Introduction: Mini Garden Sphere
This miniature sphere holds a little garden and a convenient watering system.
-little pieces of lined paper
-one of those little plastic spheres that cheap toys come in
-a little funnel
-a hobby knife, or drill, or awl (I used a combination of drill and awl)
-seeds (optional, if you want you could just have a mini soil sphere)
Step 1: Drawing the Hole
Using a Permanent marker, make a little circle. Try to make it as large as the width of your funnel nose. Make sure to put it on the side that you want as the top.
Step 2: Making the Hole
Cut, drill, or stab the hole open. I made a hole with the awl and then drilled it larger but you could try cutting it with a hobby knife.
Step 3: Putting the Funnel Nose In
Try to put it in lightly, so it does not form a crack, if it does, just hot glue it closed. After you have the nose in, hot glue it in.
Step 4: Readying Both Sides
Coat the other half with wet paper. This will act as a bed. Pour your soil into the side with the paper in it.
Step 5: Completing It
Put seeds in if you have any and shut the ball. Shake it around a bit so the soil gets mixed up with the seeds.
Step 6: Watering
Whenever you need to water the garden, pour it through the funnel. Do not water it too often because there is no drainage and it will start to flood.
