Nature Craft: DIY Garden Jar
May 24, 2018
Daisy loves to make nature crafts, and here is how to make her garden jar! Click on the image below for a printable PDF of this project, or scroll down for the instructions.
Head outside and collect some moss, soil, rocks and/or sand. Imagine what layers you would like to see in your garden jar.
Collect a jar, vase or clear containers. It's best if you can fit your hand through the opening that way you reach in to build your garden.
Place some dirt and rocks on the bottom of your jar. You can make a funnel out of paper to help pour in the sand. Next, add a layer of moss. What else would you like to add to your garden jar? You can add a succulent plant, an animal figure, a crystal or a gem. With a little imagination a simple jar can become a garden. What a wonderful way to bring a little bit of the outdoors inside!
Remember there is no right or wrong way to make a nature craft, so have fun!
