I could do this one while the little one is napping! :D I have a large brandy snifter and some other large glass containers that I've been thinking of doing something cool with. My Halloween totes are spread out in four different places so need to find them and see where my little skeletons are.

Ok, I'm going to try and put together a little terrarium today. It won't be anything fancy ,I'm just going to throw together some items I already have on hand. This thread looks so lonely I feel like it needs a little halloween terrarium love,

Well, this is terrible. It's what happens when you decide you aren't going to spend any money and all and use only things you already have. I was going to go buy plants, only 2 and have one short and one tall. well then I decided I didn't want to spend any money and just use the baby tears I already had for my fairy garden. I also just used an old gold fish bowl I have had for years. I would prefer a container with a lid but again....using what I had. I couldn't keep the glare off the glass this time of day, may retake pics at night. probably not though because it isn't good enough to care lol There are actual live plants in there you just can't see them through the glare and the decorations. maybe mine is more of a halloween diorama than a terrarium:eek: hallowterra1.jpg hallowterra2.jpg hallowterra3.jpg

I think it's very cute, disembodiedvoice! The difference between a Halloween terrarium and a diorama would be splitting hairs. You have some live stuff, and it's under glass, so IMO that qualifies as a terrarium.

thanks guys, I guess it is terrible to me because it didn't work out quite like I had it envisioned in my head. I'm sure you know how that is. I love my little mice , they came in a set of three. I was on this big fairy garden kick this year and bought all these little accessories for different fairy garden scenes.
I can't wait to start seeing some other terrarium pics, I wanted to get things rollin'
