Are fairy gardens not your thing? No worries at all! Today I am going to show you a fun and frugal alternative to the fairy garden. All you need is about $5 worth of supplies and you will be enjoying endless fun in no time. This dinosaur garden is perfect for the dino lover in your household. It is a great way to teach children about dinosaurs, gardening, and even how to care for a living thing while having lots of fun at the same time. Take a peek below at how to make your own DIY Dinosaur Garden so you can be enjoying this prehistoric fun this weekend!

Dinosaur Garden

Supplies needed:
Planter or tin box
Potting soil
Prehistoric looking plants such as aloe and succulents
Plastic dino toys

We found everything we needed for around $5 at our local dollar store and greenhouse. You can find these plants for about $1 each, and most dollar stores sell the toys dinos as well as the planters and soil even for $1 each. As you can see, this is some fun you can enjoy on a dime!

Directions:
1. Begin by filling the container of your choice with soil.
2. Plant the plants of your choosing. As mentioned, succulents and aloe look great!
3. Add in your dinosaurs and other props such as rocks for caves.

Tend to your dinosaur garden with a little water every few days. You can also move your dinosaurs around for some fun if you wish!

Let’s enjoy a little frugal fun today, shall we? Take a look at how just $1 in materials can help you create a flower pot that is so fabulous and fun. I was able to whip this example up in just minutes, yet it looks picture perfect, like something that is table ready for a garden party or bridal shower. Take a look below at how you can turn $1 into a cute flower pot like this one. After a long week, you will love a simple and time saving craft like this.

$1 Flower Pot Makeover

Supplies needed:
Rick rack
Scissors
Hot glue, glue gun

We found a package of rick rack at Target in their dollar section. They have several color combos to pick from and the colors are perfect for spring. A package of four different varieties is just $1. WOW!

Directions:
1. Begin by wrapping the rick rack around the pot. Cut the pieces to fit.
2. Apply glue to the back of the rick rack and wrap it around the pot. Press the piece to secure it.
3. Repeat this process using all of the coordinating variations. This will add tons of texture to the pot.
4. Once your rick rack is dry, go ahead and fill up your pot as usual. Any plant is sure to look lovely in it.

$1 turns an old flower pot into something fabulous, don’t you agree? Head to Target and grab a package of this rick rack yourself and whip up some magic. Then, when you are done share your creations with us on the Facebook page or Community Chat page. We would love to see them.
