Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, art, music, design, decor, and entertainment. Enjoy!

Terrarium Building 101 - How To Do It Right & On The Cheap

I recently blogged about my new plant table, but haven't yet talked about my lovely little plant babies. I potted them with my mom over Mother's Day weekend, and they've been doing quite well, actually. I'm honestly shocked that they've managed to stay alive against all odds (I really have no skill when it comes to horticulture). But I was so intrigued by the idea of filling my home with terrariums that I was just itching to try it out for myself. So far, so good (except for a two-week-long outbreak of fungus gnats that were breeding in the overly-moist soil (see below)). I seem to have it down to a science now, and I love waking up to see these beauties every morning! I've had a lot of people asking about the terrariums and how I built them, so I thought I'd share. This is a great solo activity and a wonderful way to catch up on some peace and quiet time, but it's also really fun to do with friends or even with your kids. Below are the simple steps that I used to build my terrariums.

And, there you go! Something lovely to gaze at, chat with, and love on every day. Or, at least, that's what I do.
