i just can’t get enough of these pretty glass prism terrariums. they’re perfect for creating little micro climates and can be planted with either moss or succulents (or both). hang them, set them on a desk or place them in front of a window to create an eclectic green space in your home! if you’d like to learn more about how to plant a terrarium, i really enjoyed this how-to video from sprout and know you will, too.

i feel as though this post hardly needs any words, as the photos speak for themselves! this most perfectly woodsy, feminine and detailed jewelry comes to you from woodland belle. the artist, mai mckemy, lives in asheville, nc (our home grounds) and if you knew anything about the city, you wouldn’t be surprised. it’s filled with the most eco-aware, mindful people that honor both the earth and the arts. i love the intricate detail in all of her work, the moss on these twig hair pins and the tiny succulents on this garden necklace.

visit woodland belle’s site to learn more, and shop the collection either on etsy or big cartel.

diy terrariums

diy moss terrarium

yeah for terrariums!!  why do i love them so much?  there’s something about a protected little self sustaining eco system that just makes me happy.   i’m so excited that i finally made some, i’ve been wanting to for months and months- and i think they are so pretty.  they were easy breezy, too- here’s how!

first collect some containers to use as the terrarium.  you could buy them new, but i found these at our local thrift store.  the tall one is a separate top and bottom that i found that thankfully fit together, and the low one came together.  i think it used to be some kind of kitchen gadget? anyways, as long as they are glass and fit together- they’ll work!

then, i spray painted the bottoms black to match each other and filled them with a few rocks to help with drainage.  i just grabbed these right out of our driveway!

next, you’ll need to find some live moss.  i stumbled across this moss during our nature walk, but you can also order it online.

next you’ll need a few little plants to fit inside.  i bought these two succulents ($2.99/ea) from our farmers market.

now, all you have to do it assemble it!  i cut some of the moss to make it fit just right, then wedged the little plants in between the cracks.  i placed a few extra rocks around as well, some to help hold up the plants, but mostly just for looks.

give it a good watering and voila!  you’ll want to keep it out of direct sunlight to prevent it from drying out, and you’ll only need to water it (from the base) about every month or so.  if a plant doesn’t make it- don’t worry, you can just try something else, as they are easy to rework.

i think they are my new favorite pieces in our home!
