Making Christmas - Whimsical Terrarium Ornament by Vanilla and Lace

Hello! I'm abi and I run a blog called Vanilla & Lace. I love Christmas (who doesn't??) so I'm extra excited Erin asked me to contribute to this making christmas series. I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season! And that you can find the time to make this whimsical ornament! 

You'll need:
- A clear glass ornament (found at most craft stores)
- Moss
- Small bottle brush tree or plastic deer

I could only find green bottle brush trees so I bleached mine. So easy! Fill a small glass jar with bleach, drop in your trees and let sit for about an hour or until completely white. Place trees on a towel to dry.

When dry, gently stuff the moss through the ornament opening. Use tweezers to move the moss where you want it. Now push your tree through the opening, Be careful though! Some of those glass ornaments are pretty thin and this part can crack them, Again, use the tweezers to place the tree/deer where desired. And there you have it! It's definitely not rocket science but the result is gorgeous! (P.s. it'd make a great gift too!)

Thanks Erin for inviting me to be a part of making christmas!
