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.
- Dried moss
- Paper and tape butterflies (see my guest post on A Glimpse Inside Blog for how I made these)
- Paper magnolia and leaves (see my DIY Paper Magnolia post)
- Covered glass container
