I found this tiny Prince Charming frog at Tuesday Morning in the seasonal clearance last fall.

Originally, I pictured him nestled with a succulent, but he is so small that he kind of got lost. So...I decided to create a miniature teacup garden. It's a simple way to brighten a window sill or shelf. To make your own,  start by by adding moss to a teacup.  I found bagged moss at Dollar Tree, and I noticed they already have fairy garden accessories out. Thrift stores are a great place to find pretty teacups for pennies!

Next, add Prince Charming or any other miniatures you want to display. You'll notice I kept my "garden" very simple, because I really wanted to showcase Prince Charming. I added only a few pink roses and a whimsical sign--you know what they say about kissing a lot of frogs to find your prince! My mini sign is crafted from a dollar store plant marker and a chalkboard sticker. However, you can add whatever accessories you like. Hope Prince Charming has brightened your day!

  2. Love it, Cecilia! Our Dollar Tree stores have stocked an incredible number of whimsical fairy garden pieces this year, it's unbelievable! I really had to restrain myself. I like your idea of keeping it simple in a pretty tea cup:) xo Kathleen

  3. I loved your frog prince. I have done my share of kissing frogs in my life! I have made several tiny arrangements (with chipped cups and/or saucers, laying the cup on its side, gluing it to the saucer, with moss spilling out of the cup onto the saucer, covering any flaws with the moss. My favorite, I glued a small round mirror in the bottom of the cup to reflect the scene. Love making fairly gardens!
