25 Perfect Accessories for Miniature Gardens

I’ve tried my hand at both terrariums and dollhouses now, so really, it’s just a matter of time before a miniature garden or two makes an appearance. I love creating tiny worlds and there are so many (so very many) adorable accessories for the miniature garden trend. Like terrariums there are just so many different options for theme, plant material, containers – I had trouble narrowing it down to just 25. And because these are popular with children and adults, I’ve included supplies and kits for a variety of skill levels and ages.
