I also recently noticed that the plant located by the shell fairy house I created last year had pretty much swallowed up my previous beach scene.
So, I decided to create a miniature seashore inside of my tipped clay container.
- large clay pot
- blue paint
- beach inspired fairy house
- glass marbles
- plastic wrap (optional)
- crushed shells
- dirt or sand
- lupinus hybrids
|First, you will need to partially submerge a large piece of clay pottery on it's side. I used an old pot that had a crack on one side. The cracked section is buried so you don't even see it.|
|Since this piece has been in our yard for years, I needed to move the dirt out of the pot before I could paint the inside.|
|Next, paint the inside of the pot. I like to use materials that I already have available when I can. Instead of purchasing new paint, I used leftover latex paint to coat the inside of the pot. Interestingly, the name of the color was Azure Sky. It seemed like a perfect match for this project.|
|Once the inside of the pot was painted, I pushed the dirt back in and leveled it out.|
|Next, you’ll create the ocean with flattened blue, glass marbles.|
|I placed a piece of plastic wrap under the marbles. It made them easier to spread out and they won't get lost in the dirt.|
Once the marbles are spread out the way you like, you can trim the plastic wrap.
|Next, place your fairy house. I made this one with a small clay pot, grout and crushed shells. Here's how.|
If you don't want to make a fairy house, look at the pet store in the aquarium section. You're sure to find some beach themed decor.
|Next, create the beach with some dirt or sand.|
