For Christmas last year I made a few hand-made presents to go with my gifts. I had the idea in my mind for a while to make terrariums and purchased some figures a while ago but it wasn’t until a few days before xmas when I finished making them all.
I was originally going to use real succulents but when I was in a store looking for some deco stones I turned around and I saw aquarium plants! (artificial) and I thought that would work better considering some of the terrariums would contain paper and resin (not to mention it won’t somehow die out 😛 )
The first one I made was the one for my dad with baby Groot. This one is still my favourite b/c it was the first I made.
I made another Groot for my younger sister, and for my older sister I made The Little Mermaid – the scene where Ariel comes up on the rocks when she’s singing and the waves come up behind her. Well, that was the scene I had in mind. For her boyfriend I made a Minion jar which is rather quirky. And for mum I decided to make and origami butterfly in the jar. I really like this one and might make more in similar style to sell at my market stall.
In all I’m really happy with these delightful presents, and it goes to show that nothing can beat a hand-made present in terms of uniqueness and pure amazement.
