Hi guys! Welcome to day twelve and the last day of my 12 Days of Christmas crafting! Today I am going to show you how to make these fun little hanging holiday terrariums! I found these awesome hanging terrariums at Michaels on sale months ago and thought it would be so fun to make Christmas terrariums this year with some of my vintage minis. These little gems are really fast and easy to make and look so fun hanging under my shelves!
Here’s What You Need:
*Small Hanging Glass Terrariums
*Christmas Minis like santa, deer, bottle brush trees
*Diamond Dust Glitter
The first thing you need to do is cut a slice of foam to fit your terrarium bottle. Take your ball and cut it in half. Then slice a sliver about a half inch thick. Trim your slice down around the edges until it fits inside the bottom of your terrarium. Repeat with any additional terrariums you have. Next, heat up your glue gun, and lay out your little scene of minis. Once you have a layout you like, glue your minis down to your foam. Next, insert your foam piece with the scene on it into the terrarium and centered in the bottom of the terrarium. Now, spoon the diamond dust into the terrarium over the bottom and the scene until you have enough to cover the bottom and around the foam. Now cut a long length of skinny ribbon. Loop it through the loop in the top of the terrarium and bring it up so that the ends meet. Tie a knot around the bottom where the terrarium loop is , then loop and knot the ribbon up near the top. To finish your jar off, tie a little bow around the top of the terrarium. Now you are ready to hang.
I love how these little winter scenes turned out. I love design elements that hang! They make me so happy, it’s a little sad really. If you love the look of the terrarium, but don’t want to hang it, sit it on a shelf. Or you can make it into an ornament. I found This sweet deer terrarium ornament from Emily and Erick over at Hello Home on Craftgawker last week. The possibilities are endless! I hope you all have enjoyed my 12 Days of Christmas Crafting! I will be back next week with some handmade gift tutorials. Until then…
