Mossy Landscape Terrariums

Make your own beautiful mossy landscape terrariums. The fun is truly in the making.

Spend some time outside. Ethically harvest some moss and other small plants. Stones, shells and even small pieces of bark can look very nice in your landscape. To start, mound some potting soil or garden soil on a dish or tray of your choosing. Arrange moss to the desired effect. Add embellishments like a stone or an acorn. Cover with a glass cloche.
