The Dirt: a zen garden terrarium


I think I almost missed the terrarium train. They seem to be popping up everywhere and I’ve wanted to make one for the longest time. There’s something about each little miniature world that’s so appealing.

When I saw the adorable terrarium that Kate at Tiny Warbler made, I knew I had to have one.


For my terrarium, I used Elfin Thyme (a decorative herb), polished pebbles and a little temple to create a tiny zen garden.












I followed all the tips and guidelines for making a terrarium. First layer pebbles to keep the roots from soaking in the water, followed by moss to keep the dirt from falling into the pebbles and finally add the plant. That’s it.

I’m feeling more serene already.
