Terrarium Craft: Create 50 Magical, Miniature Worlds Cover

 

Staff Pick

If there's one thing I've learned through my wayward attempts at gardening, it's the importance of starting small, and it doesn't get much smaller than this.  In Terrarium Craft, Amy Bryant Aiello and Kate Bryant not only cover the basics of terrarium building (from container, soil, and plant selection to decorative elements and care), but also guide the reader through 50 imaginative and easy-to-follow projects, such as "Rock and Rose," a clever pairing of split-rock plants and river rocks, "Test Tube Babies," which makes artful use of clear glass test tubes to showcase diminutive succulents, and, my personal favorite, "Mr. Carlyle and the Grumpy Bunny," which features an old book, a stern porcelain rabbit, and a carnivorous plant known as the "angry bunny."  Filled with useful information, delightful projects and stunning photography, Terrarium Craft is an absolute treasure.

Publisher Comments:

Easy to make and a wonder to behold, jewel-like terrariums are winning over a new generation of crafters and gardeners. From the simplest of combinations, like a single bromeliad paired with tiny fragments of driftwood in a miniature globe, to incredibly intricate worlds of stones and bones, feathers and ferns, terrariums today marry gardening, fine-art, science, and a touch of modern whimsy, and they are the latest craze in crafting and indoor gardening.

Terrarium Craft is the first step-by-step project book for this new audience. Authors and nursery owners Amy Bryant Aiello and Kate Bryant offer up everything a beginning terrarium crafter needs to get started, from advice about tools and materials, information about plant choices and simple maintenance tips. 50 unique projects offer fantastical inspiration alongside easy-to-follow instructions and ingredients lists. From the nature-inspired combination of blue-tinted echevaria and a milky-white shell to the darkly beautiful pairing of pyrite, black moss, and begonias, there’s a terrarium for every taste and style.

Synopsis:

A terrarium is nothing less than a miniature world — one that you can create yourself. It might be a tiny rainforest, with lush foliage and bright tropical flowers. Or a desert, with strange succulents planted among colorful stones. Or a Victorian fernery. Or a minimalist composition with a single, perfect plant.

Or it might not contain any plants at all. It might be made with crystals, feathers, bones, seashells, bits of wood, porcelain trinkets — anything that catches your fancy and helps create a mood or look. Whatever they contain, terrariums are the ultimate in modern, affordable, easy-care décor.

Terrarium Craft features fifty original designs that you can re-create or use as inspiration for your own design. Each entry comes with clear step-by-step directions on how to assemble and care for your terrarium. Youll also find helpful information about selecting a container, using appropriate materials, choosing the right plants, and maintaining your terrarium. (Hint: Its easy! In fact, many terrariums are self-sustaining, requiring no maintenance whatsoever!)

If youve always wanted to have a bit of nature in your own home, without the worry and labor of a garden, this book will show you exactly how to create your own unique, enchanting world. aste and style.
