i love yumi sakugawa’s clever and whimsical illustration, describing how to build your own terrarium.

skinnyskinny in williamsburg is an organic bath and body store, that also carries  everything you need to build a terrarium. this is where i bought all the supplies for my own terrarium seen below. i kept it very simple, with colored stones, an air plant, and a zebra to jazz it up. the reason i love air plants is because they are so low maintenance. you can spray them with water once week. don’t have a spray bottle?…just dunk them in a cup of water for about an hr.

etsy also has ready made terrariums in all shapes, sizes, and prices…and they make great house warming gifts also!
