Now that the holidays are past and all the festive decor is taken down, it’s always nice to refresh your home decor with evergreen home accents that can be displayed all throughout the year. While browsing through some of my favorite home decor magazines I’ve come to adore the look of terrariums. There are so many ways to use terrariums in your home decor but I especially love them filled with foliage. Today I’m going to share how to make your own easy terrarium with succulents to get that trendy look for a fraction of the cost.
- Geometric Black Framed Glass Terrarium
- River Rocks
- Faux Succulents (I used these, these, & these)
- Floral Shears
Step 2. Next you’ll use floral shears (pliers) to trim down the succulents to fit inside the terrarium. You’ll want to leave enough length of stem so that the succulents can be set into the rocks and held into place.
Step 3. Now you’ll add in your succulents to the rocks. Be sure to keep the stems facing in the center so that they don’t protrude through the rocks and show through the glass. You can add moss if you want some extra “filler.”
This easy terrarium would also be lovely with real succulents too!
