How to Make a Miniature Garden Craft

| More

We are right smack in the middle of Winter…. and if you are anything like me you are missing Spring pretty badly about now.  Well, I have a way to bring a little bit of Spring into your house.  Today I’m going to show you how to make a Miniature Garden for your house.  We are going to build this miniature garden in an ice cube tray.  So, ask your Mom or Dad if they have an extra ice cube tray for you to borrow.   You can follow my miniature garden step-by-step or you can be creative and come up with your own variations.  Either way….. let’s get started.







 

Materials Needed

Ice cube tray

Popsicle sticks

Twigs

Craft paper

Crepe paper- green

Cellophane paper/ transparent plastic

Scissors

Tape







 

Step 1

Cut bits of blue paper and use it to line a few cubes to make a pond.







 


Step 2

Cut a few pieces of cellophane paper and put it in the cubes. Seal the top with a layer of tape to give it a shining top.







 

Step 3

Take brown and black paper and make small balls. Fill up a few cubes to make a rockery.







 

Step 4

Cut out strips of green crepe paper and make slits on the top as shown and put them in the rest of the cubes for grass. Cut wider strips at the back to make taller grass.







 

Step 5

Cut out outlines of trees and tape the back to a Popsicle stick to make trees. Tape them to the edge of the cubes.







 

Step 6

Cut out flowers and tape them to the back of twigs and tape these to the sides of the cube.







 

Step 7

Your garden is ready.







And there you go…. you have just finished your very own miniature garden craft.  You now have a little touch of spring for your house.  Put it on a window sill where you can see it often…. it will remind you that Spring is on its way.
