Terrarium Tuesday: the fool proof terrarium tutorial

you want to make a terrarium
but you're afraid you're going to kill it

well i've got a confession
i {just like many of you} kill plants
what? the plant loving, terrarium building, floral designer girl kills plants?..
you bet i do
want proof

this used to be the cutest little fern
then i killed it
{my bad}

the thing is
plants have minds of their own
sure there are very specific reasons a plant dies
{i've studied every possible scientific cause of their death}
but in my opinion
plants are going to do what they want to do when they want to do it
regardless of how much we tend to them
if they want to die
they're going to
and sometimes it's the opposite
a completely neglected plant will continue living and living and living
and just not quit
{even if you want it to}
minds of their own i tell you
minds of their own

well here is a tutorial for all you self proclaimed
"plant killers"
it's the easiest terrarium you will ever make
and one that you don't have to worry about dying days after you make it
it is absolutely fool proof


glass container
craft moss bought at michaels
small pebbles
twig cut from our mulberry tree

pour as much or as little sand as you want into jar

add your moss

add your pebbles

add your twig{s}

enjoy your kill proof 
and absolutely adorably darling terrarium!

Happy Terrarium Tuesday!
