DIY Vertical Terrarium Mini Garden Wedding Favors We’re approaching the end of our DIY wedding favor series, but I guarantee you will love our last picks as much as the first ones. These vertical terrarium wedding favors make great gifts because they don’t take any room, and are extremely easy to maintain. Who wouldn’t want to bring a little bit of the outdoors to their home or office? - Gravel (can be found at any pet store in the aquarium section) - Air plants, cactus or succulents (you will need a small amount of potting soil if not using air plants) - Moss - spray paint - magnetic metal tins (from here or here, you just need to slap magnetic tape on the back!) - Dremel tool - painter’s tape - E6000 glue Cover your tins with painter’s tape before you begin spray painting the inside of them.

I had a really old keyboard lying around that I planned to use to make a Keylendar. Upon opening it up I noticed that the circuit sheets were a really pretty bluey/green colour. I thought this would make a great lampshade. For the light source I used an LED puck light connected to a USB cable so that I can have it near my computer. The light cast through the lampshade is not overly bright but it makes for nice mood lighting. Keyboard Circuit Sheet Lampshade Keyboard Circuit Sheet Lampshade
Now that you have a length and a width, the next step is to staple gun two pieces of elastic down the middle of the board. I'm going to be suspending 12 books here, so I used just over 14 feet of material for each side. Start each piece of elastic with the excess facing in. Staple this in place and fold the elastic back over to start running it down the board. Measure out 14 inches, staple it one inch farther and repeat until you get to the other end and fold the excess back inside again before stapling it.
