Happy Friday everyone! I hope your week has been fabulous, and for those in the US, Happy 4th of July weekend! Today, I am over at Pretty Providence sharing the tutorial for this Candy Jar DIY Terrarium.
For those who may have been reading along when I wrote about my adventures in botany, I have a terribly black thumb. I have the hardest time keeping indoor plants alive ( although I seem to do better with my garden in the backyard). This prompted my crochet succulents pattern— succulents that can’t die! But even though my track record isn’t great, I decided to give live indoor plants one more go. This time I am super determined to keep them alive. This terrarium is so pretty and fresh, and it only takes a few minutes to put together.
When I was a child, my grandma had a large terrarium on her living room bookshelf. It was created with a 10 gallon fish tank, and I loved looking at it as a small child. She had small figures and animals placed in different places, and even though I knew exactly where each one was, I always loved looking in the terrarium and “finding” them when we came for a visit.
So when I was making mine, I knew it was non-negoitable to have a couple lizards and frogs in my little terrariums. I hope my kids will love finding the animals as much as I did when I was a kid. Because I am determined to keep these terrariums alive long enough for them to have these same memories!
So grab a couple candy jars and get going!
