I really like almost all the trends that are out there right now but one of my favorites are terrariums. I got a chance to make one this weekend because of this little problem.
Seriously, I cannot keep a plant alive for more then 3-4 months. But obviously I keep trying so I thought this was the perfect chance to plant some succulents.
I found the glass container at my local Goodwill, I think I paid $2.00 for it. The succulents are from Lowe’s, I’m pretty sure I paid $3.00 a piece for them and I bought 3 of them. (I like odd numbers.) While I was at Lowe’s I noticed they’ve caught wind of the terrarium trend too and were selling them for over $30.00. (DIY people.)
I already had the potting soil and I also had the pea gravel from our many outdoor projects from last year. So I put some soil on the bottom then arranged the plants and buried them with more soil and then covered the top of the soil with pea gravel. I used a small paint brush to get the dirt and pebbles off the plants.
This whole thing took all of 15 minutes to do and I love the results!!! (Even if I didn’t do it justice by using my iPhone.)
