Add a personal touch of whimsy and style to your home or office with delightful bursts of green life

Green in every sense of the word, this book shows how to capture the modern craze of displaying innovative plant combinations in miniature glass-enclosed gardens – and then goes a step further. Instead of bulky pet tanks or expensive store-bought containers, the projects in Terrariums Reimagined give old glass containers a new purpose by recycling them as elegant frames for this living art.

With easy step-by-step instructions, 25 fun and crafty projects, and 30 beautiful color photos guiding the way, you can create colorful displays of ferns and flowers that flourish inside unusual vessels, rustic jars, and charming pots. This book gives you great gardening advice, such as which plants can survive under glass, the most effective way to harvest moss, and how to care for and maintain terrariums. It also includes tips and tricks on how to scavenge the perfect vessels and tools.
