You can buy terrariums at multiple stores, but sometimes it's more rewarding to tap into your own creativity and see what can come out of a little experimentation. The other day while grocery shopping my roommate and I found these adorable succulents at our local market, East Side Marketplace. They were about $4-$5 a piece and we couldn't resist grabbing a few. I wanted to relocate them into a cuter pot or jar so I decided to create a mini DIY terrarium.
What you'll need:
2. Your bowl/ container of choice
3. Potting soil
4. Pebbles / Rocks
5. Wooden round
I got my bowl and wooden round from Marshals for about $5 a piece. I upcycled the potting soil from an old hanging plant and the pebbles from an old fishbowl.
First depot your succulents. Next, Put a layer of your potting soil at the bottom of your bowl. Gently replant your succulents into the soil, you can slightly crumble and reshape the soil they are in currently to fit their new space. Be careful not to break their leaves and roots. Lastly, decorate with pebbles, rocks, shells, or whatever you like!
This was my finished product. I decided to only use two plants based on the size of my container. The total cost of this project was about $20 and much more fun than just buying something similar at a store. It was the perfect project for a relaxing Saturday.
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far!
