My brain has seized upon another idea for an easy project to keep me occupied this winter: making a terrarium. It’s a simple enough thing to make and depending on what your soil mixture is, you can use a variety of plants. It’s not something that has to be large. I’ve seen some pictures of small ones with just moss. Terrariums are also super-easy to care for, requiring watering only ever couple of weeks. I like the idea of creating a mini environment in a bowl or jar of some sort. It should be fairly simple to find something suitable to use for the container. I’m planning an Ikea trip sometime in the next few weeks and imagine they have something that would work beautifully. Maybe I’ll even find some succulents to plant in the terrarium. This is the type of thing that would also work really well as a gift, I’d think. It can always be personalized with tiny objects.
