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 anyone, whether green-thumbed or not, to create their own Lilliputian worlds.

This book has many cute ideas for creating your own terrarium.


I got this book in preparation for the terrarium building workshop at the library. The directions are very clear and easy to follow. Most of the book is examples of how to personalize your terrarium. Now I'm excited to make one!


a pretty good book
