How to Make a Bundt Pan Terrarium
Use wire to string colorful tiny terrariums in a window as lively light catchers. Nestle a small houseplant in a clear glass vase, then add layers of potting mix, horticultural charcoal, and colored gravel or sand to cover the roots. Glass marbles bring glimmer to each tiny garden; fairy garden accents add interest.
Perfect for an indoor or outdoor arrangement, this colorful lantern packed with petite blooms can turn a lackluster entry or tabletop into a cheery sight. With a few simple supplies, you can (and should) steal this look for your own space.
For an easy way to embellish plain glass dishes, look to colorful paint pens and markers. A freehand herringbone design on the base of a terrarium adds playful interest while keeping cacti front and center.
Beach in a Bottle
Conjure fond memories of warm sand, rolling tides, and sunny days spent seaside with a beach-theme terrarium. Pebbles, sand, driftwood, and tufts of greenery establish the scene for a miniature display set inside an apothecary jar.
Draw attention to your greenery with whimsical plant hangers suspended from the ceiling. Try an old-made-new favorite, macrame, or attach paper butterflies to twine for a soaring statement.

All the '90s feels will come rushing back with this sand art project. Layer three colors of sand in a glass container before topping it off with an air plant and an adorable critter. Experiment with seashells, crystals, and miniature mix-ins for a delightfully quirky display.
