Terrariums

Bible study has been moved to tomorrow so I am posting today!  Mom and I made some terrariums this past weekend. They turned out really fabulous! I was glad that she was here because I was worried that I was going to have to purchase a ton of plants to get a good variety; however, we were able to split the costs of the plants.  I suggest sharing this project with a friend like Mom and I did.  Under The Table and Dreaming has the best tutorial for this project.  I didn't use all succulents (like Stephanie does) in our terrariums because my Mom has a really good "green" thumb and knew what other plants would survive well.  Also, my plants are a little taller than the glass container.  I didn't want to spring for the really big glass container cause they are kinda pricey and since I am not good with plants this thing might die anyway! LOL  We were lucky enough to get the rocks and some moss at our local dollar store!!  Yay for dollar stores!  Can't wait for the plants to get a little more hearty and filling in the empy spaces.
