I used an old pickle jar and a bubble bowl that I bought from Walmart. I wanted the bubble bowl to look like a vintage fish bowl so I glued a candle holder to the bottom to act as a pedestal.
Since I have a problem keeping indoor plants alive I decided to use just one tiny fern and a variety of mosses, bark, stones, a bird and twigs.
I've always been fascinated by these little self contained worlds. When I was a tween my mom had a terrarium in our living room. Since it was the groovy 60's it was on a white plastic pedestal and the terrarium was in a plastic bubble that sat on top. I loved that thing and used to imagine myself meandering around in that little world.
I like to buy giant jars of pickles from Sams and since I'm always saving jars and cans for crafting, I used one of those pickle jars to make a second terrarium. Again I only used one tiny fern, moss,stones, bark and twigs. I also added a couple of tiny eggs.
I also added moss and eggs to a vintage mason jar to add to the vignette, continuing the nature theme I was going for.
I popped a small plant in milk glass urn under a cloche to help round things out. I don't know how long the poor thing will last!
Just a little winter pick me up! Thanks for stopping by. I'll be joining these parties this week,
