Light bulb terrarium

by Donna Shipley
This was the subject of a workshop at a local nursery. We carefully removed the end of the light bulb with needle-nose pliers, removed the interior glass. The inside paint was removed by swirling sugar. Then we added a little gravel, bits of moss, tiny plants and other decorations, if we wanted to. The final step was about 10 sprays of water. The finished terrarium will last about 3 months and was a fun little project.

    If you add a fertilizer, maybe miracle grow, I wonder if it will live longer than 3 months?
