Making DIY terrariums is one of those things that kids and people of all ages enjoy making. I often pop in to Terrain in Westport, Connecticut and see the terrarium making workshops. They are quite popular! Earlier this week I had the chance to make terrariums with Brooke of Nesting With Grace and her little girls. The girls are reading the Serafina and the Black Cloak and Serafina and the Twisted Staff. The terrarium project was a culminating activity.
Here’s what you need to make terrariums:
A glass jar with a lid (I think the Anchor Hocking Heritage Hill Jars are perfect and they come in several sizes). The lids are all glass and not air tight so your plants will be very happy.
moss (I collected moss from our stone walls)
A plant mister to mist your terrarium
Tiny (battery operated) strand of lights for a touch of magic
We had perfect weather for making terrariums in the backyard. There was a little cloud cover. As the terrarium making progressed it got darker and darker. Once we brought the terrariums indoors and cleaned up, it began to pour rain. Ella carefully turned out the lights in the terrariums and we moved inside for lemonade and Madeleines.
Thank you Brooke, Ella, Lola and Finn! Come back soon!
