the coffee table in my living has been sitting empty for the past few months
i have been waiting for the perfect "something" to place on it as a centerpiece
and i thought, hey! that's perfect
but oh me oh my, were they pricey to buy!
and then i thought, hey, they look easy enough to make
so that's what i set out to do one afternoon
it was easy peasy!
if you want to make one too, you will need
a glass container
a few succulents ( i got mine from home depot)
potting soil (not shown)
shovel and a watering can
step 1: layer the rocks on the bottom of your container
(this is for drainage said my hubs--he was helping me)
step 2: scoop the potting soil on top of the soil
(make sure it's deep enough to plant your succulents in)
step 3: arrange your succulents how you would like them
and then plant them, make sure they are right in the soil!
step 4: sprinkle with water!
tada! you have yourself your very own terrarium
i also placed a few pretty rocks on top to "break up" the soil
the best part is, you only need to water them once a month (or so)
so it's very low maintenance
and they sure are pretty looking!
