Also, expect to spend a good $200 on this project, depending on what you already have on hand and what you need to buy.
Step One: Assemble the base of your terrarium. You can see from the photo above how I (very simply) put mine together. Basically you're going to make a short table with a lip that is sized to fit your plexi box inside.
Step Two: Assemble your terrarium box. You'll be using electrical tape and the weld-on #4 to fuse the corners together. These sheets can be cut down by you or the hardware staff. They also come in different pre-cut sizes.
Step Three: Create the top piece by fusing two plexi sheets (one smaller than the other) together.
Step Four: Fill any edges of your base with wood filler and then paint the base.
Step Five: The funnest part of this project is the creation of the contents. Have fun with rocks, plants and

Make This Shelf In 1 Hour - DIY
Totally serious! Yes--you can make this cute shelf with cute curves in about an hour. To add color to this woodworking project, all you have to do is get spray paint, sealant and wait for it to dry, which means it won't be done in an hour. Maybe 2-3 hours. Supplies Needed: -DPI board (you only need one sheet) -a pine board (1 x 6 x 8 would be just enough) -10 wood screws -paint & polyurethane -saw tooth picture hangers (optional) Tools: -table saw (you could get away with just using a hand saw) -drill -square -2 clamps (or a pair of helping hands) Step One: Cut 2 strips of DPI (each 6" x 48") and one board at 6" x 28 11/16". On either end of those pieces, measure and mark in 3 inches. Step Two: From here, it's just a matter of taking one side of each of the DPI pieces and putting them together, overlapping by 3 inches, then clamping them together. (Clamp on the end of each piece. You want room to screw into the middle shelf.) Make sure to keep the shiny side on the outside. After one side is clamped,very carefully, bend the two unclamped ends together, overlapping by 3 inches, and then clamp those. TIP: DPI will bend, but when you are bending it, do it slowly and without applying too much pressure to one single section, or it will snap. Step Three: Once the circle is formed, and if you did your math right, the center piece should fit nicely. From there, you can hold boards up wherever you want them and mark. Then cut. If the piece hits right in the middle of the circle, you won't need to cut angles. Step Five: After the pieces are cut and looking good in their respective spots, hold a speed square up to them while screwing them in... gotta keep the wonkiness to a minimum. Step Six: Finally, you can just put a screw or nail in the wall, hang the shelf on it, and call it a day. Or spend 5 more minutes and put a couple saw tooth hangers on the back for extra stability.

Pinus durangensis - Durango pine, Pino blanco, Pino real (Spanish)
Conservation Status Red List Category & Criteria: Near Threatened The large extent of occurrence and the area of occupancy based on comprehensive locality sampling and a grid width of 10 km because this is a forest forming species, both place it outside a threatened category. However, exploitation has reduced formerly “extensive pure forests in Durango and southern Chihuahua… to only scattered, open stands over most of its range” (Perry 1991). It is therefore listed as Near Threatened as it nearly meets the criteria A2cd; B2ab(ii,iii,v) for listing as threatened. Although this decline has not ceased there is insufficient data to allocate one of the threatened categories. The change in status since the previous assessment of Least Concern, can therefore be seen as a genuine recent change. Populations have been substantially reduced within the last 25 years due to exploitation, fires and forest clearance. The decline is ongoing. In the Sierra Madre this species is an important constituent of the 'yellow pine' forest, where it occurs in pure stands or mixed with several other species of pine, e.g. Pinus arizonica, Pinus leiophylla, and Pinus engelmannii, or in pine-oak forests. This pine is adapted to grow on shallow, rocky soils, but its better stands are found on deeper soils, where it can successfully compete with most other pines. The soils are mostly derived from volcanic rock. At the highest elevation Pinus durangensis occurs with Abies and/or Cupressus lusitanica, at the lowest with Juniperus deppeana and Pinus oocarpa. Other pines are Pinus montezumae, Pinus teocote and in the southern part of its range Pinus ayacahuite can occur with it. In addition this species is associated with Quercus sideroxyla, Quercus rugosa, Pinus ayacahuite and Pseudotsuga (Garcia and Gonzalez 2003). Durango pine is an important timber tree. It grows straight and tall and is (or was) abundant and wide spread in many areas within its range. Logging from natural stands at the current rate is unsustainable and plantations are now being attempted in the state of Durango. The timber is used for construction such as roof beams, general carpentry, furniture, floors, and plywood. This species is virtually unknown in horticulture. https://conifersgarden.com/rare-conifers/pinus-durangensis

Types Of Painting
Painting might seem an easy task to do with its definition being so simple, but there's poetry in every stroke of color and a story behind each picture that an artist or painter wants to portray. Painting has been a method of displaying art for a long period and there have been different techniques to do so. There are a variety of painting procedures and each of them is beautiful and unique on its own. A beginner needs great dedication and patience to pursue the journey of being an artist and to learn any painting technique completely. We have previously covered some of the painting techniques in our first blog about the same. Here we present other styles of painting that are currently popular that one can try and get along with. Watercolor Painting Watercolor painting is as common as oil and acrylic painting. This is a well-known technique in which the colors are mixed with water to create the art. The paper sheets are used to create watercolor art most of the time. Watercolors, on the other hand, can be used to create art on bark paper, soap sheets, wooden blocks, and papyrus. Even finger paintings with watercolors are done in many parts of the world, such as China. Pencil Sketches I am one of those people who are fond of watching pencil sketches. The depth and details can just blow away your mind. It takes effort to understand the tones and grades for each piece and part of the art. These are made from graphite materials. Pencils are most often used because of their simplicity and versatility. Graphite can be smudged like kohl and thus can enhance the beauty of anything depicted on paper; it simply brings your thoughts to life. Glass Paintings Ever visited monuments and wondered about the beauty of glass paintings? The Greek and Roman cultures have portrayed some delightful art through glass paintings. The multicolor display of images and thoughts is amazing and gets even more personified when the light passes through the medium. It simply illuminates the locations. You can find them at old monuments and churches as well. They are inspired by the concept of stained glass painting. Collage Painting It is a very beautiful form of art. It is formed by assembling various creative pieces to form a visual effect of an image. A collage can be made from a variety of materials, including paper scraps, ribbons, magazines, newspapers, paint colors, and so on. is the accumulation of different pieces of art brought together to represent a single entity. It can have various themes and requires less budget yet comes out as an astonishing piece of art. Spray Painting. These are made out of aerosol painting sprays and are specially used on walls. They are magnificent; the colored area is kept open, while the other area is closed to keep the color from spreading all around them. These are the other painting techniques that exist and are trending today. Visit sites like Shopify to buy your painting essentials.

How To Spray Paint Fresh Flowers
Since I can't get blue roses for my wedding, I looked into dying them blue, which can be done, but with limited success and too much labor and time. Instead, I stumbled upon this informational tutorial about getting the job done but with floral spray paint. Here are five methods for spraying fresh flowers for your wedding or any other use. Technique 1: Misting Hold the can 15" - 18" away from the flower when spraying. Move the flowers, not the can. Let it dry before adding coats. Tip here is to layer the color. Technique 2: Air Brushing Hold the can 20" away from the flower when spraying. Move the flowers, not the can. Here, you're just highlighting. Do not apply full coverage. Technique 3: Toning Hold the can 15" - 18" away from the flower when spraying. Hit just the edges of the petals to tone the flower. Don't completely cover the blossom. Technique 4: Back Spray Hold the can 15" - 18" away from the flower when spraying. Flat and wide single petal flowers are best for this. Mist the flowers ONLY from the back to develop deeper intensity. Technique 5: Tipping Hold the can 15" - 18" away from the flower when spraying. This works best for roses and carnations. Cup the flowers in your hand so just the tips are bunched together and exposed. After spraying, you will notice that just the tips are marked with color. If you've ever tried to dye your flowers and have found quick solid success, I would love to hear from you. My wedding theme is Tiffany Blue and as the new year gets closer to my wedding day, I still haven't figured out the flowers. HELP!! <3 Thank you!
DIY Magnetic Tin Terrarium
- Gravel - Air plants, cactus or succulents - Moss - spray paint - magnetic metal tins - Dremel tool - painter’s tape - E6000 glue Cover your tins with painter’s tape before you begin spray painting the inside of them. Spray tins with 3-4 light coats until they have are opaque in solid white. While your tins are drying, remove the acrylic top from all lids by putting a small amount of pressure with your hands to pop them off. Measure the diameter and mark a line with a permanent marker. Using the diamond cutter tip of your Dremel tool, slice all acrylic lids in halves (you can also try different shapes or drill holes). Lightly sand the edges using a sander tip of your Dremel tool. Place acrylic tops back in the metal frame of the caps and glue both pieces. We also recommend dabbing the edges of the tins with a q-tip with glue to seal the lids to prevent the weight from the gravel popping out of the containers. It took one wall terrarium to splash gravel all over the floor for us to figure that out :) Once your tins are dry from spray paint, remove tape and wash tins with water and soap. Close all tins, now with open front lids. Add gravel, misty moss and air plants. If you prefer building a closed terrarium and skipping cutting the lids, you will need activated charcoal, which can be found in the aquarium section at any pet store. Air plants won’t work well in closed containers, so you may want to switch to ferns and small leafy plants.

Antique glass candy containers
Glass candy containers were originally designed as treasure-filled toys or souvenirs; they still attract collectors nearly a century after they were introduced. When asked Jim Olean how he started his collection of glass candy containers, he said in the fall of 1985, I went out into the woods near my house in search of wild mushrooms. Despite my search for mushrooms, I found an old dump. There was a small glass candlestick telephone, a dog, and a Santa without ahead. These items were taken home, washed, and placed on a shelf in our game room. My uncle, who collects many old things, came over to visit me one day. He saw the glass items I showed him. I was told they were made about 30 minutes away, that they held candy, and that they were made of glass. It was a novelty that a toy and candy were all in one!" Since they were found in the dump, all the parts that came with them were gone. If I went to the local antique flea market, then I could find an all-original one, according to my uncle. The next spring, when the flea markets opened, I went to the best one in town. In the same dump, I also discovered a candlestick telephone. But this one was 100% original like the day it was made, some thirty years ago! My $15 purchase went on the shelf with the one I bought from the dump. Even the candy was still intact on the telephone, which was a far cry from the one from the dump. Due to this, I purchased as many as were available. Having made that purchase, I did not realize how far it would go! History of glass candy containers Where and when this industry began is somewhat dubious. There is some proof that glass toy sweets holders were delivered as right on time as the last part of the 1860s. The initially archived model was the 1876 Liberty Bell, delivered by Croft, a confectioner from Philadelphia, PA. Croft created candy on the grounds of the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Fair and sold them in a glass gift Liberty Bell. Many more likely than not been sold, as this 145-year-old holder isn't uncommon and can be found for under $100 today. The focal point of the glass toy sweets holder industry was Jeannette, PA, a humble community outside of Pittsburgh, PA. It became home to many glass organizations as a result of the spotless consuming petroleum gas that was found there in the last part of the 1880s. The sweets holder industry didn't take off until George West, President of Westmoreland Glass, got included. In 1906, his organization began to patent glass toy sweets compartments for creation. These early Westmoreland holders were straightforward in plan and had a metal conclusion. Plans included trunks, bags, tickers, and horns made in milk glass. They were finished with paint and sold as keepsakes, denoting a year or spot. How many different glass candy container designs were produced over time? For around 100 years, about 550 distinctive glass treats compartments were delivered by no less than 13 organizations including vintage glass candy containers. A few compartments are extremely normal, while others are astoundingly uncommon, with just a couple of known models. I've been gathering these for a very long time and have most, yet not all, of them. No gatherer, past or present, has had the option to secure each model. It's simply excessively hard. In the broadest sense, current costs can go from USD 5 to $5,000, with the state of the compartment fundamentally impacting its worth. Costs expanded throughout the long term and topped around 2006. With the approach of web purchasing and selling, and eBay specifically, costs descended. Media Source: AuctionDaily
