This is a lamp that has a terrarium inside of it! I got the lamp base and the shade at Ikea. The lamp base is glued shut when you get it, however, I discovered that by heating the the top with a hairdryer, it will come off. I got my plants at Cactus and Tropicals, which has a wide variety of small plants for terrariums, but at a low price. To get the plants in the small opening, you need to use two sticks and use them like salad tongs, or in my case, you can use giant tweezers. I never thought the giant tweezers would come in handy when my grandma gave them to me, but I ended up using them for this project.
