Expert terrarium makers, apparently. Emphasis on the makers. The survival, however, is not our specialty – that is, when said terrariums are placed in our incapable hands. So it’s a good thing that Scott and I whipped up two terrariums to give as a holiday gifts, one of which currently lives with my mom-in-law in Cincinnati and the other on my grandmother’s console table.
While we may not have the necessary green thumbs to keep ‘em up ourselves (although, our third attempt is at least alive, mostly, and surely you can do better than us!), we do have fun making them. And as a result, I discovered a new found love for Hobby Lobby, the mecca of all that is good and right in this world. (We don’t have them in the city, but a recent whirlwind trip to the ‘burbs introduced us, and we’ve been making smoochy faces ever since.) The vessels, rocks and preserved moss were found at the HB, and the plants, elephant and bison were picked up from Sprout, home of our favorite horticulturists.
Did you give any handmade creations this holiday season?
