I usually do terrariums in the winter, but as I was pulling apart my pansies, I thought .....hmmmm...wouldn't these look cool under glass? I have about a gazillion mason jars for canning and freezing and just general storage, so I figured I would make a mason jar terrarium. I made the smaller one first and then thought it would be even cooler in a larger jar. I also wanted to make it super simple so skipped the usual terrarium steps.
If you put some raffia or a ribbon around the lid, I think they would make great teacher gifts.
