It’s time for another round of Craft Lightning! This month we are creating projects with inexpensive terracotta pots. I stopped in the dollar store to pick up my pots and found a ton of cute fairy garden supplies too! I used those goodies to make a 15 minute dollar store fairy garden pedestal, and you can too!
I made a brief video taking you through the process of putting together this simple fairy garden. I put two new videos on my YouTube channel every week. Subscribe to the channel so you don’t miss any of the fun!
I bought both larger terracotta pots and mini pots at the dollar store, but by the time I got home the mini pots were smashed. I used the shards to create a little walkway up to the front door.
All of the fairy structures in my fairy garden came from my local Dollar Tree. To find them in your store, check both by the silk flowers and by the gardening section. Different stores stock them in different places.
I added in a few of the succulents that I propagated last year. They are still pretty dormant at this stage since it’s not warm here in Michigan yet. If you are using real succulents, you will want to put down a layer of perlite before adding the succulent soil for better drainage. The planter trolley doesn’t have drainage holes, so you might consider adding a few with a drill before starting your garden.
I hot glued one of the larger pots to the bottom of the plant trolley to create a makeshift pedestal. It elevates the fairy garden a bit so you can add some height to your outdoor decorations or use it as a table centerpiece.
