A terrarium is a wonderful way to introduce a miniature landscape inside your home. They are easy to assemble and take very little time if you gather all the materials needed beforehand. We have collected some DIY terrarium ideas that will surely inspire you and spark your creativity:

To make this terrarium first you have to put a layer of small river rocks around the edges of the jar’s bottom. Then fill it with soil and add plants. Decorate it further with artificial moss and a plastic toy bear to give a woodland effect.
2. Use Picture Frames

Join three equal sized picture frames with any type of tape. Then make a triangle of the frames and apply hot glue to retain the shape of the frames in this form. Remove the tape and put this triangle picture frame enclosure on a dish. Fill it with fine gravel and then fix artificial cacti. This idea is great for those who have a brown thumb.
3. Create A Terrarium with Dinosaurs for Kids
