Garden in a Bottle
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.
