15 Terrarium Ideas: Inspiration for Planting Succulents

Get inspired with this list of crafty ideas for terrariums and succulents.

By: Toby Kuhnke, Editor, FaveCrafts.com
Terrarium Ideas

Terrariums are a great way to bring a little piece of outside into your home. Perfect for desks, side tables, and decorating your window sills, these little slices of nature can transform your decor from drab and lifeless to warm and natural.

But let's face it, buying terrariums can be expensive.

Anyone who's been browsing through the plant section of the store has probably fallen in love with an adorable terrarium until they see the price tag. This is especially true for terrariums that are big and intricate. Making your own terrariums might seem daunting, but once you get inspired, you'll be creating your very own mini gardens in no time.

There's so much you can put in a terrarium besides just plants, too. From seashells and ceramic animals to stones, gnomes, and more, the possibilities for your terrariums are only limited by your imagination.

Watching some of these videos has helped me understand how to plant succulents. I love aloe Vera because i use it in so many daily routines and i had the idea of making a terrarium as a gift for a friend but it would not grow. Now i can finally use a mason jar to make one for his office desk.
