DIY Butterfly Jar

Recently I have seen a lot of beautiful terrariums in the blogosphere and have wanted to make my own.  I don’t want to have to take care of additional plants so I decided to make a butterfly jar instead.  I can set this arrangement on a shelf and not have to worry about whether it is getting enough sunlight and water as it needs neither.

I love the look of bell jars, but not the price so I used a cylindrical vase set atop a candle holder. First, I placed a piece of moss on the candle holder.
