Top the moss with an air plant such as this T. velutina and a dried flower such as this billy ball, for a pop of color.

For an open mini air plant terrarium, wind invisible thread or fishing line, around the egg and air plant to secure the air plant in place. Tie a knot to secure thread. I’ve used yarn to make it easier to see. The advantage of this terrarium, is that is allows for air flow around the air plant. Pictured above is T. harrisii. For optimum care, cut the thread to remove the air plant to soak in water once a week. After the air plant dries, place the air plant back in the egg and using the thread, tie back in place.

Another option is an enclosed terrarium. After filling the egg, snap the two halves of the egg together. Thread raffia through the top and hang. To water the air plant, open the egg and soak the air plant in water for a few hours. Let the plant dry and return to the egg.

Happy Easter!

Wishing you a very happy Easter filled with the light and hope of our Savior!
