Reusing Lightbulbs as mini terrariums

October 13th, 2011 - 

 

Even if it is not a very new idea, I still like at and find it inspiring. To have such a tiny world of your own, directly on your desk. Rivers, stones, beautiul places, anything cand be created! All you have to do is to add some water inside from time to time and you will be rewarded with a little bit of nature every day, on your desk. Two tillandsia plants, also known as air plants, are nestled along with preserved reindeer moss in river stones held in place with glossy polyester resin. Do not forget to leave the top of the bulb opened. I found on Etsy a lot of lightbulb
aquariums or terrariums that you can buy for less than 30 $. And if not, you can make one at home, as you like. For other creative use of old lightbulbs see the Instructables site.
