I made these little xerigardens for the 2006 Quarter Connection Online Convention.
The base is a woodsie, painted with brown paint and sprinkled with sand.
The plants are made from various artificial plant parts, paper, shredded foam and model railroad fruits.
The small pot is a bead.
Although it's not easy to tell what it is, each of these little gardens included a "large" stone.
Here you can see it better.
Man, that was a lot of little gardens!
and more ...
... and more!
Last thing to get ready was my little fold-over sign for the garden center,
... and the label to go on the bottom of each little xerigarden.
