Moss Terrariums

I transplanted my indoor plants all day yesterday and made bunch of moss terrariums.
I wanted to make a moss  terrariums for a long time. After many beautiful inspirational photos on Pinterest i wanted to have  my own moss terrariums badly. 
 I tried to find some big and beautiful jars during  last week, but without great results, so i decided to make my terrariums with what i have. I don't want to wait. I cleaned up all the big jars i had and one bottle from cognac.
So here they are .
It was fun to make them, layer by layer. It is easy and interesting!
