Whenever I felt something new, I always Google or YouTube it first. Sometimes other people have different ideas to make something that might save a little bit of time. Sometimes there isn’t anything and you just have to make it up.
After wet felting for a few days, I wanted to do something different. So, I needle felted a terrarium, as one does!
I did find a video on how to make succulents and I found some images on Google. The Google images inspired me to make the above. I managed to make it in two afternoons. In the end, I had to wing it as there are no jade plant tutorials. I already had a container I found at a charity shop. It had a hideous display of dried grasses with a paper butterfly. I ripped that out and painted the base with chalk paint.
Here is the finished product. I felted the earth and attached the succulents to that. Then I glued the whole thing to the base and glued on some sea pebbles from my garden. It now sits on my mantle piece. I love it so much that I almost want to keep it, but it is a present, so I will have to find another glass vessel and make one for myself! 🙂
