Just like our DIY live edge side table, this project was born last minute during our game room renovation. And just like that project, we decided to repurpose part of our wedding centerpieces to create the project! It was a great way to move our wedding decor out of storage, save some money, and add something sentimental to our space.
So let’s start DIYing!

How to make a Terrarium with Faux Plants
Wish you could build magazine-worthy furniture and decor without a workshop full of expensive tools? Get the Essential Tools Roadmap and find out which tools are essential to DIY and which 3 tools you should start with.
Step 1: glue rocks
Glue rocks into the bottom of the terrarium. These will mostly be covered up, so it’s okay if you can see the glue. We put a layer of glue on the bottom of the terrarium and then threw in some rocks. Then we added more glue and added another layer of rocks.
Step 2: add your faux greenery
Cut the stems off your faux greenery and make an arrangement that you like. Glue them together so that the arrangement stays in place. Again, don’t worry about glue blobs at the bottom of the greenery bundle, you won’t see it.
Add a pile of glue to the middle of your terrarium and at the bottom of your arrangement and then place the arrangement in the terrarium.
step 3: add more rocks
Then glue in rocks one by one to make the terrarium look full and to cover up any glue that you can see
There you have it! A simple, but beautiful glass terrarium! The best part? You can’t kill the plants ? I don’t know about you, but I do NOT have a green thumb!
And as always, we would LOVE to see your photos. Send us (or tag us in) a picture of your terrarium on Instagram and feel free to reach out with any questions!
