  • How to make a garden / terrarium. Diy Miniature Garden - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut 2 sticks equally and place them in parallel. Now glue small sticks on them as shown in the picture. This is the easiest way of making miniature fences (I think!), but you can make fences with different patterns

    Place the vining plant on a side of the pot. I love vining plants so I'm keeping one, it's optional. If you're using a larger pot you can add more plants if you want to. Add a layer of dry sand on the top of the soil mix.

    Gather all the decors. Check out my previous how-to's to find out how I made the mini furniture, paper planters and gardening tools. Here are the links:

    Decorate the garden with the mini decors as you want.
    Tips:
    *Decorate your mini garden with any kind of plants you want, but I think it's better to use plants that require less nurturing such as, vining plants and succulent. Besides you can also plant preserved moss, miniature ivy, dwarf trees.
    *You might need to change the tiny planters (in case the plants die),
    *You can buy miniature garden accessories but it's fun when you make'em yourself!
    *Use soil mix for the mini garden, it's better to mix soil with sand. I covered the top with sand.
    *Use a dropper to water the plants in the mini planters.
    *Keep a water spray bottle to spray water over the mini garden everyday, so that it looks and feels fresh.
    I don't know much about gardening, so please correct me if I've made any mistake and give more suggestions for the mini garden.
    Enjoy!
