Pine Cone Terrarium

 It is very difficult for me to decorate during this time of year.  You have to decorate for Winter but you don't want it to look like Christmas.  I also want to incorporate Valentines simply because I don't want to have to redecorate in a couple of week.  Recently I was checking in with Folk Lifestyle.  They have a lot of great ideas and inspirations.  They had a DIY post for a pine cone terrarium.  Here is the wonderful thing about creativity.  You can take someones ideas and put your own spin on it.

A couple of weeks ago my sister gave me some pine cones she got on clearance, after Christmas, at Target.  She said she knew I would figure out something to do with them.  When I saw this post I had a moment.

So here is my take on Folk Lifestyle pine cone terrarium project.

This was my original inspiration..

How cute are these pine cones?  I also adore the silver glitter accents on the edges.

Love the price.

So this is my take.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  I added a glass heart to incorporate Valentines.  Also, I learned that there are different mosses.  The one I used was Reindeer Moss.  I love it.  It is really soft and pliable.  I also love this shade of green.

I topped my terrarium with a dome, of course, my favorite.

Have a great week my friends and please share with me any pine cone inspiration you might have.

You knocked it out of the cloche Sheila! Looks amazing - isn't it fun to actually create some of the many many things we pin! Glad you found inspiration on FOLK!
