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.)
- Sand (I chose white and pink which is appropriate for Valentine’s Day, but choose whatever color you like.)
- Faux Succulent
- Glass Container
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!
