How To Make Your Own Terrarium Centerpiece
This time last year I treated myself to a terrarium from John Lewis, I fell in love with the shape and couldn’t wait to put it in the living room. Fast forward one year and it was still sat empty in the fireplace, it was time I got my ass into gear and put it to good use, so today I am showing you how to make your own terrarium centrepiece.
As I mentioned I got this terrarium from John Lewis but it is very easy to create your own versions using goldfish bowls and bell jars, basically anything glass with a wide enough depth and surface area to plant your succulents in will do just fine and will probably be a lot cheaper too!
This is how I did it…
You Will Need : A Terrarium// Slate shale// Soil// An assortment of succulents and/or cacti// Protective gardening gloves//
Step 1: Line the bottom of your terrarium with the slate shale this will help with drainage when you water.
Step 2: Add the soil. I filled mine so that it was about an inch to 2 inches from the top, to make sure there was enough room for all my plants.
Step 3: Start by planting your larger plants in the soil.
Step 4: Then fill in the spaces with your small plants and cacti.
Step 5: Give them a little water and woila you have your very own pretty indoor garden!
I love how rustic this terrarium looks! I cant wait to see yours, remember to hashtag #BespokeBride on Instagram and if you like our DIYs you can show your support by voting for us here & here, we would really appreciate it!
