Are you ready for teacher appreciation week next week? I'm going to be sharing teacher ideas and mother's day ideas on Fox 9 Twin Cities Saturday morning at 8:25. If you live in the area, I hope you will tune in!
My first teacher appreciation idea would be great for mother's day too. I am in love with Fairy Gardens... you see all sorts of cute accessories to make them now. I decided to make gnome gardens after seeing these adorable garden gnomes at Wal Mart.
A wonderful lady at Holasek's nursery helped me design the garden and pick out the plants. I made it with children in mind... so I chose an inexpensive plastic pot. Gasp! Fill it up with good gardening soil...
Next you add the plants. I did a variety of herbs and flowering plants in mine. At Holasek's the fairy garden expert gave me some bags of wonderful different sized rocks to use. I bought the moss at Michael's. The little toadstools come from Holasek's nursery too.
The best part of the project was that my mom was visiting, and we made a couple for her too.
Adorable and functional! Do you like gnomes like I do? Check out my pinterest board here... http://pinterest.com/jenni_swenson1/garden-gnomes/
