Do you love eco-friendly crafts? How about succulent plants? Combine the two by creating your own whimsical land of tiny garden fairies, mushrooms, moss and more with this DIY terrarium wine bottle world. This project is simple is completed using artificial moss and succulents for those of us with less than a green thumb. What great gifts, home décor and centerpieces for your woodland themed birthday party these would make!
-Cut wine bottles with varying heights (See How to Cut Wine Bottles)
-Various artificial succulents
-Hot glue gun and sticks
-mini mushrooms, fairies and gnomes (found in most hobby stores for doll houses and miniature trains)
-Glass knobs or big glass prism or crystal beads
-Latex or nylon gloves are optional
-Various round objects for the base of your wine bottle cloches; jar lids, candle lids, etc.
Clean the surface of your cloche base and begin hot gluing your moss and filler.
Build with layers, adding miniatures and succulents.
When you are satisfied with your scene, place your cut wine bottle cloche top over the tiny world you created. You can glue this if you would like. I left mine removable so I could change things later.
To add a special touch, use E6000 to glue a knob or glass bead to the top.
￮ Cut the metal threading off of antique flea market drawer pull using bolt cutters, for a flat surface you can glue onto the top of your cloche.
