Halloween Air Plant Terrarium

Last month I posted a tutorial on how to make Air Plant Terrariums. When I was making these terrariums for around the house, I knew I wanted to make a Halloween themed terrarium to set out with my Halloween decor.  I followed the same method that I used in my Air Plant Tutorial, and just added some little Halloween decorations.

I found a larger round glass bowl that was just large enough to the little tombstone that I have had for years. You can find glass bowls like this in most craft or floral departments, and I found this mini tombstone years ago at a craft store, and usually see similar ones in the craft stores' Halloween section.

I filled the base with the same pebbles I used before, and sunk the tombstone into the pebbles. I added two little air plants, and used some bright green moss, a mini pine cone that I pulled off of a fall floral pick, I also pulled off a mini orange pumpkin from the same floral pick, you fin find autumn floral picks in the floral department of most craft stores. Just arrange the little details the way you want.

I also found a little bag of miniature skulls, they are about the size of a marble, I thought they would be perfect for this terrarium, I tucked one next to the tombstone and another in the front peaking out. They are so similar to the pebbles they fit right in, and give this terrarium a spooky touch.

I set the terrarium out next to some of my other Halloween decor, another mini tombstone, and my little Ghost Potbelly figure. This was a fun project, you could be so creative with all of the different Halloween minis that are available in the craft stores. :)

I am having so much fun with these terrariums, I am already thinking of what minis I have to make one for Christmas when it is time to pack away my Halloween decor! :)
