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:

Creative Hobbit House

Today we had an amazing trip to a local nursery and its very creative hobbit house. The Brothers Greenhouses in Port Orchard, Washington is full of beautiful, lush, healthy plants. The hobbit house itself is covered in succulents and flowers. It is such an adorable piece of art. It has a fully functional round hobbit sized door, a fireplace and cute round windows.

The kids loved the house. It could definitely be a child’s dream playhouse. It was just the right size for our little hobbits.

I’m in the process of researching how to create and care for a terrarium. The nursery’s owners/staff were very friendly and super helpful. I found a few new succulents, moss, and rocks to add to my creation. I was very inspired by their adorable miniature gardens.

Along side the beautiful plants, the nursery also sold a plethora or fairy and miniature garden items. It was truly hard not to walk away with purchasing more than what I needed for my first terrarium. We will most certainly be back!
