I love this “how to” tutorial because it’s so simple that even my toddler can make it! So, all of you “non creative” people out there can easily make this terrarium. I also did this as a craft for my local MOPS group and EVERY SINGLE MOM completed the project and was pleased with the outcome. This is rare, because there are usually at least 3 or 4 moms who get to chit chatting and either don’t complete the project or don’t like how it turned out.
An added bonus to this tutorial is that everything is from the Dollar Store. That’s right, so this whole project is a whopping 3 dollars! You just can’t beat a DIY project that is under $5 dollars!
People often ask me since I love creating things so much, do I enjoy crafts with my toddler? The honest answer is no. I don’t enjoy kids crafts at all. BUT I do my best to include my toddler in the crafts that I am working on. Obviously she’s not going to be able to knit or crochet right now (she’s 3) but she can paint on her own paper and for this project, she can put rocks in a pot.
Anyway, to get started with this DIY succulent terrarium, here are the supplies you need
SUPPLIES: All from the Dollar Store
Rocks (brown or white)
Begin by adding rocks to about half of the container. If your succulent has a long stem then you will want to add the succulent to the jar before you fill the jar completely full. If you want to make sure that the succulent doesn’t move you can also glue the succulent to the rocks.
Next, place the succulent with the long stem in the container. Then simply fill the jar up to the top with rocks.
Next, add the smaller succulent to the jar. You can also glue this in for more security.
STEP 4: (Optional)
If you want to add a “little something” to your terrarium you can wrap some string around your container. My daughter actually inspired this idea when she was wrapping string around her little succulent. Here’s a picture of her making one.
Like I said earlier, if my 3 year old toddler can make this, ANYONE can make it!
