Bringing Nature Into Your Home: Week 3

Terrariums 

It's that time of year when they days are getting longer and warmer and I start getting excited about my garden. Since it's still too early for us to start planting outdoors, I thought it would be nice to plant a garden indoors. Terrariums are beautiful and simple to make. We stopped by the thrift store to pick up a variety of glass jars and found everything else at our local garden centre.  Each terrarium cost less than $8 to make. 

Here's what you'll need:
  1. A glass container (with or without a lid)
  2. Cover the bottom with about an inch of small stones
  3. Add a thin layer of activated charcoal
  4. Add thin layer of soil 
  5. Add your plants
  6. Add other decorative items
