Cereal Box Flower Garden

We love pretty flowers!


Here is how you can recycle some stuff you probably can find around the house into a fairy flower garden. A package of flower seeds can be found at local hardware stores or even some dollar stores or discount stores.


What you will need:

  • Empty cereal box
  • Plastic shopping bag
  • Dirt
  • Pebbles, marbles, small rocks
  • Flower seeds
  • Scissors
  • Marker or crayon


Here are the easy steps:

  1. Lay the cereal box down so the front of the box is on the table. Draw a line around the back of the box around 1 inch from the edge.
  2. Have your adult help to cut out the back of the box along the line so you now have a hole in the back of the box.
  3. Put the plastic shopping bag in the hole and spread it out to fill up as much of the space.
  4. Fill the plastic shopping bag with dirt up to the edge of the box.
  5. Make sure to smooth out the dirt on top for a level space to make your fairy garden.
  6. Plant the flower seeds around the edge, in the middle, make a pattern with the flower seeds.
  7. Place marbles, pebbles, or small rocks around the garden.
  8. Water the flowers and set it in a spot where the flowers will get some light.
  9. Be sure to water the seeds at least once a week so that they will grow.
  10. Enjoy your Fairy Flower Garden.
