Since I’ve fallen in love with gardening, I’ve started making customized containers as gifts. For Mother’s Day, I put together the pieces for little air plant terrariums and shipped them off to Pennsylvania. I wanted something low maintenance, but unique for my mom. I found inexpensive hanging globes at Pottery Barn’s after Christmas sale last year and bought two boxes. I got some neutral colored rocks, though I pondered colored sand, and just added air plants that I picked up at the SF Flower and Garden Show. It was creative, but super easy to put together. Here is a pic my mom sent. They’re sitting on the windowsill but can just as easily hang from the curtain rod.
Edit: after I posted this, I discovered another blog with a similar project, only theirs is an entire chandelier. You should definitely check theirs out. Additionally, the globes are also available at CB2.
