terrarium homemade how to

What is the perfect gift for all occasions that just about anyone would enjoy? 


A Terrarium! 

Whether it’s a gift for Christmas, birthday, house warming, teacher’s gift, you name it! All you need to do is add the little personal touches at the end.

You’ll need:

  • A clear glass container
  • Rocks or pebbles
  • Potting mix
  • Plant cuttings or small bought plants 
*I used bought plants and added some of my own 


  1. Clean your container so there’s no dust or dirty marks.
  2. Your first level is the rocks. They’ll create drainage for the plants. Put about 5cm layer down
  3. Add your potting mix. You’ll need a good amount for the plants to be able to grown. 
  4. Position your plants/cuttings before you plant them so you know where everything will go. Plant them one by one and compact the soil around them.
  5. Give your new terrarium a little water.


Let your recipient know how to look after their new terrarium by making a little swing tag or writing in their card these few things: Lightly water your terrarium once/twice a week. Trim any plants that are growing over the edge or are getting too bushy.
