DIY Succulent Terrarium
How to put together a little succulent terrarium using a candleholder (community article)
I put together a succulent terrarium and it's the cutest thing ever. As such, I had to share it with you ladies! They can be used as table centerpieces or perhaps favors if you have a small guestlist.
I had been seeing these little succulariums on Etsy where people are charging something like 30 bucks for them. I made mine for around $10! I found the candleholder at CB2 in San Francisco and thought it would make the perfect container: I was RIGHT!
The cast of characters:
Lowes had a great selection of succulents. I picked Graptoveria "Moonglow." I nearly bought a bag of small rocks from their gardening section too until DH said "I can just pick up some rocks for you out along the road!" I love my thrifty, resourceful husband. :D
If you use the same sort of succulent I did, you just need to water it once a week by using a spray bottle to spritz the dirt portion a bit. Less water is more for these little guys. Place it in an area that receives direct sunlight for several hours a day.
It will enjoy the sun on my kitchen window sill :D
