DIY Air Plant Terrarium

Here I go again with the terrariums... I promise this one is different, though! About a month ago, I ran into two of the most perfect glass vessels I've ever seen: an Apple and a Pear. I quickly snatched them up at about $15 for both and knew exactly what they would become--They were destined to be my two new air plant terrariums as kitchen decor! I had seen air plants for sale at West Elm but at $6 each, I knew I could find them cheaper elsewhere. Etsy had a nice variety of air plant bundles and I purchased from this vendor who had fast shipping and great prices.

I didn't know if these looked better with dirt, rocks, or sand, so I did a quick search on the interwebs and came across these photos. Umm...pretty perfect! Great minds think alike!

Here are my copy-cats!

I couldn't really find a good place for them in the kitchen so they're now my new and improved dining table centerpieces. I'm in love.

  2. These are so great! I found similar little vessels at Marshall's and am thinking of making these as centerpieces for my patio tables. Thanks for the awesome idea and inspiration!
