Method:

  1. Using a paint marker, add a pop of color to the rocks.
  2. Soak your air plant, submerging in water at room temperature for 10-20 minutes, then set aside on paper towel.
  3. Fill your glass bulb with the rocks. Layer moss and top it off with the air plant.
  4. Connect a jump ring to the top of the glass bulb then loop a long piece of paracord and hang where desired.
  5. Create a few arrangements in different colors for a fun mix.

Note: Air plants are very easy to take care of, even if you don't have a natural green thumb. We promise. Simply place in indirect sunlight and spritz every week with a water atomizer.
