  • Using 18g of floral wire, wrap the stems as close to the bottom of the stems and as close to the top of the stems as possible. After wrapping floral wire around the stem, you may need to remold the head.

  • Use two smaller Billy Buttons for Mickey’s ears. Insert the flower ball head into the soil as the Mickey “face” and 2 billy buttons into the soil as both of Mickey “ears”. You’ll know the shape when you see it!
Epcot Themed Flower Terrarium
  • For the Epcot themed flower terrarium: Add around 1 inch of extra small pebbles to the bottom of your terrarium. (This provides an area for excess water to drain, sit, and evaporate naturally.)
  • Add 2-3 inches of soil to terrarium and level out soil using your hands.
  • Pick one side that will act as the “back” of your terrarium and pile up 1-2 inches of soil in a crescent shape going from more soil in the center to less soil towards either side of the crescent.
  • To prepare your plants for planting, use your hands to gently remove any existing soil from the root of the plant. Start adding your plants to the terrarium in order of size, the tallest being in the center and the shortest being towards either end of the crescent. Be creative and use any succulent that appeal to you. (Tip: For plants with fewer roots, use a chopstick or paintbrush handle to create the hole for the plants to go into).

  • Add a line of river rocks that hugs the edge of the terrarium. Once placed, add extra small pebbles on top of ricer rocks and use a paintbrush to brush the smaller rocks in between the cracks of the river rocks.
  • Cut sheet moss to fit the area between the plants and the rock path you’ve created. Once cut, push sheet moss down using your hands. You may have to tuck it under soil or rocks in parts.
  • Use chartreuse reindeer moss to fill in the area between each plant.

  • Using floral wire, create small bunches of starflowers and place them in between succulents.
  • Place Mickey head in terrarium.
Epcot Themed Flower Terrarium
  • Place Mickey and Minnie in terrarium. (Tip: If Mickey or Minnie won’t stand up by themselves you can wrap a piece of floral wire that is about 1.5″ around their feet and anchor them by sticking the floral wire directly into soil).
  • Water your succulents every 1-2 weeks in the spring and summer and every 1-2 months in the fall and winter.
