home: made [ terrarium ]

One of the most popular accessories for the home over the last six months has to be the terrarium. Bringing some plantlife in to the home in the form of a mini greenhouse. Terrariums come in all shapes and sizes with the basic idea that the plants / cacti sit in a glass bowl or vessel, with the most popular recently being geometric shaped [ look at Oliver Bonas ].

Instead of buying one already done, why not give it a go yourself and plant up your very handmade terrarium. Simply get hold of the glass vessel, this can be anything from a small round bowl to a larger hanging version, a selection of plants, stones, and soil. You can buy kits that give you everything you need if you want to make things easier [ Geo-Fleur have a great starter kit ].

Have fun when creating your terranium, use coloured stones or sand or perhaps add in some fun animal ornaments.

Below are some tutorials to get you started.
