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!
- 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)
- 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!
