Easter Basket Terrariums

easterocksIt’s no secret that Target has cute stuff.  Their Easter decor is especially hard to resist.  On a recent tip I scored two baskets full of plastic eggs, not for Easter but for terrariums.

The first thing you need is one of these dome topped Easter baskets from Target.  They come with bunnies or turtles.
