I made this terrarium for John and my niece for Christmas. I got the idea from Janet Luke’s Embrace your space.
What you’ll need to make your terrarium
A large jar with a lid (I used a large olive jar)
Some good quality potting mix
Some small rocks/ stones
Some paint (I used etching primer)
An animal for on top (I used a ceramic chicken but you could use a plastic one and paint it)
Glue (I used araldite glue)
I added a thick layer of stones then added another layer of dirt. Pat the dirt down.
I put in the cactus plants then put some stones around the cactus plants.
I painted the lid with two coats of etching primer. Once dry I glued the chicken on top of the lid.
Water the plants only a little then put the lid tightly on the jar.
About once every two to three weeks take off the lid and water the plants then put the lid back on.
Put on a sunny window sill and enjoy.
