Tabletop Terrarium Revamped

All the Christmas is put away and I'm looking at surfaces with a new eye.  I shopped my house (storage area) and brought out my terrarium from last year that had gone to the wayside.

My flying pig was a gift from my sister Jen earlier last year.  He's been sitting on the floor but after I set him on the table to clean the floor and decided I'd keep him up there instead! 
I don't know why but I get big kick out of "flying pigs" I think they are cute and I like the optimism of "If a pig can fly- anything is possible!"


This was a snap shot last February.  See the jar next to it?  Well I borrowed it's top for this new version of my terrarium.

 I set the top in there and tucked the moss around and added some stones for texture.  The flower pot on the left was tipped on it's side and a fern was popped inside of it.

 It's a faux terrarium because there is no glass so it wouldn't really do the job.  I'll give this a try for a while until I get another idea for it!
I'll have to catch a picture with the sun on it- it sure does change how things look!
I guess what I was going for was a bit more organic but not quite down on the farm!

  1. Liz,
    Love your terrarium!
    The tipped jar is an adorable idea, dear friend!!!
    What could be cuter than a bird trying to find or make a nest? Perhaps a "flying pig"??? He, too is just cute, cute, cute!!! Love the clever ideas after the Christmas has been packed away! Thanks for inspiring me today!!!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  6. This is really creative, Liz! Using the lid in there....what in the world made you think of that? That's a really cool thing! That's fun, too, to put the little piggie on the table...he was cold on the floor! :-)

  18. Hi Liz, you know that I love your terrarium! I have one almost identical. Mine does have glass. I usually use it for Valentines, but haven't brought it up from down in the basement. Guess I'll wait for Spring.
    Hugs,
