Pattern Description:

How fantastic does this miniature garden look. I'll show you how to make one for yourself and gifts for your friends. They're very easy and economical to make and once you 'know how' the variations of different creations are only limited by your imagination.

You'll be able to enjoy this garden all year round as an inside open terrarium or place on an outside table to become a great conversation piece. What's really cool about this is it can glow in the dark!

The pot is made of hypertufa, it's very easy and fun to make, one trip to the local garden store for a bag of cement, perlite and peatmoss is all you'll need.

I don't use expensive tools or products, everything you'll need is cheap, or recycled and easy to find at the craft or dollar store.

Easy for beginners to follow with step by step directions (see sample page in photos) from how to make the pot, the house, the path, washing line with clothes, basket, tyre swing, gumboots, glow in the dark fairy tree lights, glow in the dark lamp, glow in the dark mushrooms plus more including:

* the art of how to make hypertufa to create a stunning looking pot
* making your own moulds with inexpensive products
* making miniature accessories including the hobbit house
* making cement pathways
* over 100 colour photos
* how to age your pot with moss

You'll have so much fun creating this, and I bet you won't wait to show it off. Think of all the wonderful gifts you'll be able to make.
