I go on pinterest an awful lot but don’t actually follow through with making too many of the crafty things I pin. Today was terrarium day which in all honesty I’m not even sure I saw on pinterest but it seems like something that belongs there. First I had to buy all my supplies:
Craft Store: glass container. tube of plastic dinosaurs, paints (don’t forget to get the app for your local craft store and use the coupon!)
Pet store: rocks (aquarium gravel), moss (the reptile section)
Home store: soil and plants.
Here is the dumped out tube of dinosaurs.
While they were drying I made my terrarium. Gravel goes in the bottom for drainage, then some moss for adsorption. I should have put in some charcoal but I couldn’t find any. I wasn’t really pleased with the plant selection, I was hoping for some smaller specimens but at this time of the year I couldn’t be too picky unless I went to a greenhouse. There was a nice little bonsai but it was $25 so I cheaped out and got the $2.49 tropical specials. In went the plants, topped the base with moss, sprayed it down a bit, added dinos and TADA!!
