Recycling bottles into terrariums!

Often times we think about making a project and our minds go quickly to the stuff we have to buy! But, there are an amazing number of things you can do, when it comes to terrariums, without buying anything.

This is because there are lots and lots of interesting glass containers and jars out there that would make for very interesting terrariums.

So, look through you cupboards and cabinets, and ask family members if they have any old glass containers and jars lying around!

Here are some pics of terrariums made by Badia A.

This shows us how much fun we can have by recycling all kinds of bottles, jars and jugs!

My thanks to Badia for the terrific pictures!

Terrarium Craft: Create 50 Magical, Miniature Worlds

Easy to make and a wonder to behold, jewel-like terrariums are winning over a new generation of crafters and gardeners. From the simplest of combinations, like a single bromeliad paired with tiny fragments of driftwood in a miniature globe, to incredibly intricate worlds of stones and bones, feathers and ferns, terrariums today marry gardening, fine-art, science, and a touch of modern whimsy, and they are the latest craze in crafting and indoor gardening.

Terrarium Craft is the first step-by-step project book for this new audience. Authors and nursery owners Amy Bryant Aiello and Kate Bryant offer up everything a beginning terrarium crafter needs to get started, from advice about tools and materials, information about plant choices and simple maintenance tips. 50 unique projects offer fantastical inspiration alongside easy-to-follow instructions and ingredients lists. From the nature-inspired combination of blue-tinted echevaria and a milky-white shell to the darkly beautiful pairing of pyrite, black moss, and begonias, there's a terrarium for every taste and style.
