Made with love: found terrariums

Made with love: found terrariums
There are lots of tutorials for terrariums floating around these days, but this one the terrarium turned on it’s head. Inspired by a pickle jar terrarium concocted by the warymeyers team, there are no fancy glass domes to buy and no scouring your local nursery for plants small enough to fit under them. In fact, there’s no buying at all. Everything you need is most likely located within a walk around the block, no matter where you live. CLICK HERE for the full project after the jump! What you’ll need: - Empty clear glass jar with screw on lid - A handful of scavenged moss with some extra soil attached - A plastic bag 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Related:  idées de recyclage

Capsules Nespresso et Spécial T créations - Bijoux… - A la vitesse de la… - Des capsules d'une… - Boucles d'oreilles… - Bagues "Nespresso"… Me revoici avec une nouvelle créa en capsules... Quoi d'étonnant ? Cette fois, il s'agit de la récup d'une table de salon déjà récupérée il y a 2 ans (voir ici) et qui en est maintenant à sa 3ème vie ! Je l'ai donc poncée, Puis je l'ai peinte en vert (avec un reste de peinture) avant de coller dessus (avec de la colle à carrelage) des capsules de café et de thé. Et voilà le résultat... Revue de détails : Cette table est destinée au jardin de la maison de Bourgogne... Les canettes font partie, avec les capsules (et les rouleaux de papiers hygiéniques, et les bobines et les bijoux cassés et...etc.) des stocks que j'amasse dans mon atelier. Sur le modèle des sorcières-capsuliennes que je vous avais déjà présentées à plusieurs reprises, voici la dernière née, "toute alu"... A la différence des précédentes, cette sorcière n'est pas à cheval sur son balai, mais suspendue par un bras... Et dans l'autre main, elle tient son chat... Mon mail : Noël 2011 est là ! Joyeux Noël !!!

How to grow a lemon tree from seed | Growing Wild When life gives you lemons, grow trees! If you’ve ever seen a flowering lemon tree, you’ll understand why. For those of you who haven’t, allow me explain. Their lush, dark green, oval leaves have a glossy texture that shimmers in sunlight. Their delicate white flowers bloom with a citrus fragrance and are soft to the touch. Typically, lemon trees flourish outdoors year-round in hot, sunny regions, but they can also thrive indoors as edible houseplants in cold-season climates. This is the little tree with big fruit in the shop I work at. And while rooting cuttings is a sensible option for fast fruit, lemon tree cuttings are not readily available in many parts of the world. Here is a step-by-step guide to growing your very own lemon tree from seed: Things you’ll need: 1. This is a Meyer lemon! 2. 3. 4. Method for sprouting the lemon seed: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

How to Build a Hardwood Floor This Weekend Believe it or not, I installed a beautiful hardwood floor by myself in just one weekend. How? I chose a DIY-friendly floating floor. Unlike typical hardwood flooring that must be nailed or glued down, floating floors are simply laid down over a thin foam-rubber pad. For this project, I chose the very latest in floating-floor material: Lyptus flooring manufactured by Weyerhaeuser. Floating floor planks typically range from about 3 to 8 in. wide, and usually require the installer to apply glue along the edge of each piece. Plan the Layout Work from left to right when laying the floor planks across the room, with the tongue edges facing out. If the last row ends up being less than 2 in. wide, you'll have to rip down the planks in the first row.

Coin Ring - Hacked Gadgets - DIY Tech Blog If you have a bit of time and some change in your pocket why not make a cool ring for yourself. I always thought it was illegal to do this type of thing, but it seems that if you don’t intend to use the coin as currency every again it is not illegal. “First you need a piece of steel to use as a base for the coin to set on. Take the coin and stand it on edge. Tap the reeded edge with a spoon or a small machinist hammer while continually rotating the coin, I would recommend using the spoon first until you get the hang of how the silver feels when it folds.

garagestoragetluweyen *Garage Storage Solution*By: Tluweyen2 February 2010 If you are like my family, we are constantly short on space in our house. Rather than buy a huge McMansion, we bought what we could afford and ended up with a ranch house with about 2000 square feet. While this is big compared to previous generations, it seems ours has more “stuff”. After searching around at various stores, including WalMart and Target, I found exactly what I was looking for at Lowes. These totes are just under 30 inches long with allows me to place two rows in the trailer and hang them in rows of two on the ceiling. For what I did here are the materials needed. 12 of the above totes $11.67 each (Lowes)4 – 1x4x10 boards $2.91 each (Lowes)4 – 2x4x10 $3.69 each (84 Lumber)16 – 3/8x8 lag screws $1.89 each (84 Lumber)16 – 3/8 washers $1.04 per bag needed 4 bags (Lowes)40 – 4” deck screws $8.99 for one box (Lowes)Total cost $209.95 Lowes did not have 1x4x10 but they had 1x4x8. These boards are pretty secure into the joists.
