doin-it-myself. terrariums!

i wanted to make a terrarium for a long time. i kept buying glassware from goodwill... it was becoming almost compulsory/an obsession, with nothing to show for it. so, one day, i finally did it. i made a terrarium. like most of my d-i-y projects, the quality and finish left something to be desired. but, it's actually quite easy so i'm game to keep trying until i get it right. 

blank slates.

add rocks.

add peat moss.

add soil and plants. (this is where it gets a bit messy)

my plant choices were poor, so i only made one. but on the upside, the plants in this terrarium are still alive

took the terrarium for a stroll...

these terrariums are  cuter than mine. something to inspire future terrariums....
