Winter Wonderland Christmas Terrariums

The Holidays are here!
I am so excited for all the festivities.  
I recently shared these Holiday Terrariums on 

Our family loves to make terrariums 
and this we year decided to make a Winter Wonderland...
(see here and here for other holidays)

Simple, pretty and festive.
They are like a little snapshot of life...

This one will be in our kitchen, so for the Christmas Tree, 
I purchased a small rosemary plant.
It was not in the ideal "Christmas Tree Shape". 
I used green craft wire to gather the plant in at the bottom and gave it a good trim...

In our large glass fish bowl,
I lined the bottom with rocks for drainage, topped with potting soil and inserted the tree.
A sudden storm of translucent decorative "filler"
(available at Michael's in the floral section, white, clear or glittered beads would work well too)
gave a our terrarium a beautiful fresh layer of snow.

Amazingly, a family of deer appeared,
 along with giant pearl snowflakes...

and a sled full of gifts,

had the fawns excited for Christmas

We can be a little like the Griswalds when it comes to Christmas Lights,
I couldn't resist adding a little flash for evening viewings.
(a Christmas Light necklace that I got at the hardware store, did just the trick)

 May your Christmas be Merry and Bright!

I remove the lights and sled when I gently mist the terrarium for watering every few days.
After the holidays I will replant the rosemary out in the garden.

Check out all the fabulous Christmas Ideas!
