Hey Everyone! I am DIY craft fan with the best intentions but a short attention span. I have been seeing these amazing terrariums for the holidays on Pinterest lately and have been wanting to make one. Yesterday I decided that that would be the day to make one. I decided to get all bundled up and hit downtown Nanaimo to get everything that I needed and get a coffee to fuel the project.
So first off I went to Perkins, an amazing coffee shop near the top of commercial street to get an americano. They make really really really americanos, and I needed a strong one today (I got a triple). I then headed over to Crafts Canada to get my supplies!
Then I ventured just a couple of doors up the street to Crafts Canada! I was looking for fake snow, fake little trees and something special to put in with the trees. I already had the mason jars. I love shopping locally when it’s an option. I love Nanaimo and want people who are running their businesses to succeed. If there is a local option (and there usually is) I always try and strive for that one. Sometimes the big box stores just have the right prices or you literally can’t get something somewhere else, but I think if everyone does their little bit it will help the local shop owners out a lot.
Then I placed the little trees inside. They were a little more finicky than I thought they would be. It took a little bit more pushing and pulling than I had imagined but I think that it turned out in the end.
Then for the larger mason jar I filled the bottom with snow and clumped three trees together. This made it easier for them to stand up and I think the grouping looks nice. I loved how easy this craft was! It totally adds to the kind of ‘woodsy’ christmas theme that we are doing this year at my house.
