When I was a kid in the ’70s, I spent summers making crafts like sand jars, ShrinkyDinks and pot holders. But terrariums were my favorite. Who doesn’t love a miniature garden in a jar?

It’s been fun seeing these little beauties pop up again. Here are some we’ve been buzzing about:

Craftzine‘s garden in a Mason jar

Design*Sponge’s terrarium from found items, like pickle jars and plants from your walk

The Fern and Mossery’s faves from Sunset magazine

Decor8′s baby garden of succulents

Jeffrey James’ quirky, creative terrariums inspired by woodland gardens, deserts and ferns

Flickr has a place to share your terrarium blog entry. Be sure to post it in the comments below, too!

    You should check out the great little cactus terrariums a lady sells on Etsy.com. I love them! You wear them around your neck in a little jar then when they grow you replant them.
