I found myself with a broken garden fountain on my hands. The pump was broken and a decorative statue that adorned the top of the statue was actually missing its head. The poor little garden boy was actually decapitated by a pesky squirrel! We thought about attempting to glue the fountain together and replacing the pump and then we decided to turn it into a magical miniature fairy container garden. Now it's a stand alone miniature fairy garden piece! What do you think?Since we're using this in our entryway in full sunlight we knew live miniature plants wouldn't thrive in the direct sunlight so we opted for miniature faux flowers instead.
Here's a close up of the bowl while we were creating it in the shade of our patio. We filled it with potting soil, miniature faux plants, a fairy garden arbor we added a trellis of faux greenery and then filled it with fun fairy garden miniatures.
I love the final results! I has me scrounging around for more broken fountains I can convert into fairy gardens. This was a smaller standing fountain, imagine what you could create with a full scale fountain! I guess one man's trash really is another's treasure because we transformed this broken garden fountain headed for the trash into an enchanted miniature fairy garden container. I'd love to hear your feedback and get inspired by your projects, drop me a comment or email.
