If you have jumped on board the miniature gardening and fairy garden bandwagon, then you know that there are a ton of accessories for miniature gardens and fairy gardens that you can add to your magical living world. Using natural materials such as twigs and stones you can create patios, pathways, and fences. You can customize miniature furniture with paint or nail polish. And you can decorate your miniature world with found items and treasures. Making your own accessories can be very rewarding and I’m thrilled to have found a wealth of inspiration in Miniature Gardening Expert, Janit Calvo’s book, the Gardening in Miniature Prop Shop.

Have you ever wondered how real the garden projects are that you see in books? You might assume that the projects are airbrushed or staged just for the book, right?
