I have always thought terrariums were the coolest things. I've had a bunch of neat containers for a couple of years. But now that I have time, and desire to do things, I've gotten all my equipment out and bought some succulents and have created my first terrariums. It's been a real blessing to have the time and the desire to do things I enjoy. During this time off I am hoping to discover what I enjoy doing again. Come to find out I love plants. Especially succulents.
To create a terrarium you need:
found these succulents at Wal-Mart and Lowes
Take your container and add some stones for drainage and add then the soil.
Then arrange your plants, however you would like.
The finished product.
Since I had more plants and containers. Here's the rest of my terrariums.
This pot we got at Crate and Barrel last summer
succulents in a strawberry pot.
This beautiful Apothecary Jar I found at Jo-Ann Fabrics.
I love this jar. And yes Adam said he thinks our living room is starting to look like a conservatory. That's fine with me :)
I've had this bell jar from Crate and Barrel for a couple of years now, and couldn't wait to put these exotic flowers in it.
The extra succulents went into this beautiful pot.
Also these two beautiful painted succulents got a home in some of my favorite pots.
Then I found this jar at Wal-Mart and this fun little pineapple looking plant so I had to do at least one more.
The other pretty bauble I found was this pretty watering can from Lowes. Functional and lovely to look at.
I can't wait until the shelves are up in the dinning room so I can display all my plants and my copper watering can.
More terrariums to come.
Here's hoping you get to do something today that makes you happy.
