I’ve been obsessed with terrariums lately, and then saw some that were made here. Also, Britt in our neighborhood makes some awesome ones that are sold at Kate Ross Shoes/Kalos Design in North Park. But for Mother’s Day I thought I’d try my hand at putting together some simple ones.
I put some rocks on the bottoms for drainage, mixed some sand with my soil, and topped with nice black sand and some clear rock beads. Here’s a great tip: I bought my potting supplies at Lowe’s, and they had a pallet in the back of the nursery with opened bags. Each one was 50% off – I only spent about $5 for a huge bag of rocks, sand and soil. Some of the plants were from our garden and I purchased a few at the nursery.
The clear containers are from IKEA, Michaels and random ones from around the house.
So, if you are looking for a last minute quick Mother’s Day present try making one. I think I’m going to have to keep one for myself.
