There’s a store in the next town over. It’s earthy. It’s a little funky. And the fragrance of fresh dirt mixed with a hint of patchouli washes over you as you walk in the door. You find yourself bathed in ethereal comfort … it’s therapeutic, actually. A mix of unique plants, vintage decor, and artwork by local artisans make up the list of wares for sale. My mission during my recent visit was to gather enough supplies to make my own hanging globe terrariums so I wouldn’t have to travel 10 miles every time I want to get my fix of earthy goodness at The Mossy Twig.
All I knew was that I wanted hanging globe terrariums and I wanted to make them myself.
A few small succulents, organic dirt, a little bit of sand and decorative crushed glass, and I was set.
I chose the ones with a hook on the bottom so I could hang several together.
The first thing you need to do is add a layer of organic dirt … and yes, it pays to get the right kind of soil.
To make it easier to spread, I used a funnel which made it easier to get into the tight spots.
I purchased a small bag of decorative shells at Joanne Fabrics.
It was easier to make these hanging globe terrariums than I thought it would be.
Tillandsia is an air plant that needs little care … but it does need watering!
I was sad to find out these precious creations only bloom once in their lifetime.

You could use any vessel you might have in your home.
If you need supplies, you can order them at The Mossy Twig’s online store.
