Earlier this fall, I attended a terrarium building workshop at Flock Boutique and have been hooked. Every glass bowl or cup I see is now a potential terrarium. I would say it is becoming a problem (I can see 6 terraria from where I sit), but they are just so delighfully charming, I do not think this obsession is a problem at all.
As it is the Christmas season, I thought it only appropriate to decorate the terraria worlds with seasonal accents.
Logically, when my coworkers decided to forgo the classic “cookie exchange” (partly due to raging food allergies) and instead proposed a “ball exchange”, where everyone brings a set of Christmas ornaments to exchange, I decided to make tiny Christmas terraria as my contribution. In advance of the exchange, I prepped gold sparkly animals, make tiny presents, and bought miniature Christmas ornaments.
I thought I was in good shape, so an hour before the party, I sat down to assemble the ornaments, and NOTHING WOULD FIT in the top of the ball!!!
I madly scrambled to find new options (going through some really terrible pinterest-fail options), this is what I came up with:
I made 4 terrarium-style ornaments (I could only use the sparkly foul, because I could trim them small enough so they could fit into the opening).
Hope your season is filled with joy and glitter! xox
May your walls know joy;
May every room hold laughter and every window open to great possibility.
