Terrarium Ornament

I purchased a bunch of these clear glass ornaments on clearance last Christmas. The possibilities are endless for these ornaments, one idea I had was to create a terrarium.  The round glass encapsulates the plant well and the clear glass just makes it look so sophisticated and modern.  The one warning I do have is that it is a little complicated to get the small rosemary clipping positioned into the hole.  The rosemary may outgrow this glass bowl in a month (or may not even survive), but I still love how it looks.  Rosemary is very easy to propagate, just clip young growth, remove bottom leaves and place into soil.  The clipping should root in a few weeks.  For this terrarium, I propagated rosemary a month earlier and transplanted into this ornament.

This reminds me of Charlie Brown's Christmas tree.  Notice I used a folded origami star to hang off one of the "branches".

Fill ornament with soil, add a little water, and using a paint brush I cleaned the sides of the ornament and compacted the a little before placing the rosemary plant inside.  I don't know if it will survive, but I'll keep you posted.


  1. Terrariums are amazing for those of us who do not have green thumbs. It's no fuss, no mess, and survival rates are close to perfect!

  2. And I totally just Pinned this!
