DIY Hanging Terrarium


I made my first terrarium yesterday! I've wanted one for a while now, I've started collecting plants for our little studio, but because I didn't really love any that I saw I decided to make my own. 

This is how I made my bohemian-inspired hanging terrarium:
(Every item I used was purchased on Etsy, check the bottom of this post for my favorite plant supply sellers!)
First, find an awesome glass jar, bubble, vase, whatever, to hold your glorious creation. I like the idea of clear glass so you can see all of the bits you strategically added.
Pick your plants, you can use succulents obviously but I was intrigued by air plants (they need no soil, so cool!) so I knew I had to have one for my first terrarium. You need to rinse your air plant and let it dry completely before you put it into your terrarium.
Choose some beautiful reindeer moss, it comes in almost every color, I chose chartreuse because I thought it would look pretty against my amethyst, which brings us to the next step! 
You'll need some pebbles or sand to rest your plants on, I found some neutral colored pebbled and added amethyst and pyrite for the top. I loved the idea of crystals in my terrarium, so pretty! 
After I set it up, I wrapped clear fishing line that you can find at any craft or general store, around a shelf and hung my beautiful, new, and self-designed terrarium. 

This has to be my favorite recent project and I hope you all try it out and add some pretty living creatures to your home!
