Toadstool Terrarium

The lack of sunlight makes having plants in our house impossible. So I decided to make myself a little terrarium.... out of felt! I am really thinking the world could be made out of felt!
This is TOTALLY someone else's idea check out Lisa Jordan's blog lil fish studios mine looks like a 5 year old made it compared to the beautiful work she does - I wish I could afford it! If you haven't seen her before you must check out all of her amazing creations!
I just made a simplified copy of hers though I realized later mine is about 4 times the size of hers... which is actually harder (I think) Anyway I have plans for another one that will be my own design...as much as it can be.... lol by no means will it really be mine.
Anyway I LOVE it and it is now on a shelf in my dinning room.... should have taken a picture of that! It's a nice pop of color!
And here is the boy who is growing up so fast! He was actually laughing at me tonight. Got to love it!

Also I am going to be having a giveaway (hopefully friday) so check back for all of the details!!

Your mushroom is so sweet. I've never tried any 3-D felting but I love Odiles work over on flickr.

Her little mushroom terraniums and mushroom gardens in containers are adorable!

I continue to be amazed at the things you do. Even with such great inspiration, I wouldn't be able to do this! Can't wait for the next thing!

That is such a cool idea! I too have some light issues in this house. A terrarium would be just the thing, and the mushrooms... well, they are just too cute. Felt, such an awesomely useful fiber, I wish I could do something like this too! Way to go Jess, yet another great project! ;-)

Oh, so stinking cute! I love it! You did such a great job. I think I like yours better than the original. :)
