Terrarium DIY (Made Easy)……
Terrarium DIY’s are a really cool fun project… Mr. JW was the hands behind this plant fun. We took a visit to Enchanted Gardens (garden nursery) the other day, I wrote about it here. Mr. JW and I decided to create a Terrarium DIY to expand our plant population in our home. Hubby has more of a green thumb than myself, and he does extremely well with them. Terrariums can be very elaborate, or more simple like this one that we created. In this picture above these are the items that we decided to use to create this very simple, cute, and colorful Terrarium DIY…
- Huge glass container – (Amazon here, or Ross where I found mines)
- Miracle Gro- Potting Soil
- 2-3 small plants to fit into Glass container..
- Plants above: Indian Grass, or Spotted Lady
- Decorative Rocks (Hobby Lobby)
- Small pieces to decorate at the end (Enchanted Garden or Hobby Lobby)
Mr. JW loved the date that we spent at the Enchanted Garden here. He has a really great green thumb, and does really well with indoor plants. We fell in love so much that we decided to create our very own Terrarium DIY, to add more plant life to our home.
Building The Terrarium DIY……
Please don’t over fill the Terrarium with too much soil from the start, or you won’t have enough room for the plants at the end of the building stage. You don’t specifically have to use Miracle Gro, we just chose any type of potting soil that we had on hand, or was on sale. You could also add some small lights inside the Terrarium to illuminate any room in the house.
I chose these colored stones for the color scheme that I have going through my home, and they really stood out against the soil. You can add any type of rocks, stones, or pebbles that fit your fancy. This is just what I liked and picked up at Hobby Lobby to go with my home decor.
We decided to trim off the dead end plants so that so that the Indian grass could thrive and grow more. This is Mr. JW’s favorite part, and he loves this green thumb stuff. I just sit back in awe and watch him relish in the nature.
This was a very fun DIY, and I think hubby enjoyed this more than me. We thought that it would be very cute to purchase a few decorative pieces to throw in the Terrarium for a little laugh, or more eye candy. Well, this is my “CRAZY COOP”, and I enjoy every bit of it…..
Have you done any Terrariums before? Do you like plants in your home, and if so what types?
