DIY: Terrarium

I am personally a fan of terrariums for the following reasons:

– It’s a great way to add a cute piece to your apartment with pops of color

– Succulents are hard to kill

– Terrariums typically have a lid, which means my cat won’t eat the plants

I found aย couple of really great posts online that show all the steps you can take to make a fun and efficient terrarium, see my attempt below.

DIY Terrarium - Supplies

Here is what I used as my supplies:

– Cactus, Palm Citrus Potting Mix (Lowe’s)

– Aquarium Gravel (Petco)

– Activated carbon to absorb moisture within the terrarium (Petco)

– Moss (Michaels craft store)

– Succulents (Lowes)

– Cool jar (my boyfriend knew about my terrarium dreams, so he got this one for me as a Christmas present)

So the process is pretty simple: rocks, carbon, moss, dirt, then plants

My cousin also came over to partake in the terrarium fun

So that is pretty much it!

When I was at Michaels picking up the moss, I saw this really cute gold charger and decided to place my terrarium on that to display on my coffee table.
