I received this beautiful West Elm terrarium as a birthday present and wanted to put my own spin on it. I’m not one to keep plants alive under any circumstances, so I opted for the “fake” terrarium. I purchased artificial succulents, white rocks and soil, and went to work!
Some of the succulents were too large or long to fit inside the terrarium, so I just cut them to the size I needed.
And the final result! I did a bit of rearranging to figure out what worked best and I love how it all turned out! Now I can have a year- round gorgeous terrarium with zero maintenance. And the succulents actually look quite real in person, so I was really pleased with the end result. I would encourage any of you to make your own DIY terrariums (especially if you lack a green thumb). A fun, easy, affordable project with great results.
