Introduction: Terrarium With Lasers! I Made This at Techshop!

What to make a sweet terrarium, but out of good ideas? Make yourself one using lasercut animals! 


Step 1:

Things you will need

-Glass Vessel. ( You can have one with a lid or with out, If you have one without a lid you just have to make sure to mist the moss with water every couple of days. Moss likes damp!)
-Potting soil
-Pepples
-dry moss
-live moss
-collection os naturals such as sticks and stones. 
-Laser Cut goodies. 

Step 2: Step Number One.

Fill the bottom of your glass vessel with Pebbles! 


Step 3: Step 2

Add a layer of dry moss on top of pebbles. This is to prevent the soil from mixing up in the rocks. 

Step 4: Step 3

Add a layer of soil. Make sure you leave enough room to put moss along the top! 

Step 5: Step 4

Now its time to put in the moss!! You can get moss from your local nursery, or if yo are feeling adventurous grab a bucket and go moss hunting in the woods! 

Step 6: Step 5

Add in the laser cut animals!! 

Step 7: Step 6

Put the finishing touches to your terrarium by adding in some rocks and little sticks to make it look like a little forest. Make sure your animals have enough room to roam in there new little world! 


*to ensure that your moss stayed fresh make sure it is sprayed every three days if your terrarium is lidless. 

Enjoy! 

These makes great gifts.  :)
