DIY Hanging Garden

 I have had these really beautiful mercury glass bottles that are meant for hanging candles, but once the votive was inside and lit, you could barely see the inner glow. I really love the idea of a hanging herb garden (see others here) so I finally created my own!

I found two easy grow herbs from which I will be making tea (will post this at a later date) and had to cut a large amount of the root ball so that I could easily fit it inside the bottles opening. Note: If you are dealing with a sensitive herb, you can use mason jars so that the opening is way more forgiving.

With the bottle opening being at the top, rain water will do its job and perfectly moisten the plant. I can't wait to make delicious things with my new herbs!
