Christmas Terrariums Decorating Ideas from Walking on Sunshine Recipes
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.  



Here's what our Christmas table looked like last year.  I love everything about this. When I took the photo I was a little upset because I couldn't get a blog post done in time to share the photo, but time goes quickly and here we are again getting ready  for Christmas.

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!  

Here are a few more beautiful ideas!

Here's what you need to create your own terrariums 

You can find Fake Snow in many craft stores, but I love Amazon.  Really, how easy is it to just order on line and bam, it shows up at your house in a day?

I love this idea.  A jar made into an ornament to hang on the tree.

I have a collection of old blue canning jars.  
This idea was also found from 12th and White. These would look pretty sitting on a windowsill...

  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!
