Next I use some used envelope I found.

- I cut it to long and small pieces, and then I crush it until it turns like a dry grass.

- decorate it as you like by using glue ( for example, here I made it like a vine )

- For the front side, I add cinnamons, sticks, and few plants I found from my yard

Step 4: Decorate Top Part

For the top part, I use the brown envelope again

- cut the envelope, but leave some part of it uncut

- Fold it to be 2 layered

- Repeat the step above until the roof is covered

Step 5: Make Inside Decoration

- For the terrarium, you can google about how to make a good terrarium out of plants you have.

- For the inside decoration, you can make anything you want with everything you found, for example here I make a garden chair from a stick.

- Arrange your plant inside the bottle as the theme you choose, for example here I make it to be like a garden. You can also make it like desert, forest, etc.

And there you go, you just turn useless plastic bottle to beautiful room decoration, hope you like it :)
