Targaryen Terrarium


Here is the terrarium I made for my boy for Valentine's day.  I call it...the Targaryen Terrarium, because nobody has dragon swag like that house.
I started with this...charming... premade arrangement:
I really loved the forked twigs with the air plant curling around the wood.  I especially wanted to make use of the twigs for flying dragon purposes.  These are the dragons before their mystical magical sparkle-ifying. 

Add the glitter nail polish and you get:

The premade came with this foamy flower thing, it reminded me of dragon scales.
Naturally I had to put nail polish on everything.  This little pod seed cone thing reminded me of an armoured shell.  I fit a small Hawaiian air plant inside like some sort of Metal Slug creature.
This is the habitat without dragons.
Fire and Blood.

Hey internet,

I recently got addicted to making terrariums.  I have been craving some natural greenery in my life, and had  a vision for a unicorn wonderland.  Lo an behold, Unicornicopia!

It started out as a $19.99 premade arrangement from Garden Works.

I bought a pack of tiny mythical creatures (unicorns and dragons, duh!) from Michaels and made a few adjustments by ways of gold and iridescent nail polish. Photos do the sparkles no justice, NO JUSTICE, I say!
I also embellished the twigs with dew drops...aka tiny crystals.
A day or two after putting it all together, I realized it was missing one thing...a crystal point of course!
When in doubt, always add a crystal point.

Love, light, and unicorns.
Good bye paycheques.
