Winters in Jersey are pretty grey everyday. I was itching for some plant life. Hence, why I created these super easy Mason Jar Terrariums. A great way to spruce up my desk and add some color.

For this project you will need: Large Mason Jar, faux fern, faux succulent, sand, and river rocks (all of which can be purchased at your local craft store. I goto Michael's)

Add a layer of sand first, add a layer of rocks, then cut your fern and succulent plants and add to the jar. A maintence free plant to add to your office.

    I don't have a question, I have Mason Jars in our Apartment, with Glass Gems and Sea Shells I bought at the 99 cent store. I Love The Beach, and since we live in the high desert in CA I can't get to the beach, as often as I like.
