Light Bulb Terrariums

How genius is the idea of using light bulbs as miniature terrariums? What a fun DIY project. They make wonderful place cards for your next party (and they double as favors too)!

What you'll need:
  • Light bulbs (globe, incandescent, clear)
  • Tillandsias (also known as air plants)
  • Dry moss
  • Spray paint
  • Self adhesive silicone bumpers
  • Place cards (with care instructions printed on opposite side)
  • Metal wire

  • Hollow out light bulbs (make sure to wear safety goggles). Great tutorial here
  • Spray paint the cap of the light bulb for a cleaner look
  • Use Tillandsias & moss to fill the terrariums
  • Attach silicone bumpers on the bottom for stability
  • Hole punch place card & secure with metal wire
