Finally a Terrarium

Happy Monday! If you didn't get a chance, please head over to Chic on a Shoestring Decorating to see Courtney's guest post yesterday. Thanks Kate for having us on your blog!

Chic on a Shoestring Decorating

I have wanted to make a terrarium ever since we decided to move into a basement apartment. I knew that we wouldn't get a lot of light and that I don't have a very green thumb. It seemed like the perfect solution to my problems. Here is my Pinspiration.

Grow Little

I went to Michael's armed with my 40% off coupon and started looking. I found the perfect jar for my terrarium, and it even has a lid incase I want to make a closed terrarium later on. 

I added the stones to the bottom of the jar for good drainage. Hopefully I don't overwater, but I am all set if I add a bit too much.

Then I added some potting soil and my plants.

I really love how it looks. I don't have the lid on it because I don't want too much moisture inside. Hopefully I can put in a fern and some succulents. It is very nice to have some greenery in my home. Now for the real test... to see if I can keep these plants alive!

Happy Crafting,
