years ago, we made a DIY snow globe with odin. it’s super simple! go to a thrift shop and find an ornament that has a base that can be glued to the “globe” base. find a old jar, globe shaped or not. hot glue the ornament to the lid of the jar. fill the jar with water and add a few drops of glycerin and glitter. whoila! easy peasy!
yup. still making mossariums. at just 4 inches high, it’s a cutesy and just the right size for decorating with a couple of snail shells odin and his cousin collected a few years ago.
we enjoyed making the orb mossarium so much that we made more. this one is about 6 inches wide and a foot high. it has fancy top that’s not shown.
the sea urchin shells and moss came from our vacation in maine.
you, yes you, can make your very own mossarium by following the instructions on jessamyn’s mossarium emporium.
jessamyn west, a long time internet friend, maintains a jessamyn’s mossarium emporium which we think is pretty neat. on a recent trip to maine, we collected some moss and when we returned to wisconsin we thought it’d be fun to make a few mossariums to have around the house to remind us of the trip and the area.
this 4 inch hanging orb is one of several we made. a simple and fun project that’s a great reminder of a time and place. thanks jessamyn for the easy to follow instructions ( and hurray for the independent web )!
on time and under budget 🙂 he had to make a few modification to his original plan based on string supply but i think it turned out great!
the E key near the middle C stopped working on our upright piano so for some reason i thought it’d be a great idea to take the piano apart. i have never taken a piano apart. this is the thing that broke and i broke another thing while trying to fix this thing.
though i usually have great faith in the power of wood glue and clamps, i think i might be in over my head and probably should have just called a professional.
