"This is really cute. I like how the pom poms add a little touch of color and pep to the wreath without overwhelming the natural look of the pine cones."
"Love it, will try to make"
"This idea is just too cute! I have never worked with Shrinky Dink before but after seeing this, I may just try it out. Her tutorial makes it look so easy!"

Celebrate the warming weather by making your very own Garden in a Bottle. You'll be reusing a plastic bottle, which is much better than throwing it in the garbage. Plastic bottle projects are fantastic because there's a good chance you already have what you need in your house. Garden crafts are some of the best ways to celebrate Earth Day or spend a rainy day inside with some plants. Bottle gardens also make great hostess gifts or guest favors. Be sure to pick plants that even someone with a black thumb could keep alive!
The editors of AllFreeHolidayCrafts.com absolutely love the Garden in a Bottle. As spring comes closer, I find myself drawn to plant life that has been buried or sleeping during winter. If the ground is still a little too frozen for outdoor gardening, then you can make a DIY terrarium like this one from recycled materials and bring the spring inside your home. This would be a fun project to do with a classroom or with your friends on a day that is almost warm.
It doesn't matter what kind of flowers or plants you put in this plastic bottle terrarium because it will be cute regardless. You probably have plastic bottles that you can re-use for something good for the environment! I can't wait for Earth Day to come around so I have a better excuse to make a few of these other than "I just want one." I'm going to adorn my window sills and my desk space with a bunch of different DIY terrariums using this tutorial. They are going to welcome spring into my home and brighten my mood and wellbeing in the last days of a long winter.

I want to say that I have a brown thumb when it comes to gardening. However this garden in a bottle gives me some hope. Such a simple project that can grace the office desk or adorn any table in any room of the house. This is the perfect gardening project for beginners as well as the seasoned. I love this. Being a Pepsi girl, my bottle will be made with a recycled Pepsi bottle.

This project really takes me back. When I was the science teacher for our fifth graders, the school system provided the opportunity to create ecosystems by supplying everything but guess what, the plastic bottle. They poured in from the kids and they really loved the final result. Earth on top, lake on the bottom.

This so cute! This would bring some green to my relatively dark apartment, plus it doesn't look too difficult to make.

This is such a fun project to do with kids, I remember making some myself when I was little. Perfect for rainy days when you can bring the outside, inside!

What a nice idea adirondackgirlatheart, it reminds me of a little garden where fairies are happy to visit. Its a great project for children and they can keep it on their dresser. I do know that terrariums should be kept out of direct sunlight to prevent excess condensation and to keep the plants from getting sunburned.

I'm seeing mini garden crafts everywhere, and they're really making me want to make all of them. This seems to be a bit easier to manage than, you know, an entire garden. Hopefully my "black thumb" and I will be able to keep these plants alive this time.

AH! I love this cute little garden craft. I'd totally make them as wedding favors, too.

Thanks Kaylee! What a wonderful idea. I've been planning on making some with 20 oz bottles and they would be the perfect size for favors )
