Tractor Supply Inspired Fairy Garden

 I bought this seamless steel pan at Tractor Supply for only $2.99. 
I knew immediately how it could be used.

I just don't need a drink tray that often so it sat in the pantry.  
I started thinking about other alternatives for this piece.

I got some coconut liner out of the shed and got carpel tunnel cutting it to size. 
Coconut liner is used to line hanging baskets. 
I think it looks like moss. 

 Tractor supply,

I layered it with the different mosses I've been collecting for years. 
Just kidding - Hobby Lobby collected them for me.

Mr. Troll is fine with it.

Mrs. Troll feels that it will be fine once she has slathered it in white paint.

Mr. Troll was like "Whatever, as long as you don't turn my mancave into a Pottery Barn."

  "Oops, too late." said Mrs. Troll. 

As much as I have loved the banter between Mr. and Mrs. Troll, this was not my favorite way to use this pan.

I pulled out my grandmother's collection of antique kitchen tools and plunked them in the pan.
