If you know me, you know that I love plants but also have a slight problem keeping them alive. I’m always trying to find ways to enjoy plants that don’t involve killing them, and today’s project is right up my alley! I’m sharing a DIY Mini Faux Terrarium Necklace Tutorial that will live foreeeever :).
With just a handful of fun supplies, you can make one for yourself (and perhaps 10 of your closest friends?).
Let’s get to work!
How to Make a Terrarium Necklace
mini glass vial – I used a mini hildie & jo vial found in the jewelry section at my local Jo-Ann store that had a screw eye attached to the cork, but these mini vials would also work by adding your own screw eyes
mini rocks – I used tiny gold decorative rocks found at my local Jo-Ann store
mini faux flower
chain and lobster claw (with jump rings attached)
e-6000 glue and toothpick

- Remove cork from vial. Because the screw eye attached was silver, I covered the cork with painting tape, excluding the screw eye, and painted the screw eye gold. Once completely dry, I removed the tape.
- One by one, layer sand, rocks, moss, and a faux flower in the vial. Use toothpick as needed to place objects as desired.
- Use toothpick to dab e-6000 glue around inside top of vial. Replace cork, firmly pushing it into vial and glue. Allow to dry completely.
- If necessary, use jewelry pliers to shorten chain. Use pliers to open jump rings and secure to ends of chain, attaching lobster claw to necklace.
Great job! Now enjoy wearing your new favorite accessory!
