  • Eucalyptus and dried pine branches
  • Thin thread

Prepare the branches

Cut small twigs of eucalyptus and pine, and make sure they don't extend beyond the opening of the ball

Place your Christmas Terrarium Ornaments

Once the balls are embellished with holiday branches, you can hang them individually on the tree or group them together: make small knots with the thread to create a garland of  christmassy terrarium ornaments, and place them wherever you like!

  • Natural wax candles
  • Sprigs of foliage (eucalyptus, pine, olive or rosemary)

Create the base of your candle

Start by setting aside pretty glass bottles of different sizes:they’ll serve as elegant stands for your candles. Then buy natural wax candles. 

For the green touch, get some sprigs of resistant foliage like eucalyptus, pine, olive or rosemary.

Assemble your candle holder

Fill the bottles with water right up to the base of the bottle neck, and insert a piece of foliage (about four inches long) into the bottle. Slide the candle into the neck of the bottle by pressing lightly until it's safely tight. 

Voilà! You now have your very own and unique Botanical Candles ready for Christmas!
