I love miniatures! I always had a plan of making a miniature garden and couldn't wait any longer. In this instructable I will show you how to make a cute mini garden in few easy steps. This could be a fun project to do in the weekends and I tried to make it beginner friendly, besides it doesn't matter if you're not an expert (neither am I), miniatures always turn out to be cute.

If you like this ible then please vote for it, I'd really appreciate it :D

Step 1: Materials needed

This mini garden can be made using easily available materials around us! To make this mini garden you'll need:

1) Flower pot of any size you want (It'll be the size of the mini garden),
2) Vining plant and a stick to support it, (Optional, but I thought it would look cute in the mini garden),
3) Twigss (to make the bench, table & fences),
4) Paper (to make tiny planters),
5) Thick paper (to make mini water can and bucket),
6) Scissor & ant-cutter,
7) Glue (white glue, hot glue or super glue),
8) Tiny plants (they grow around the larger ones, look around the garden),
9) Plants for the mini garden (money plants, succulent, preserved moss, dwarf trees etc.)
10) Anything you want to add.

If the paper pots have no bottom then the plants can root deeper into the soil.
yes, you're right.. I'v already replaced the tiny planters without the bottom :)

A miniature garden will soon be in my home .working on it.great project and well made!

Hey congratulations on being a finalist in the weekend projects contest! I love this idea and with the summer sales starting I'm hunting around for things to create my own for my classroom (I will share pics since you are my inspiration) I'm thinking I might be able to make little ceramic pots for the potted plants out of the scrap clay I have laying around the classroom. :) Again well done and good luck!
Thank yo poofrabbit! I really enjoyed making this mini garden. Very happy to know you're making one, I'm sure you'll have fun! ceramic pots sound awesome! I can't wait to see your miniature garden, please do share a picture when you're done making it :) <br>Thanks!

Great project! <br> <br>There's a site called Two Green Thumbs which is all about miniature gardens - they sell mini plants and accessories, from 1/4&quot; to 1&quot; scale - sadly, even those would be too small for my eyesight these days - I only go to the site to wonder at what can be done - and to wish ...
Thanks! <br>Just visited the site, it's great! I love miniatures, the smaller the cuter! :)
Awesome Job!
Thank you so much!
This has finally inspired me to go make a mini garden! Have always wanted to make one - and you made it so easily!
Thanks! you should make one very soon, it's fun and easy to make :)
You've got a fine garden going! I love it! Consider looking into bonsai techniques to allow your plants to mature and still keep them small, as well as learn more awesome techniques!Truly awesome looking tray garden you've got there!
Thank you so much! I've been thinking about learning the bonsai technique and hoping to do so in my next miniature garden :) thanks again!
Oh how lovely! Beautifully clean and crisp. If you'd like to see the ones I've made recently, check my blog: http://elowezil.blogspot.com
Thanks! yes, I've seen your garden, they have such a cute whimsical look!
@Muhaiminah Faiz; Hi! Very cute! I've tweeted it. Cheers! : ) Site
Ohw, thanks! please vote for it if you like it!
I have a few suggestions for this way cute idea:) For the watering can, you can use a small empty thread spool. They come in a foam, so you can make holes in them and attach stuff. And, you can use pop bottle caps for planters or tables and, if it's large enough, you can have a swimming pool:) You can paint a pop bottle cap black and put little orange beads in it for a fire pit. Oh, you have made my head hurt with all the ideas I can come up with. It's like a little zen garden that's a whole lot more fun! Thanks a lot:)
Thank you sooo much for the suggestions! I have a plan of making another miniature garden and I'll definitely keep your suggestions in mind next time. post a picture if you make one. Love sharing ideas! :) <br>Have a great day!
That's not nice BMR 11100:( It's your opinion and you're entitled to it, but you really shouldn't make unkind comments, especially those that aren't spelled correctly.
Love this! Need to start this
Love it. So fresh and simple. You may like to see the ones I made here: <br>http://www.elowezil.blogspot.co.nz/
the pink and green plants are Coleus. They are easy to grow even in the shade <br>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coleus
Thanks for informing! I know, right?, they grow everywhere :)
Beautiful ! <br>Now you add a few moles, a cat, a dog and birds with some ants, locusts and worms, then a compost bin, all of them alive and to scale, and you've got paradise on earth for real : a wonderful way to become God in one's own house or apartment !... <br> <br>Please be sure to let us know when you get the notion of creating Adam and Eve : I'm sure that all Instructables' members will readily give you a few tips to perfect previous trials. <br> <br>Thank you so much for posting
for the folks looking to Herbalise your fairly gardens... look up Boxwood Basil. It is Basil that grows bushy with tiny leaves simular to oregano.
