Mason Jar Terrarium

Mason Jar Terrarium (6)

Here’s a beautiful project if you want to save any treasured finds from your summer walks!

Knowing that I wanted to put a terrarium together, we first purchased dry moss at a craft store, because I didn’t want to rip any real moss from nature. This element turned out to be the biggest hit of the craft.

Travis fell in love with the way it felt – how fluffy it was, the way he could pull strands of it apart, etc. So before we began the terrarium, we played with it for a while in a large bin. Then it was time to add the moss to a clear glass jar.

Next we were off to find other treasures! We returned to add rocks and a few leaves to our terrarium.

A little sleeping squirrel added a whimsical touch.

You could keep your terrarium on display for quite some time. However, ours lasted barely a day before Travis wanted to play with the elements inside again. Back to the bin we go!
