Lightbulb Terrarium

About: I'm crazy and ready to try any craft!

This is what the finished product will look like! You can leave it in your window or just outside. You can put the plants on the side or bottom.

Step 1:

To start off you will need a regular lightbulb.Then you can use a screwdriver or diamond filers to either cut the metal completely off or just poke a hole through it like I have done here. After this you will need to wash out the dust inside that gives it a white tint.

Step 2:

Next use the tweezers to put dirt and the plants inside the lightbulb. The plants that I have used normally is moss or small clovers and other plants appear later that we're apparently in the dirt.

Step 3:

Now pour a little bit of water in and seal it with a cork or tin foil or pretty much anything you can find to seal it.

And voila! You can make tons of these and make a tree out of them or just put it in your window sill

    This looks really cool. But will direct sunlight cook the plants?
