DIY Terrarium Magnets: Make Your Own Tiny Vertical Garden!

DIY Terrarium Magnets: Make Your Own Tiny Vertical Garden!

Oh my goodness.  This may be one of the coolest DIY terrarium / vertical garden / house plant projects I've ever seen.  I don't know about you, but the thought of making my own tiny magnetic vertical garden is enough to make me want to cover every surface in my house in a magnetic material (or, at the very least, have one giant magnetic wall)!

These mini garden tins were created by the clever folks at Ruffled for use as wedding favors.  I like the idea of making a few (okay, A LOT) for use in the kitchen, in an office, on the patio, or for any surface I can put a magnet on.  I can even picture a cool installation piece on a large wall using a few dozen of these bad boys.  If you're as excited about them as I am, let's see what we'll need to start making our own little vertical gardens!

Materials:

  • Gravel (can be found at any pet store in the aquarium section)
  • Air plants, cactus or succulents (you will need a small amount of potting soil if not using air plants)
  • Moss
  • White spray paint
  • Magnetic metal tins (available from IKEA)
  • Dremel tool
  • Painter’s tape
  • E6000 glue

Once you've procured all your supplies, hit up Ruffled for the full how-to!

So, let's hear it.  How or where would you display your tiny terrarium?  On the fridge?  On the memo board at work?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

I have seen these at a wedding I was at a few weeks ago!  It was very cool and something I had never seen before.  It a neat idea for a personalized wedding gift from Pittsburgh.  It doesn't seem that difficult to make either?  I will need to try it out!
