My tiny rustic cottage in a terrarium
Recently, I found a tiny little porcelain cottage at a garage sale and decided it needed a terrarium to call home. Not much is happening outside in the garden this time of year, so working in my garden room has to satisfy my green thumb for the time being.
Making a terrarium is a quick and easy project with magical results. This project took me about an hour, and that includes taking the pictures to share with you!
So, gather up your materials and join me in some inside gardening. here are all the steps to make your very own terrarium.
Materials : a container, pebbles, potting soil, deactivated charcoal, a couple small plants (I used Dwarf Flag and South African Squill), moss, a figurine or miniature to personalize your piece.
Step 1 ~ Put an inch of pebbles in the bottom of your container and sprinkle a few tablespoons of charcoal on top
Step 2 ~ Put in the potting soil, wet it and add the plants
Step 3 ~ top with moss gathered from the woods or yard
Finished ~ a tiny rustic cottage home in a terrarium
