Create a gorgeous glass and driftwood centerpiece by turning a pretty container into a terrarium with these simple steps.
How are you doing today my friends? I’m getting ready for a long weekend with my girlfriends (12 of us) in Taipei for the holiday. I can’t wait to explore a new city and we have a beautiful hike planned in one of the national parks. I just love girl trips and we have the sweetest husbands to stay home with our kids.
Anyhoo, a few weeks ago I shared my Glass and Driftwood Terrarium at Over the Big Moon and wanted to give you all the details today.
I bought this cool glass and driftwood fishbowl for my husband as an anniversary gift. He loved it but I knew fish wasn’t the best option for our family with young children and pets. Much to my children’s disappointment. (And I’m sure the cat.) Turning it into a terrarium was the perfect DIY!
After doing a little research I did a little shopping in the Japanese hardware and garden store to find what I needed. I then carefully placed each plant layer in the bowl and gave it a little water.
Here’s the layers to create your own terrarium.
- Decorative rocks
- Potting soil
- Textural moss
- Medium sized rocks
- Activated charcoal
Simply layer the ingredients in above order and planting your succulents into the soil before adding the decorative rocks on the very top.
I put it together about 5 weeks ago and it’s doing great sitting near a window in our foyer.
One day I would love to have fish in it but I’m always a fan for adding more greenery.
