Fresh City Life My Branch is Green!

Fresh City Life My Branch taught me how to make a terrarium!

Last week I attended a Fresh City Life My Branch class at Ross-Cherry Creek, and learned how to make a terrarium! Terrariums are in the midst of a huge comeback, and these tiny eco-systems are popping up everywhere. We learned about what ingredients make a successful terrarium, and then designed our own to take home. It was so fun and easy, you can make a terrarium in almost any container.

On Thursday, Craftinatrix Trish Tilly turns a few materials and supplies into gorgeous, modern Pom Pom Flowers. We've saved a seat for Elvis and we're pretty sure he won't make it, so sign up and join Trish for this fun DIY.
