How To Make A Hanging Terrarium Ornament
A big thanks to the lovely Yuka Yoneda from Inhabitat for sharing this tutorial. Check out the original article here.
You’ll need the following materials:
- Moss, plants and/or twigs small enough to fit into your terrarium ornaments
- Reusable glass ornament orb
- Some Soil
- A chain or string
- (optional) Figurines or other fun tsotchkes to place inside your ornament
Start off with some greenery that you will use to place inside your ornament.
Then, start putting some plants in the glass orb. Sprinkle a little water on the plants to make sure that plants have enough moisture. Take note that the plants should not be too crowded together.
Accentuate your DIY greenery ornament by popping in some figurines, little toys, or studs into the mix to make it a little bit more interesting. Here, we’ve added a golden unicorn (old earring) inside this pretty DIY project.
If you think everything’s in place and you’re content with the way everything on the inside of your DIY terrarium Christmas ornament looks, you can now pop the top back on the glass orb. Use your chain or string to hang it from your Christmas tree by threading it through the loop on top of the ornament.
Tie a ribbon around the chain of your DIY terrarium ornament to give it a more festive and stunning look.
And finally, hang your DIY terrarium Christmas ornament from your Christmas tree where everyone can see and admire it!
