Make A Terrarium Kit
Use your imagination! Use wine bottles, vases, tiny bottles, bowls, containers with lids- anything! Consider looking at a second-hand store rather than expensive vases or storage containers called terrariums.
Mix two parts potting mix with one part sand to ensure proper drainage.
Pebbles, small rocks or small pieces of glass can all be used for the rock layer in your terrarium.
You can buy activated charcoal at any aquarium supply location.
The spaghnum moss serves as a filter between your soil layers and charcoal, and is optional.

Bamboo skewers to maneuver plants and soil.
Be sure your trinkets or statuettes will fit in the terrarium vessel.
