Jam-jar gnome terrarium by Yuliya  from Yufrukt

Nature crafts are one of my favourites as touching bugs, smelling moss and collecting sticks is essential for ones childhood. Jam jar terrarium craft is lots of fun for both making and collecting materials for, so get ready for a lovely walk to a nearby park/forest/beach.

Step 2:
Carve the end of the thick stick with a box cutter in a cone shape (pointy end will be gnome's hat) and make sure you carve off enough bark to be able to paint the gnome's face and beard.
