DIY Project: Succulent Terrarium

Lindsay Thompson created a gorgeous and inexpensive succulent terrarium this weekend and asked if she could share it with decor8 readers. Um... Let me think about it Lindsay... JA! This is so nice, I couldn't refuse. She outlines all the details over on her blog, but here's the quick and dirty version.

Step No. 01 | Purchase Supplies: Glass container, rocks, horticultural charcoal, cactus soil, plants. Details about each on Lindsay's blog.

Step No. 02 | Create: Layer rocks and charcoal, add soil, plant your succulents. Details on how to create a succulent terrarium that doesn't suc, here.

Step No. 03 | Add stuff, embellish. Ribbon, a garden marker, tiny plastic animals, whatever you want.

Step No. 04 | Label it if you plan to give it as a prezzie. Label shown above reads: How to care for your Succulent Terrarium. No. 01: Don't over water. No. 02: These succas like it hot! (full sun). No. 03: Love on them & enjoy.

You know you wanna make one now, don't you? I do! If anyone else has a good DIY that they'd like to submit to decor8, please contact me at decor8blog AT yahoo DOT com. Thank you Lindsay, this is great!
