Budget Terrarium

Hi guys! Yes it’s been a while since my last post but no worries I am back in full swing.

Today I’m showing you how to make your own budget terrarium. It’s really quite simple.

These things are great to liven up a space in the bedroom, study or living room and they are very easy to maintain. Don’t pay $50 + for one at David Jones or some expensive nursery, do it the tightarse way and make it yourself.

Firstly you need a couple of glass ornament Christmas globes. I’ve used these on a previous project if you remember which was the floating tree with tea light candles and they are great!

The best place to find these are at your local $2 store. So cheap!!

Next you need the succulents to place inside. Now to find these you can go to your local nursery and pay $7 or you can do what I did and rip a couple out from your neighbours front garden (it was over grown and I was doing them a favour anyways so no judgement, you get what you pay for on is blog… Which is free lol)

Anyway succulents are low maintenance and don’t require much water. But make sure to by succulent soil as this will help them recover when planted (especially if you did what I did and ripped them from the ground)

Next buy some 3m hooks from Bunnings which as like $4 and get some string which you could also buy from Bunnings or you can do what I did and take a crap load of it for free from ikea.

Position them where you want in your room and your done!

David Jones price: $50

Dave’s price: $7

Enjoy!!!

  1. Ahaha you ripped them out of your neighbour’s garden. Funniest thing I’ve read in a while.
    I’ve been seeing these in shops and they’re quite pricey but yours looks just as good
