My Handmade Christmas Starts Now

This past summer a local florist was having a warehouse sale and I acquired 20+ glass containers of all shapes and sizes for a serious steal. When I purchased them I had no idea they would be turning into my holiday gifts for family and friends.

When I stumbled upon the sale, I had no intention of buying a thing. I walked out with all sorts of treasures all priced under the $5 mark. It was criminal. Seriously.

I took them all home and there they sat. Inexpensive glassware is only awesome if you can actually do something with it. After staring at them for the last month or so, I think I've finally decided what to do with them. Terrariums!

Family members, please avert your eyes (or call dibs), but I've decided to make succulent terrariums with my findings. Have you started plotting your handmade holiday items? The season will be upon us before you know it!
