Make your own dishgarden affordably

Since the day I started collecting cacti and succulents, I felt the want to make my own dishgarden. But the problem is there are no available materials and supplies in my area, or at least nearby. If there are, it’ll cost me an arm to finish one dish.

When my daughter had a scrapbook project in school, I had no choice but to buy materials even if they are a little costly. I just made sure that the left overs won’t go to waste.

I used a clay jarlet for the fairy house, placed upside down. Roof was made of small garden stones stuck on a cardboard. 

Pond was again made of stones, filled with blue colored sand. Elevated the pond by putting a jar cap of mayonnaise under it. Then I cut pieces from the Christmas garland to give it a greener ground. The multi-colored fence was bought from Pandayan Bookshop for Php45.

Hammock was made out of an old foot stockings, hung on a dried stem. The rest of the open space were filled with garden stones.

I hope next time, there’d be shops nearby that sell accessories for this kind of project at a cheaper price. Otherwise, I’ll stick to DIY accessories. It’s actually fun and fulfilling, looking at your finished products afterwards, and affordable, too!
