Thanksgiving DIY for the Miniature Garden
We are grateful to add this miniature garden to our series, A Year in the Miniature Garden, where we have used this garden once an month and changed the accessories to match the holiday or occasion. The others in this series are at the end of this blog, in case you missed them.
Today, we are serving up a couple of quick do-it-yourself projects so you can decorate your miniature garden for the big day. Note that it is okay to pull-in a couple of Christmas accents if you need some sparkle and twinkle in your scene. Being Canadian, I’ve been slow to adapt the idea of mixing Christmas with Thanksgiving like it is done here in the States. Our Thanksgiving is in October and we don’t even think about Christmas until November.
Miniature Thanksgiving Holiday Stakes
The following simple DIY is made from a Wood Necklace Kit I found at Michael’s Crafts but it can be made with buttons too. The variety of holiday and whimsical buttons have grown exponentially recently, if you haven’t been to a fabric store lately, go and check out the selection.
How to Make a Miniature…
This how-to has been moved to the Miniature Garden Society, a private website with everything miniature and garden from the library, studio and brain of The Mini Garden Guru, Janit Calvo, author of Gardening in Miniature: Create Your Own Tiny Living World.
