How fun are terrariums…

A collection of potted plants in a cute glass jar.  Yes, I’ll take it!

My guy + I got our hands dirty the other day making these small terrariums using mason jars.  Come have a look…

I’m love hoarding collecting used glass jars.  Whether from apple sauce, tomato sauce, jelly, etc., glass jars never get thrown out in our house.

1. To start off, I took a bunch of glass mason jars and put about a 1/2″ layer of small rocks on the bottom.

2. We then added a 1″ layer of Miracle Gro potting soil on top of the layer of rocks.

3. We then took our plant, gently broke up the roots, and used a small section of the plant for our glass mason jar.

This is where little hands come in handy.

4. My little guy snuggled the roots into the soil.

5. Add a layer of moss (which we got from our backyard)

6. And finished it off with some water.

The result?  A beautiful and easy-to-make, easy-to-maintain plant project to enjoy in the Summer or all year round.

If you want to keep the Mason Jar Terrarium contained (less water will be needed), then use the cap from the glass jar.  This is from a used tomato sauce jar…

So fun, right?!
