a christmas terrarium

Instead of meeting for a boring ol’ cup of coffee {not that there’s anything wrong with that!}, my friend and I decided to get together for some Christmas crafting! We’d both been eyeing up all the pretty snow globes on Pinterest and decided to do a Christmas terrarium.

We had absolutely NO idea what we were doing and didn’t see any available instructions, so we pretty much just winged it. I found the jars at save-on-crafts.com and we both scoured our local craft stores for the trees, people, cars, etc.

At first we thought we’d put some “fluff” down. But that didn’t work at all. In the end here’s what we did:

  • filled the bottom of the jar with snowflake-type stuff {available in bags at a craft store}
  • cut a circle out of cardstock to fit the bottom of the jar
  • covered the cardstock with our snowflake-type stuff {can’t think of technical name}
  • tied bakers twine around a tree and hot glued it to the top of our car
  • and then we placed everything inside the jar
  • once we were happy with the placement, we took each item one-by-one and hot glued it to the cardstock inside the jar

We loved how they turned out and truly, they were really easy to make! This summer, I wouldn’t mind trying my hand at a fairy garden!

What do you think? Kinda cute, huh? :)

  2. A fairy garden is on my to do list this year! I planted seeds last week and am sooooo hopeful it will work :) I am really good at killing things though, so we’ll see… haha!
