Easy DIY Fairy/Gnome Garden

My girls and I planted a Gnome Garden a few weeks ago. They got it as a kit for Christmas.
They are having so much fun watching it grow (as are Hubby and I!).  Though ours came as a kit, it would be super to make one on your own with your kids.

You'll need:
  • a large terra cotta pot base 
  • soil
  • grass seed
  • a few bean seeds
  • rocks
  • paint
  • a small house
  • a small gnome (optional)
  • other decorations you want

Everything you need (except the seeds) you should be able to find at your local craft store.  The rocks you can find outside.  

1)  Paint the pot base and rocks and/or other decorations you have and let dry.

2)  Fill the pot base 1/2 way with the soil

3)  Plant the seeds mostly around the edges, leaving yourself some open space for decorations in the middle

4)  Fill with the rest of the soil and decorate your garden as you want

5)  Water and watch grow!

Our seeds were pretty fast growing so after 2 days we already saw sprouts!  My girls were ecstatic!

Have you ever planted a fairy or gnome garden with your kids?
