Simple Valentine’s Day Decor: Faux Succulent Terrarium

Terrariums were huge in 2016, but I never got around to making one of my own.  I know, what the heck was I doing?  Well, luckily it’s not too late to play the game, and I found that making one of these is the EASIEST projects you’ll ever tackle!  Since I don’t have a green thumb I chose to go the faux succulent route, but I don’t think that you’d ever know that it wasn’t real unless I told you, which I did, so now you know.  Haha!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own: (Affiliate links used.)

You can also find the supplies needed at your local craft stores, such as Michael’s and Hobby Lobby.

Here’s how to make it:

  • Pour your sand into the bottom of the container. (Be cautious of the dust that is stirred up from the sand while pouring.)
  • Pour your rocks onto the sand in the container.
  • Trim your succulent stem, and place it into the container. (I centered mine since I chose to work with one big succulent, but you could use more than one smaller succulent and place them as you like.)

Tip: Wipe your glass with glass cleaner once you are done.  The sand dust will leave a residue on the glass if you don’t. 

Here it is styled on my living room coffee table.  Super cute!
