DIY Christmas Terrarium

We don’t have a lot of Christmas decorations besides ornaments and stockings. Every year I hope to remedy that, but I never really make the things I hope to. I’m determined to change that this year! I saw this tutorial on Pinterest to make a sea salt terrarium and it seemed like a great place to start.

I used Crayola Model Magic instead of polymer clay. I bought the clay and intended on using it, but when I realized how small my trees were, it just seemed easier to use an air drying clay and paint it.
I put a bit of wire into the bottom of the trees to help them stand, and I used some of the star sequins I had leftover from the underpants badges I made.

I just painted them with different shades of green craft paint and stuck them in a little jar I had. It was a really quick little project and I think it turned out cute. I have another larger container that I might use to make a larger version.
We haven’t set up our tree yet but Christmas decorations are slowly trickling in. Evie has a little tree up in her room and we put some Christmas lights by the fireplace. I’m definitely getting excited for Christmas! What about you, have you started decorating for Christmas?
