Materials

Mason Jars (make sure they have a “smooth” side– no writing)

Puffy Paint

Green Spray Paint

 

Directions

1. Wash, clean and dry jars. “Draw” a simple design or word with Puffy Paint.

2. Let them dry overnight.

3. Spray-paint the bottles in a well-ventilated area. Uses 4-5 light coats of paint, allowing each layer to completely dry.

 

3)  DIY Moss Terrarium Craft (It's Kid-friendly!)

Cr. Parent Pretty

Materials

Glass container

Small pebbles

Activated charcoal

Potting soil

Moss or other small plants

Bamboo skewer

Optional larger rocks for decoration

Directions
1. Prepare a Mason Jar.

2. Create a false drainage system for the plant roots by adding a 1-inch thick layer of small pebbles.

3. Add a thin layer of activated charcoal. You can purchase this at a pet store. The charcoal will help keep the water fresh and will help prevent mold and bacteria build-up.

4. Add a layer of soil. You can use potting soil, we used soil from our yard.

5. Place your plants in the terrarium. Use a bamboo skewer to make small holes, and place different types of moss in the jar, starting with larger plants near the back. We used a few nice rocks for decoration.
