How to: Make a Mini Moss Garden [From Backyard Materials]

I’ve always been a huge fan of miniature gardens and plants – likely stemming back to the first time my 8 year old self saw Mr Miyagi working on his bonsai trees with such elegant diligence. The art itself has a long and storied past and takes lots of practice.   

If you don’t happen to have years to dedicate at the moment, it’s still possible to foster your own private, DIY garden in something as compact (and portable) as an Altoids tin. 

Check out the tutorial here from or check out some of the miniature terrarium sculptures from the Brooklyn-based, Twig Terrariums.
