A new trend in gardening has plant aficionados creating all sorts of creative flower arrangements and broken pot fairy gardens, proving that even a shattered flower pot can be useful and beautiful.

Such fairy gardens can be created either from the ceramic pot shards left from an accidental break or from a carefully planned cut. This DIY project starts with soaking a ceramic flower pot in water and using a craft drill or file to create a weakened shape that can then be “broken” out with a hammer (be sure to use safety goggles and an air filter during this step). Then, fill the pot with planter’s soil and arrange the shards in the soil in any way you wish! What do you think about this beautiful, yet easy DIY? Would you like to own this kind of fairy garden?
