Obsession: Moss

2 Apr
If you thought I was going to make one little terrarium and stop there, you’re kidding yourself.
I mean, there I was, me and all my glass bottles and my new-found friend, preserved reindeer moss (a.k.a. the coolest shit ever). Seriously, it makes everything magical. Like candlesticks. Magical enchanted forest candlesticks.

What You’ll Need:
Taper candles
Clear glass bottles
Stuff to put inside them, for example:
Reserved reindeer moss, of course
Pebbles
Dried beans
Sand
Dirt
Roots
Twigs
Dried flowers
Shells
Marbles



Okay, so, this isn’t brain surgery. Put cool stuff in a bottle, then put a candle in it and you have a totally rad candlestick.
My candlesticks!

Dried beans, soil, and moss in a salad dressing shaker

But why stop there? What about votives in jars?


Move aside, Tinkerbell. There’s a new fairy in town.
