Simple Succulents Terrarium
Large glass jar
Assorted faux succulents
As mentioned, all of these supplies for these dollar store crafts can be found at your local Dollar Tree store. Choose from a variety of succulents in various colors and shapes, as well as various sand and gravel varieties.
1. Begin by creating a layer using the white gravel. A one inch layer works well, but you can add or
subtract the amount of gravel you use according to the size of your container.
2. Next, add a layer of black sand. It will trickle through the gravel slightly so you will need to add generously so see it layer.
3. Create the top coat by adding a layer of faux moss. You can add as little or as much as you would like, creating an even coat or one that is more natural and lumpy.
4. Now comes the fun part, adding your succulents! The amount you add will again depend on the size of the container you are using. You can cut down the stems if you wish, or pres them directly through the moss and into the container. Pack them in closely into a nice bundle.
Your succulents terrarium is now ready to be displayed. The best part is it requires no water or sun and can be displayed anywhere without fuss!
