Easy to make and a wonder to behold, jewel-like terrariums are winning over a new generation of crafters and gardeners. From the simplest of combinations, like a single bromeliad paired with tiny fragments of driftwood in a miniature globe, to incredibly intricate worlds of stones and bones, feathers and ferns, terrariums today marry gardening, fine-art, science, and a touch of modern whimsy, and they are the latest craze in crafting and indoor gardening.
Terrarium Craft is the first step-by-step project book for this new audience. Authors and nursery owners Amy Bryant Aiello and Kate Bryant offer up everything a beginning terrarium crafter needs to get started, from advice about tools and materials, information about plant choices and simple maintenance tips. 50 unique projects offer fantastical inspiration alongside easy-to-follow instructions and ingredients lists. From the nature-inspired combination of blue-tinted echevaria and a milky-white shell to the darkly beautiful pairing of pyrite, black moss, and begonias, there?s a terrarium for every taste and style.
