Doctor Who Terrarium

One of my favorite things about being geeky is adding little touches of fandom around my house. Nothing huge, just a touch here to make me smile when I walk passed it. This terrarium is one of my favorite things in my whole house. It was super easy to bring together and if you were trying to be super frugal you could use a lot of things you have on hand or laying about your yard.
You will need:

  • a large jar with or without lid
  • moss
  • river rocks
  • dirt (if you are using real succulents) 
  • succulents, real or fake
  • Tardis Pen 

Add a layer of rocks at the bottom of your jar, then add your dirt if you are going to be using real plants. Add your plants and then place the moss around the edges of the plants. I used fake plants because I am terrible at remembering to water house plants and I didn't want to have to replace them every week,

To add the Tardis pen, you will either need to break the Tardis off the top of the pen, or make sure you have a jar that is deep enough that you can stick the pen into the rocks and have it sit where it is supposed to in the jar. I did the later, because who knows if you are going to want to use the pen as a pen later.

I love this little hint of geek in my living room, it is subtle but lots of fun!

Do you have any geeky decor?
