Dollar Store Picture Frame Terrarium
Terrariums are hot right now and so are the prices. Using six to eight dollar store picture frames, you can make one for a lot less.
Begin by removing the back and "picture" from each frame.
Remove the glass.
Add a drop of glue to each corner.
Place the glass back into the frame and allow to dry for an hour.
To make the bottom, run a bead of E6000 glue along the edge of each 8" x 10" frame. Put the frame edges together.
Using Painter's tape , tape each corner after applying glue. Allow to dry one hour.
Using the four 4" x 6" frame, make the roof.
Put a bead of glue along the long edges. Place one edge of the smaller frame onto the edge of the bottom and the other edge along the edge of the other 4" x 6" frame to make the roof's peak.
Put painter's tape on your joints and allow to dry one hour.
Remove the painter's tape and enjoy your new terrarium!
These could also be used outdoors. You could also paint your frames before construction using spray paint.
This is another one I created by using six document frames (like the one to the left of the terrarium). So simple and so cool.
