Make miniature gardens

Flipping through the latest issue of Midwest Living yesterday, I found an article about fairy gardens. Apparently they're the hottest new variation on terrariums. While I'm not really into imaginary fairies, there is something appealing about miniature versions of pretty much anything.

Anybody remember The Littles on TV? It was a cartoon on Saturday mornings when I was, well, little, and I loved it and desperately wished some tiny people would come live in our house. So making a mini garden might be just the thing to do with a small girl you know.

Use herbs planted in a container to mimic little hedges, bushes, and trees; then add a gravel path or pond. (Find more info here.) If you want to accessorize, get benches and other goodies at The Garden Barn's Etsy shop. Or make your own chairs from champagne bottle packaging by following today's DIY instructions at Design*Sponge.
