Tutorial Tuesday: Tiny Terrarium Necklace

October 18, 2011

DIY Tiny Terrarium Necklace

This necklace has been in the back of my mind for a long time now, but when I was going through my craft supplies to find the crystals for the crystal boutonniere tutorial I came across these tiny glass bottles. Sometimes I think I’m a craft supply hoarder, but the fact that I was able to make this necklace without buying any new supplies totally justifies it in my mind. Though I have been purging supplies lately just to make things easier to find. I’m sure I’ll be sorry when I go to whip something like this up and I’ve given away the materials.

Materials:
Tiny glass bottle -Mine is 1.5 inches tall, not including the stopper, but there are some similar ones on Amazon here and here.
Tiny crystals that fit in your bottle -Mine are leftovers from the batch I bought here, but only a few out of the 20 crystals were small enough to fit in my bottle.
Preserved moss
Pebbles or sand – I used gravel chips that I found outside, and I crushed them with a hammer to get them small enough.
Wire
Necklace hain
Pliers
Tweezers
Toothpick

Methods:
