A large glass terrarium is something I have wanted for some time now. I finally picked one up and added in some faux succulents and I think I just might love it! The terrarium actually comes with a rustic finish so it fit right in with my farmhouse style right out of the package. I love a decorating project that takes about 10 minutes and has a big impact! This one was originally posted over on the Darice blog where I am a paid contributor but I thought I would post it here in case you missed it.
Supplies needed to make this large glass terrarium display:

- Rustic terrarium (click here to purchase the version I am using)
- Succulents (look for colorful ones or use all green)
I actually just bent the stems of my succulents and laid them inside the terrarium. I didn’t want these to be permanent just in case I wanted to change up the display later. This way I can reuse both the large glass terrarium and the succulents in the future to create something completely different.
You do want to be mindful and make sure the display looks good from both the front and the sides. So make your succulents shorter in the front and fill in with some smaller ones on the sides.
Once you are happy with the way this looks, you can close the top and set anywhere in your home. By using faux succulents, you don’t have to water this one or take care of it in anyway! Just enjoy your farmhouse terrarium and those gorgeous succulents!
This one will look great in just about any room or even the centerpiece on a table.
And yes all of that rustic farmhouse style charm is built right in! No need to break out the paint or sand paper on this one.
So, will you be adding a large glass terrarium to your home?
