I love to decorate for Halloween but sometimes I want decorations that aren’t gory or scary and that will match the rest of my decor. If you feel the same way this miniature terrarium project has got you covered. The little painted ghost is festive but the rest of the terrarium is perfect for any time of the year.

Use a fine paint brush to paint a white ghost shape onto one side of the flat rock. Let dry. Paint on eyes and mouth using black paint. Paint small pinecones yellow, or any colour of your choice. Set aside.

Add a layer of dried coffee grounds to the bottom of the small glass vase (soil would work as well). Gently layer in some pebbles over the coffee grounds.
