make your own terrarium-- (for under $10)

If you know me, you probably know I have a thing for Terrariums.

I've been thrifting lately and found this glass vase.
($ 1.99 at Village Discount Thrift Store)
Its thick enough at the top for plants to grow.

The most important thing terrariums need is layers of rock and soil.
Rocks at the base help circulate water so it doesn't just sit at the bottom.

Next add your plant! Succulants are the best (desert plants)
Below is a jade plant.
($6.99 Sprout Home)


Other cheap solutions..
Empty Patron (tequila) or Oberweis (milk) bottles make a great home for ivy and vines!
