How to Make a Haunted Halloween Teacup Garden
This delightfully eerie Halloween Teacup Garden boasts bold colors, irresistible texture, and fresh succulents.
It’s easy and fun to make with kids and is a creative gift for teachers, neighbors, or the hostess of a Halloween party.
To Make This Halloween Craft You Will Need
- White teacup and saucer
- Well-draining potting soil
- Halloween miniatures
- Natural wool roving
Directions for Halloween Teacup Garden
After gathering supplies, cover the bottom of the teacup with small stones for drainage.
Gently transfer the succulents into the teacup, then cover the top of the soil with moss.
Press Halloween miniatures around the teacup to create a Halloween scene.
We love to use the miniatures that have a small metal stake. Look for them around the floral section of your local craft store.
And if you shop close to Halloween, you can often find them for 70% off!
This headless man is my favorite! He was too large to fit inside the teacup but looks perfect standing outside of it.
Next, stretch and spread wool roving around the plants and miniatures.
The wool roving, which looks like spider webs, adds the perfect creepy touch for Halloween!
Don’t forget to gently wrap the wool roving around some of the miniatures.
When you are finished decorating your Halloween Teacup Garden, spritz the plants with water.
I love how this looks…like fresh dew on a still fall morning!
My kids love this skeleton guy!
