Terrariums are a vibrant, unique way to inject a little
greenery into any home. In Tiny World Terrariums, authors
Katy and Michelle of Brooklyn's celebrated Twig Terrariums offer
step-by-step instructions for building your own, from selecting
glass containers to layering soil and filtration to adding moss,
succulents, and other plants. To give each terrarium a whimsical,
personal touch, Katy and Michelle demonstrate how to use tiny
figurines and toys to create to-scale scenes, such as a couple at
their wedding, a CSI crime scene, and Central Park in springtime.
Photos of gorgeous finished terrariums and detailed instructions
will empower anyonewhether green-thumbed or notto create their
own Lilliputian worlds.
