Isn't this just the cutest?
- Glass Jar (I used an old Ikea spice jar) The bigger the lid/neck the better
- Floral Oasis (3 disks for £1.59 in Hobbycraft. I used 1/2 a disk)
- A scrap of fabric. I chose hessian.
- Pretty things to add to your terrarium. The bird is an ex-Christmas decoration and the flowers are from the wedding aisle of Hobbycraft (£1.49 for about 12 wire stems I think) Fern leaves were cut from plastic flowers.
Cut the oasis to size. It will need to be a little smaller than the inside of the lid. I also sliced my oasis disk to half the depth. Wrap your fabric around the oasis and secure with a pin. You will want to check that the lid closes before you go any further.
Stick oasis to the lid. I used a glue gun, but superglue should work too.
Stand back and admire your work!
I love my new little creation (it's quite difficult to photograph with the funny angles on the glass) and I really have got the bug to make more. There are numerous jars (rescued from the recycling) that are having their labels soaked off as we speak.
If you have a go at making one of these little lovelies, let me know - I'd love to see a photo.
