How to Make a DIY Air Plant Terrarium
I’m going to be honest here. Sometimes I just need simple and fast DIY gratification. There’s something therapeutic about starting and actually completing a project in one short sitting. And it really doesn’t get simpler (or faster) than this project. Seriously guys, it’s only three simple steps and can be completed in just a couple of minutes.
WHAT TO GET:
-Glass beaker (I got mine here)
-A small handful of river stones
-Small air plant
WHAT TO DO:
1. Starting with a clean beaker, place a layer of river rocks at the bottom.
2. Next break of a small piece of reindeer moss and lay on top of the rocks. I like to use colored moss for added interest, but green moss is easier to find in-person and works just as well!
3. Finish your terrarium by placing your air plant on your fluffy cloud of moss. It helps to “dig” a little hole in your moss to help your air plant sit straight up.
4. Terrarium care: remove plant from terrarium and soak in a bowl of water for 30 minutes, once a week. Alternately, you can spray the plant with a mister once every four to five days.
Because of the beaker, I think this terrarium would make a rad back-to-school teacher gift! However, you can replicate this project in just about any other kind of open glass vessel. I would love to hear your suggestions for a unique terrarium vessel in the comments below!
I’m crazy for Air plants right now.
My vessel is a mason jar and I fill the bottom with leftover buttons from my projects. Layer moss on top of the buttons and then I can always find a spare button when I need it!
Hello! Do you mind sharing where you got this reindeer moss? I love the color. Thanks!
I also would like to look for reindeer moss! I don’t know so if you have suggestions. I’m thinking maybe Walmart? well let m e know okay. Thank you.
