Miniatures are fun to make, I used to make miniature sculptures when was in school but I don't anymore. Among all kinds of miniature crafts 'miniature garden' is my favorite! they look so fresh and adorable.

While and after making my first miniature garden I've learned a lot about mini gardens, such as- how to make mini garden decors by myself, what kind of plants are good for mini gardens, how to take care of them and so on.

This time I wanted to take my miniature garden skill to the next level and I'm really happy with how it turned out :D

In this ible I've tried mt best to show the instructions of every single decors of this miniature garden. I hope this ible is helpful :)

Step 1: Things you'll need

To make this garden you'll need:
  • A concrete pot - it should have a drainage system for excess water,
  • Soil mix and sand,
  • Plants - suitable for mini garden,

For decoration:

This is the fun part, you don't have to buy a single piece of decoration for this mini garden because I'll show you how to make all these mini stuffs :D
  1. Small tree branches, sticks,
  2. Glue (hot glue, white glue, wood glue),
  3. Scissor, utility knife,
  4. crafting Paper,
  5. Thick paper,
  6. paint and brush,
  7. Concrete mix,
  8. others....
