Terrarium

Look what I made! After all this talk of terrariums on Etsy (and some on Twitter too), not to mentions my mother's terrarium I was finally convinced to make one myself. When I was younger I put some moss in a pot and watered it everyday. It didn't last long, and then bugs started living in it. I think this attempt at tiny-plant-love will be much more successful... I hope. I bought the bottle for $3 from the op-shop, and gathered everything else from my mother and what was already around my place.
If it's still alive later on I'll update it's status!

  4. Oooh this looks really awesome. If it's not too hard to take care of, I think it would look great for the dorm room!

  5. Ohh I've been wanting to make one of these for ages!!! Only I've had the hardest time finding a good jar with a cork lid to build it in... I really want to make one with a tiny animal or fairy creature inside it :D

  8. I made a terrarium last year and it lasted for a few months until I decided to open the top and water it. I must have ruined the tiny environment inside because soon after it got all moldy and died. I haven't made another one since but now I'm inspired to try again. Also, I love your raw gems and teeth mold on your window sill. Great collection.
    XOXO

  9. I love it! Pretty sure if I tried to make one of these my cats would somehow find a way to eat the contents so I'll just fawn over yours.
