the stairs
Wood sticks
Cupcake toppers.
Little rocks

Arrange your plants in the pot, leave some space for the broken pieces that’ll form the stairs. Add wooden sticks, cupcake toppers and little rocks. Place your figurines. Water the plants.

Now make up some fairy tales about gnomes living in your garden !

  1. So cute! I loved gnomes as a kid, too. There was a show on Nickelodeon with this little gnome family. I forget what it was called, but it was my favorite show! Oh, memories. 😉 Have a great day!

  2. This is absolutely adorable. Having boys, I never thought a “fairy” garden would be an option but I guess I was too boxed in to not think of a ‘gnome’ garden – brilliant and beautiful Joanna!
