The Desert Themed Lightbulb Terrarium
This is a wonderful lightbulb terrarium project that was made and submitted by web visitors ( Niels D.R. and Annelies V.D.K.) My thanks to them for the picture and the tips.
Here is what they have to say about the project: I've recently discovered your terrarium projects on youtube, especially your idea of making one inside a lightbulb so I made one with a desert theme to avoid condens on the glass and here is the result . What I used:
getting the soil inside there was easy with the use of a small tube positioning the plants without getting them covered with sand was the hardest part .
Here is a great idea for a unique terrarium: A terrarium inside a lightbulb! Its an easy project and a real conversation piece. See a larger picture and my tutorial on how to safely hollow out a lightbulb here: The terrarium inside a lightbulb project

Want to Make a bigger desert themed terrarium?
Here is a nice tutorial that I have made so you can make a desert terrarium inside a dish, bowl or planter. I recommend using terra cotta because it goes perfectly with the desert theme Make a desert terrarium This tutorial includes a video.
Or How about a REALLY big one!
I don't have a tutorial for this one but here is a very big glass terrarium with a desert theme. It was made by a web visitor (Badia A.) This just shows that the sky is the limit!
