Spring "Carrot" Terrarium And Vintage Bowl Turned Planter
You may already know that I love plants and flowers, but have no green thumb. I struggle with keeping even the hardiest house plants alive. So far my new Spring terrarium and vintage bowl planter are doing great. They both were easy to fill. I found most of my supplies at Walmart and Michaels, except for the plants, they came from Home Depot.
Creeping Jenny Ground Cover
Golden Scotch Moss Ground Cover
Large Glass Jar With Lid
Small Orange Pot
Miniature Orange Pot
Pipe Cleaners Orange and Green
Tiny Chalkboard Sign
Place a 1 inch layer of glass rocks on the bottom of your glass jar, and orange pot. Fill both with potting soil, leaving room for plants. I put my Creeping Jenny in the orange pot, because it's a taller ground cover, and I thought it would make the pot look like a big carrot. The moss I placed around the orange pot. I am keeping it near a bright window, and watering a tiny bit, once a week.
The carrots were easy to make. I simply wrapped an orange pipe cleaner tightly around two small pieces of green pipe cleaner.
I really like the look of the Creeping Jenny ground cover.
Speaking of the Creeping Jenny, it creep-ed right into my vintage bowl. I found the bowl about 5 years ago at a flea market.
What do you think, do you like my "carrot" garden?
Do you have any vintage flea market bowls laying around that would make a great planter?
Well that's some of the many things I have been up to. What about you? Come share at our weekly Anything Goes linky.
