Hi everybody
Some days ago I realized how many glass jars I had at home. I wanted to do something nice with them but I realized that after doing candle holders, jar to put my materials, to save spices etc etc, I still had at least 5. So I decided to make some lovely eco terrariums.

Why eco terrariums?
Because they do not need any living natural material from the forest (fresh moss and lichen extraction cause bad damage in some ecosystems).
Because It is better to give a new chance to things you probably throw away daily.
Because they look colorful and nice Cheesy

The materials I used was felt in different colors, thread, and wool to make the grass and the hair of the girl that lays in the grass.
I did not use any glue.

Ok I hope you like it.

Hello everybody and thanks a lot for the replies. I think is a nice way to recycle and also is not dangerous, so children can make them as well.
Again thanks a lot!
