It's great to be back! After 2 months on hiatus, a BLOG post finally! I've recently got inspired to dig deep within my inner creativity and create something that's simple, yet beautiful. One day, I was walking in the mall when I passed by a cart stand that was selling Succulent Terrarium. After staring at this resilient plant for a few minutes, I've decided to "Hey!Why not make my own!". After discussing my ideas and plans with my sister, I have also convinced her to join me in this DIY project. Succulents are really easy to maintain, and it requires little attention. I wanted to make a terrarium for my desk at work, and this piece will definitely bring some liveliness to my work space.
Here are a few simple steps on how to create a Succulent Terrarium.
What you will need:
1) Preferred Vase
3) Potted Soil
4) Succulents (this can be purchased at Home Depot/Orchard Supplies/plant nurseries)
5) Plastic Cup
6) Pair of Gloves
Visit your local plant nursery to find the prettiest succulents. Prices of the different types of succulents will vary. The ones we've purchased ranged from $1.99-$6.99.
Pick a center piece for your terrarium. Our center pieces:
Place large (or small) stones on the bottom of the vase. Fill up the vase half way with potted soil.
After adding the soil, the fun part of arranging your succulents comes next! Be Creative and have fun! I would suggest that the taller succulents be placed on the outer edge of the vase so that it can grow up and out wards.
The end results of our master piece. My Succulent Terrarium. :)
I hope these photos inspired you to make your very own & good luck with your projects and have fun making one!
