DIY Pedestal Globe Candle Holder/Terrarium/Fish Bowl

DIY Pedestal Globe 4

This project was not complicated at all. I had a small silver vase from flowers given to me when I gave birth to our daughter and I purchased the small fish bowl from a local thrift shop for $.35.

I just inverted the flower vase and glued the two pieces together using the E6000 glue that I purchased from Michaels. You can add some glass marbles and a tealight for a cute centerpiece or you can also simply use this as a fish bowl (if the bowl is new and hasn’t been washed with soap).

My son helped to put together the terrarium pictured above. For directions on putting together your own terrarium see:

DIY Terra Cotta Fairy House Planter

I can’t wait to plant a cute fern or flower in this. This was pretty simple and quick to put together, even with my limited painting skills.

Materials

Terra cotta pieces – purchased from Henery Hardware

Decorative Door – Michaels

Marbles – Dollar store or Michaels (I had some left over from a previous project. Actually purchased mine from a local thrift store).

Glue for terra cotta, door and marbles – E6000 from Michaels

Instructions

1 – Paint each terra cotta piece.

2 – Seal pieces with a clear coat of spray enamel. (This planter is going outside in the mini garden I’m creating and I don’t want the paint to get washed away by the rain).

3 – Glue the two bottom pieces together. Leave the top pot free. It’ll be much easier to place a plant in it.

4 – Next, glue the door and marbles to the front of the bottom piece.
