I may have mentioned it once or twice before, but I had several polymer clay fairy garden tutorials published in Polymer Café magazine.

Including having my sweet little birdbath on the cover a couple years ago.

In total, there were seven fairy garden accessory tutorials and the vines and flowers pens tut. (Still one of the most popular!)

Then, sadly, the magazine ceased publication.

Which is why this cute little acorn mailbox tutorial never made it out into the world…

…Until now.

Although Polymer Café is no more, which is sad, I miss it, the good news is you can now find all nine of these tutorials in downloadable PDF format in my Etsy shop, Keepsake Crafts Create.

Just last week I finished editing and updating the final one, this darling, glow-in-the-dark fairy lamppost. 

All of the tutorials have essentially the same information as in the magazine, but most have been updated with more or clearer photos, more detailed steps and more information.

Happy creating!

Fairy gardens are utterly adorable and a miniature one in a tea cup is especially cute.

It was SO much fun creating all the details for this tiny fairy garden in a tea cup!

In today’s video I will show you:

  • How to fill your tea cup and prepare the ground
  • How to make teeny houses with doors, windows, and textured roofs
  • How to make itty-bitty mushrooms with a fun and easy way of inserting them into your garden
  • How to create tiny polymer clay succulents that never need watering
  • And how to make minuscule flowers, because what is a fairy garden without flowers?

Since I had so many ideas for details to add this is part one of a two-part series.

Be sure to check back next week when I’ll show you how to make ladybugs, bunny rabbits and a sweet little arbor for your flowers to climb on. Then we’ll put it all together and finish the project.

Tools and Materials:

A few notes from the video:

  • There are LOADS of tutorial on YouTube for all different types of succulents.
  • The issue of Polymer Café that I mention in the video is Vol. 15 No. 1, Nov./Dec. 2016. I could not find anywhere online to purchase back issues of this magazine.
  • I do have one extra copy of this issue, if you are interested feel free to contact me. (And if you find a source for back issues, let me know and I’ll pass along the info!.)

Enjoy the video and happy creating!
