I just love unusual ideas for wedding ring boxes. They’re just more fun compared to wedding ring pillows – don’t you think? They also make for a great photo background for your special rings. Today I’ll be showing you how to create a DIY ring box from a terrarium – it’s really easy and very eye-catching. So what are you waiting for? Jump in and make this with me!
Supplies needed to make your own DIY ring box terrarium:
- Gold Pyramid Terrarium
- Faux Succulents
- Wire Cutters
- Green Moss
- Small Wood Cutout
- Brown Paint
- “I Do” Mini Flag Printable (download for personal use only here)
Step 2. Once dry, drill two holes in the middle and thread some jute twine – this will serve to hold your rings so they don’t move around!
Step 3. Adhere your wood base onto your terrarium using a LOW-TEMP glue gun. Make sure you use a low-temp glue gun to reduce the chance of breaking the terrarium glass. Make sure that the wood base is adhered closer to the opening and not the center of the terrarium base – we would like more space in the back to add our faux succulents.
Step 4. Now arrange your succulents. If using faux succulents, trim them and make them irregular to keep them looking realistic. Use a pair of wire cutters to easily trim the stalks of your faux succulents – a normal pair of scissors does not work well with these. Build up your succulent arrangement and add green moss to fill bald areas.
Step 5. Print and cut your preferred “I Do” flag style and adhere it to a succulent stalk (such as what I did) or a wooden dowel. Carefully attach it to your arrangement – you may want to use a pair of tweezers to guide them to the right spot.
