Not sure if it's just us, but we keep seeing terrariums everywhere and it was love at first sight. We decided to make our own, and if you don't have a green thumb like us, than these little plants are a great home project for you! AND they only take 10 min (if that!) to assemble.
For the most part, terrariums look the same but we really tried to find embellishments to jazz ours up differently. Lucky for us, Michael's has EVERYTHING...
- Air plants from a local florist - Rook and Rose
- Mason jars
- Burlap material
- Large and small matte black rocks (on sale for $1 a bag.... win!)
- Starfish and sand dollar charms (we came across these in the floral section - so random!)
Even though we used the same materials, we always find a way to add our own spin to them.
To care for the air plant, all you need to do is 'mist' it once a week... Yup! These babies also last forever and grow fairly slowly. Rook and Rose was selling some that were 30 years old that were about the size of a melon - I guess if ours last that long we will need to get a bigger jar!
We have a strong feeling that this is just the first of many terrariums we will make... and what a cute housewarming gift it would be for someone, or to use as office decor! The possibilites are endless...
Did we convince you to make one yet?!
