Hi there! It’s Kathy from Up to Date Interiors again for our monthly get together. I hope April is treating you well. I have a fun DIY project to share with you today that I’ve been wanting to do forever. Last February I bought this really pretty fish tank made by a local glass artist here in Okinawa, Japan. He melts and shapes glass right over pieces of wood. Since we have a cat and two children, I didn’t think that fish would be the most practical thing to live in it so I turned it into a terrarium.
It’s it neat? After doing a little research, I did my best to find supplies for a closed terrarium at our local hardware store. The succulents were easy to spot, but it took me forever to find moss in Japanese. Turns out, it’s still moss (pronounced mosu).
Here’s what you need from bottom to top:
Decorative rocks or topping
I placed it in the foyer where there’s lots of sunlight. It will be a pleasant way to greet guests and the cat won’t eat it. I think.
I really enjoy adding local plant life and beach finds to my vignettes. It’s beautiful and so far has been easy to care for. I wish you all a pleasant Spring and look forward to the next time we hang out together. In the meantime, you can find my latest One Room Challenge update HERE and a Spring DIY HERE.
