Make Your Own Broken Clay Pot Fairy Garden

Amber Robinson, creator of the broken clay pot fairy garden, showed me how to make my own creation. Here are the steps from her October workshop:

Step 1.
Step 1: Lay the clay pot on its side and using a hammer, tap with medium strength along the side. Caution: if you tap too hard, you may break off more then you want.

Step 2
Step 2: Save the pieces that were removed. Use duct tape to reinforce any cracks that may appear on the inside of the clay pot for added stability.

Step 3
Step 3: Fill the pot with soil. Use one of the broken clay shards and push it into the middle of the pot. Be firm.

Step 4
Step 4: Add another clay piece if desired. Make sure the soil is firmly packed into place.

Step 5
Step 5: Using small broken pieces of clay (you may need to break up more with the hammer), push the shard horizontally into the pot to form the first step. Pack down dirt on top of the step to secure it. Then repeat with remaining clay shards.

Step 6
Step 6: Plant desired plants in your pot. (Robinson advised using plants that are often used in terrariums.) Moss (real or fake) can be used to cover up all exposed portions of the soil. (Rocks can be used for this purpose, too.)

Step 7
Step 7: Add fairy garden figurines! I added mushrooms, birdhouses and a small fairy to mine. Let your imagination decide how yours will look!
