Nothing can make you happier than tending to a living thing. If you don’t have pets or kids, maybe plants are more your speed. But if you don’t have a large back yard or outdoor space in which to grow your own flowers and the like, you might be interested in making your own teacup garden. These little beauties are so detailed and magical that I just can’t get enough of them!
- They bring the outside inside. One of the best things about teacup gardens is that you can put them anywhere in the house. They don’t take up much room since, you know, they’re in teacups and all, and they brighten up whatever space you put them in, from your bedside table to your living room bookshelf or anywhere else.
- They offer a wonderful opportunity to get creative. There’s no one way to make a teacup garden. While some people prefer to make theirs mimic the appearance of a real, life-sized outdoor space, others are content with simply filling theirs with a few plants and other little items like mini gnomes or ceramic cottages. The choice really is yours!
- They make incredible gifts. Not only would a teacup garden (or a dozen!) look amazing in your own home, they’re also a thoughtful, beautiful gift that your BFF, sister, mom, or colleague would also be sure to appreciate. Because they’re all created by hand, no two will look the same, which makes them even more special.
- They’re pretty low maintenance. Depending on what you put in yours, it’s unlikely that maintaining a teacup garden will take up much of your time or energy. If you have real plants like succulents or herbs in yours, you may need to throw a little water its way every couple of days, but generally speaking, you won’t have to do much to keep it going, which is a relief for those of us who don’t particularly have a green thumb.
- If you’re looking for a new craft project, consider this! All you need is a teacup and whatever you think you might like to put in yours. This is a great way to expend that pent-up energy and make something to brighten up your space at the same time. What are you waiting for?
