Easter Terrarium

Terrariums are a wonderful way to garden indoors and one of the most 

interesting aspects, is that you can make them as elaborate or a simple 

as you like.

They are even carefree enough and durable enough to encourage participation

of all ages.  




As the seasons change so can the elements in your terrarium.

I am beginning to decorate for Easter, and I wanted to include keepsakes

that my Mother and children have given me throughout the years, some of 

them are so tiny that this is just the perfect spot to display them.





Terrariums can be functional or decorative, if you choose to go the 

functional route you will want to seal the edges of your terrarium with 

silicone or invest in a  vinyl liner.  

This way you will be able to add dirt directly to the terrarium and plant the

plants in the terrarium.







For this project I chose decorative and here is how I put it together.



Underneath it all is a terracotta saucer where the succulents are sitting. 

I left them in small pots so that I can water them easily and pretty mess free!

These two succulents are Elephant Bush and Blue Pearl

they are thriving with just one watering in two weeks.





Next up is the moss and well aren't we all pretty much in love with moss?


It brings Spring right in doors and that is what we are all longing for...

Spring!

So I used the leftover sheet moss from my Spring moss wreath to tuck

around the plants and nestle my pretties in.

I also think it is functional and helps maintain the moisture in my plants.







Now really the next part is oodles of fun-start shopping your home, you

know you have treasures all around your home which you might just have 

forgotten you had!






I added a small silver spoon and fork, a mini chalk board, some pebbles,

a couple of chunks of wood from a flower bed and a silver turtle.

Everything and anything works perfectly in a terrarium, no worries here.







Of course an Easter terrarium is not complete


without an Easter Bunny or two and of course some Easter Eggs!

This is a super easy way to bring gardening into your home decor.
