Awhile back I found these cute little kodama figures on Amazon, and for such a cheap price too! I knew I wanted them for something, but hadn’t figured out just yet what it would be. Last month I noticed a perfect glass vase with a lid in our basement that wasn’t being used, and that’s when the idea for a terrarium came! This wasn’t going to be a living plant terrarium, but I did want to use natural elements to make it.
I found a perfect stick in our garden, trimmed it down to size, then used craft glue to stick the moss and the figures on it. I filled the bottom of the glass with a bit of aquarium gravel, and a few shiny marbles to catch the light. It was really easy and fun to put together, and I love the end result.
I didn’t end up using all of the kodama figures, so I might have to come up with something else for the other two in the future. Are you a Studio Ghibli fan?
