The weather is finally feeling like springtime and I’ve been in the gardening mood! I have really enjoyed the warm nights and beautiful evening sky that Texas has to offer. So I am in the process of turning my back porch into my new sanctuary. I have had two empty barrels sitting on my back porch since we moved in and had no idea what to do with one of them. I saw the new fairy garden collection from Consumer Crafts and knew one of those barrels would be great for a fairy succulent garden!
Supplies needed to make your own fairy succulent garden:
- Miniature Garden Fairy House
- Miniature Bench
- Mini Garden Basket
- Fairy Garden Tools
- Wishing Well
- Fairy Garden Stones
- Moon Lights Strand
- Mini Fence
- Sheet Moss
- Fish Gravel & Potting Soil
- Real or Artificial Succulents
- Barrel or Pot
Once my small mountain was created, I added the moss to the side of the mound. Then, I just started placing succulents and fairy garden items in where I wanted them to go. It was a little trial and error until I got everything in place.
Once the sun started to set I turned on the Moon Lights and the whole succulent garden lit up! This part really impressed my boys. I took the lights out once I was done using the them. They are really small and no problem to take them in and out so the lights will last.
