Christmas Terraiums are great inexpensive decorations or presents. They’re super fun to make and the whole family can get involved. They keep well and can be used as table centre pieces, mantlepiece decorations, or coffee table talking pieces. The process is simple just follow the following steps and you will have a beautiful Christmas Terrarium in no time at all.
Step 1: Decide on the container you are going to use. I recommend using a recycled jar otherwise you could buy a Maison jar, lantern, bauble of even a glass vase.
Step 2: Decide on a theme e.g. Winter Christmas, The North Pole, Winter Woodland, Tropical, Aussie Christmas
Step 3: Gather together the ornaments that you are going to use. Many of these you probably have in your Christmas box, if not a quick trip to the dollar store should give you everything you need. Make sure you keep you theme in mind when you buy your items. Here are a few suggestions for each theme:
-Winter Woodland: Pine Trees, Woodland Animals, Pinecones, Car, Lamp Posts
-The North Pole: Candy Canes, Santa, Elves, Small Buildings, Sleigh, Reindeer
-White Christmas: Christmas Tree, People, Fireplace, Snow House
-Tropical: Palm trees, Surfboards, Santas, Umbrella, Shark
-Aussie Christmas: Gum Nuts, Koalas, Ute, Eucalyptus Leaves, Kangaroos, BBQ
Step 4: Pick a base to e.g. artificial snow, epson salts, fake moss, beach sand, coloured sand, decorative stones, soil
Step 5: Construct you terrarium, Start with base then slowly add in ornaments to make sure you don’t over crowd. Terrariums look better when there are 1-2 things to focus on.
Step 6: Decorate the Terrarium with wire lights, ribbon and bells. Then display or gift your terrariums 🙂
