DIY Magnetic Terrariums

1. Trace & Cut

Place the top side of your lid on your plastic film for tracing. Next, trace the outer rim of the lid. By tracing the outer rim (and not the inside) of your lid, you're making sure that your circle will fit snuggly inside the lid when you're done. Cut out your circle, then repeat for each lid.

2. Fit & Glue

With your circle cut out, test its size by inserting it into the inside of the lid. If it's too large, trim a little off of the edges and fit again until you have just the right size. Cut your plastic circle in half to create a little peek-a-boo window for your terrarium. This will hold the ingredients in while allowing your plants to breathe. Apply a thin bead of glue around the edge of your plastic where it will sit in the lid. Then fit your plastic back inside the lid and set aside for about 15 minutes to dry.

3. Cultivate

Add your elements to your tin and style it up! Place your lid back onto your tin and turn it until it locks into place. Tilt your assembled terrarium upright and carefully touch up anything that's out of place. Now just attach to any magnetic surface and you have your very own, mini garden still life!

4. Air Plant Care

Place in light but not direct sunlight.To water your air plants,remove from container and spritz or soak with water for no more than 10 minutes every 2-3 days.No need to water your moss as it's preserved and will last for years.Water your air plant more often in a hot,dry environment.Be sure to lay plants out to dry,giving them enough air and light to dry but no longer than 4 hours after watering.It's important to keep your terrarium water-free,so make sure your air plant is nice and dry before placing back into container.
