Halloween Terrarium
I finally made my own little terrarium! I added tiny spooky props because I live and breathe Halloween all year long. It’s simple to create, inexpensive, and adds a lot of character to your living space.

Here’s what you need to make one:

1. Empty glass container
I got mine at the dollar store (bonus points for pumpkin shape!)

2. Small rocks/pebbles to fill the bottom of the container
Pet stores. Mine are left over from my aquarium.

3. Add a layer of charcoal or activated carbon.
I bought a jar from walmart for 3 bucks. This helps maintain the life of the moss.

4. Add a layer of sphagnum moss so the soil won’t travel to the bottom of the container. Purchased this at the dollar store in a bag, it is dried up though.
Wet the moss separately and squeeze to drain the water. Squish the moss almost like a pancake with your hands and cover the entire surface area on top of the pebbles/charcoal.

5. Add a layer of soil.

6. Add your moss! I found mine in my back yard. Moss thrive in damp environments. Check near rocks, trees, pathways, etc. Best to look on a damp day. Just dig and lift with a butter knife or small shovel

6. Decorate your terrarium! This is where you get creative :)
I picked up the gravestones at Michael’s. Part of the Lemax Spookytown collection. The skull was a part of a necklace from the dollar store and the bones were also from the dollar store. I broke off the arms from a skeleton accessory.

Voila! Now you have your own terrarium :)


I’m super upset right now. This is like the coolest thing I’ve ever made like ever and my boyfriend doesn’t like it.

I had to put together the box by hand, and I’ve been growing these beauties for about a month now. I sprinkled gold glitter on the dirt, hand painted some animal bones gold and used some Iris, Moss Agate and Rose Quartz and I think it looks awesome and he just shit all over it and I feel really worthless and heartbroken.


2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 tablespoon dried or 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (this helps give doggies fresh breath)
½ cup nonfat dry (powdered) milk
½ teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup peanut butter
½ cup or more cold water

1. Preheat the oven to 300°F and lightly grease two baking sheets or line them with parchment paper.

2. Mix together flour, oats, parsley, milk powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add eggs and peanut butter and stir until the mixture is combined (it will be crumbly). Slowly drizzle water over the dough, stirring as you go. Add just enough water to let the dough come together.

3. Roll the dough out to about ¼” thickness and use a small (about 1.5-inch) dog bone-shaped cutter to cut out biscuits, transferring to the baking sheets as you go. Collect any scraps and re-roll them, repeating until you’ve used all the dough. Note: If you don’t have a dog bone cutter, you can make round dog “cookies” by dropping small (walnut-sized) balls of dough on the baking sheet and flattening to ¼” thick.

4. Bake the biscuits for about 25 to 40 minutes (“cookies” will take longer), or until they’re golden brown and dry and crispy all the way through. Let the biscuits cool on the pans and transfer to a jar when they’re completely cool. Biscuits will keep for several months in a closed container.
