I’ve got another DIY home decor project to share with y’all today. I love periodically adding new pieces to my decor and rotating different pieces around the house to freshen up the feel of the rooms. Sometimes all it takes to fall back in love with a space is a little bit of redecorating with pieces you already have or adding a small new piece like I did.
I love decorating with succulents so much! I think they are the coolest looking plants and they are so easy to care for. All you have to do is give them a little spritz maybe once a month to keep them going. They are very trendy right now so they are pretty easy to find.
For a while now I’ve been wanting to do a terrarium with succulents somewhere around the house, but terrariums, being as trendy they are, have gone up a lot in price and I just couldn’t stomach paying $30 for a glass box with an opening. I have weird hang ups like that. I know $30 isn’t that much but I enjoy finding things at really good discounts and the terrarium I am using today is no exception. I found it at Hobby Lobby on an 80% off sale for $4.00! It’s a tiny one, but I felt really accomplished and I was so excited to finally be able to do a terrarium for the house. I grabbed some other odds and ends I had lying around and put together this piece.
- Glass terrarium
- Succulent, living or plastic
- Glass pebbles
- Washi tape
First I applied washi tape along the base of the triangle cutting the pieces to fit. I wanted to add some more color and interest to the glass and I really like the metallic sheen that it has. I have lots of pops of metallic golds and silvers in my home already, so I tied this piece in with all of those.
Next I just added the glass pebbles and the succulent to the terrarium. I had an extra plastic succulent already so I used that one. If you use a live succulent, make sure to add a little soil and plant the succulent and then add the glass pebbles all around to cover the dirt. Spritz with water about once a month to keep it happy.
I love the way it looks in my living room! I like to have interesting pieces that are unique and that really speak to my design aesthetic.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Have a wonderful weekend everybody!
