A daily dose of creative suspense.

Irish Terrarium

I made a teeny flock of porcelain sheep and an Irish cottage just like the one we stayed in when we visited Ireland.

Steps to make your own:

1.Put pebbles in the bottom of a round clear glass bowl, but any glass container would work. One with a lid is best. I just used a small round plate to cover the top. It keeps all the moisture in so you hardly ever have to water it. I like that because I tend to forget to water plants and they die.

2. Put some soil on top of the pebbles.

3. add the SMALL plants. Well, unless you have a huge container. I dug up some moss so it would look like a grassy lawn for the sheep.

4 add the little characters to your scene.

5. Give it spritz of water. Don’t put it in direct sunlight or it could get too hot and cook your plants and sheep!

  1. Are the sheep made from porcelain as well?
