If you have a broken pot you’ve been meaning to throw away why not build a fairy garden inside it instead! Layer two more pots inside and fill with shells and succulents before adding your mermaid , her dolphin friend and the treasure chest she is protecting.

If you need a mermaid treasure chest you can get one here.
