{DIY Terrariums}

I've always wanted to make my own terrarium and when Mother's Day came around, I was looking for a different idea other than the typical flowers. Perfect opportunity to try is out! It's a fun way to add a little bitty bit of nature indoors. It was really simple, easy and quick to put together.

Here's what you need to make your own:

I simply added a small amount of pebbles to create a base. Then I removed the two plants and shook off some of the soil. I secured them by adding more pebbles and laying down some moss. Pretty simple! Neither of these two little plants require a whole lot of water to stay alive. Perfect!

Since I didn't use the little bitty birdie and, I had left over material, I thought I'd make two mini terrariums for myself. I've had these three adorable glass jars, (picked up thrifting a while ago for $1.49 each) and had wanted to do something with them.
