terrarium {diy}

May 9, 2013


These days, you can find terrariums everywhere…the blogosphere, the home improvement stores, artificial ones in home decor stores…even Wegmans has a whole display of terrariums.  I have to admit, I am sort of in love with them.  I also have to admit, I am not about to pay 30-something dollars for one.  So I made one.  And gave it to my Momma for her (late) birthday present.


 I thought it was appropriate since she loves plants, the southwest (Sedona specifically), and handmade.  Easy-peasy…



This project was so easy and fast I made one for myself.


And since I went a little overboard on the succulents, some other special people will be receiving DIY terrariums soon…I wonder who?

    Did you use a particular kind of soil or just potting soil? Thanks!!

      I used a combination of regular potting soil and a succulent/palm mix. That being said, I have used regular soil and have not had any issues. Just don’t let it get too wet!
