Four DIY Spring Crafts To Make At Home
DIY Terrariums with London Terrariums
Last summer we were lucky enough to have a lesson in the art of terrarium making, from London Terrariums. Rather than using the more simple containers – where you just open the door and place your soil and plant in, we were given the challenge of creating terrariums using vase-like containers with a fairly small hole at the top. Using all sorts of equipment from chopsticks to broken plant pots, we learnt how to carefully assemble our very own, beautiful terrariums, which emulate a whole little ecosystem in a jar.
