I told you in my Bring A Little Outside In article that I wanted to do a terrarium in a canning jar. Well, here it is! This one is a moss terrarium. That’s the only living plant I used. I am lucky enough to have some moss growing in my backyard, so I dug up enough to put in the jar.
This is a Smooth Ball Jar from the craft store. It doesn’t have the usual writing on the outside so you can clearly see what’s inside. I made it the same way I made the other terrariums (see the article) – charcoal, stones, potting soil, moss, decorations. In this case, I used 3 stones that matched the stones in the bottom and a plastic rabbit. I put a thick layer of stones in the bottom because I wanted them to show. Break up the moss into chunks to give it a more realistic outdoor look. If too much condensation builds up in the jar, remove the cap. I screwed the ring on, but left the seal off, so it looks like a jar, but gets some air to keep it from fogging up.
What kind of container can I find next?
