If you are looking for a crafty way to bring fall color and fun into your home, this fall teacup garden is a great DIY option. Tucked between picture frames on your mantle or nestled on an end table near a stack of books, this miniature fall garden is guaranteed to fill you with joy!
To Make This Fall Fairy Garden You Will Need
- White teacup and saucer
- Small chrysanthemum plant
- Potting soil
- Resin fairy (boy fairy or girl fairy)
- Cute scarecrow
- Fall resin fairy garden miniatures
- Fall floral embellishments
- Acorns or hazelnuts
Fall Teacup Garden Directions
1. Begin by covering the bottom of your teacup with small stones so the soil can properly drain.
2. Plant the chrysanthemum in the teacup. Gently pat the soil to make sure the plant is well-supported.
3. Carefully tuck fall floral embellishments into the teacup fairy garden. We used embellishments that had red, orange, and yellow berries, fall leaves, and pine cones.
4. Place the fairy and resin miniatures inside and around the teacup garden. We used a fall fairy, a scarecrow, and a “Happy Autumn” sign.
Isn’t the scarecrow cute?
5. Last, scatter a few acorns or hazelnuts around the saucer. Water the plant, then you’re finished!
This teacup fairy garden adds a brilliant pop of fall color to our mantle. It would also make a thoughtful gift for neighbors, friends, or teachers.
