♥ My Cute Terrarium
I've always wanted to make a terrarium, & seeing this super cute greenhouse one in Next made me want to even more. Unfortunately it is £45, which I thought was a bit steep, haha! So now cute greenhouse terrarium for me! Instead, I picked up this fishbowl-esque vase from tkmaxx for a much more reasonable £7.99, & basically just filled it with weeds & moss from the dead plant pots on our balcony.
Most other people buy plants like succulents for theirs, but the weeds were free, so why not! It has a more woodland feel than most I've seen, so I added a few cute mushrooms (they were handmade clay push pins I got in a Craftster Swap), some beach stones I picked up in Wales, & a few paper daisies I'm sure won't last long, but they look pretty! I really want to get a miniature deer or a couple of rabbit figurines for it too, to make it even cuter.
I have no idea if it will survive, but I hope so. My sister & I used to make miniature gardens like this in little wicker trays, but the wicker would always disintegrate & the plants would die, so I am hoping this one lasts a bit longer, haha! It's been a few days now & it's holding up well! In fact so are the paper flowers, which I didn't expect! :P
