Christmas Terraiums

Sometimes the easiest decorating projects come from things you already have around the house. These terrariums are an easy way to bring Christmas into your house without spending a lot of money...

12 Christmas Terrarium Decorating Ideas / Walking on Sunshine Recipes

Most of the time you can purchase the trees and bags of snow at The Dollar Tree or any other craft store.   I made a few terrariums last year using old canning jars and epsom salt because I couldn't find any fake snow as it was after Christmas.  Epsom salt works great!  Then just look around your house for different sized glasses, jars or old candle holders and get creative!

  3. These are all such cute versions! I made some last year for my tree out of baby food jars, tiny trees and teeny-tiny little deer! I love them and they are hanging on my tree again this year!
