Book Giveaway: Miniature Gardens1:45 PM
Katie Elzer Peter new book "Miniature Gardens" is a complete guide to miniature gardens with a hefty dose of good gardening practices. Her mission: to bring basics of gardening back to the trend by building mini gardens that mix creativity with longevity.
Here's what Katie has to say about her new book, and her own experiences that inspired it:
“Some of my favorite projects for Miniature Gardens were the terrariums. Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved making terrariums and have had several over the years. And some of my fondest memories were creating these little settings with my mom. You can use almost any type of glass container for a terrarium. From a mason jar to a huge wholesale club-sized pickle jar, a trifle dish, or a hurricane vase, there are lots of options. Clear plastic works, too, if you're crafting with the little ones. And so easy to care for – my terrariums require so little water! There's something enchanting about creating a miniature little world that you can carry around or sit on your bedside table. I think that's why terrariums are just so fun for kids.”Sound fun?
