While at DIG Gardens, we picked up a few pieces of moss, so that I could complete a moss terrarium that I had thought to create months ago. Back when I made this little beauty, I know that I wanted to create something pretty with the other glass vases I had left.
First, I dropped some river rocks in the vase, to create space for drainage. You'll notice that I completed this project inside of a cardboard box, so as not to get our brand new patio table dirty. I'm nothing if not super tidy! Ehem . . .
Then, I placed soil in the vase.
Next, I nestled my moss into it's new home.
Then, I decided it would look nice to have a few small succulents poking through. So, I snagged a few succulents from our yard and plopped them in as well.
Next, I added a few river rocks to create additional texture and visual interest.
I gave my moss a mist of water and it was good to go!
Now, my little moss terrarium sits happily by our kitchen window.
What kind of projects have you created lately? Have you ever done a project with moss? I was drawn to it because of how easy it is to keep alive. Even my black thumb will have a hard time killing it.
