You can make a terrarium in less than an hour. Making terrariums can be quick, easy and doesn't have to be expensive. To save money, shop discount stores, flea markets or consignment shops, where you can find really cheap yet great looking glass containers, jars or even goldfish bowls. The plants you’ll use are generally small houseplants, which often only cost a couple of bucks each, so the whole project, depending on the size of your jars, can be made for well under $20. Terrariums also make wonderful and impressive gifts, even for people who consider themselves plant-challenged.
