Recycled Indoor Terrarium

By: Tiffany Windsor

Turn a small space into an indoor garden. Create your own Recycled Indoor Terrarium from Tiffany Windsor using glass containers and discarded jewelry. Add ribbon and other trim to the outside of the jar to make it extra special. Going green has never been so easy and fun!

Materials:

  • Aleene’s Tacky Dot Singles
  • Glass containers (jars, vases, bowls)
  • Small pebbles
  • Activated charcoal
  • Terrarium soil (fine potting soil)
  • Small plants (air plants, succulents, small ferns)
  • Moss
  • Trims (ribbons, jewelry, embellishments)

Instructions:

  1. Select your glass bowl, jar or vase. Traditional terrariums are tall and deep and you only plant about 5″ up from the bottom. However, I could not find that size glass container at my local thrift stores, so, I decided to select this candy bowl.

  2. Fill the bottom of your glass container with about 1/2″ pebbles. (I purchased mine from my local pet store.)

  3. Cover the pebbles with a layer of activated charcoal (also purchased from my local pet store but you can also find in garden department at local hardware store.)

  7. To decorate my glass container, I used Aleene’s Tacky Dot Singles to hold my ribbon in place.

  8. Just adhere a Tacky Dot about every 3″ to the back of the ribbon.

  9. To add the finishing touch, I glued a piece of jewelry over my knotted ribbon. Enjoy your indoor garden!
