Home Made Decorative Terrarium
This Home Made Decorative Terrarium project can be such a cute idea for any room. I have it sitting in my office on a stand and love to look over and admire how adorable it looks. My daughter is begging me to make one for her room. Love the look and added décor it brings.
How to Make the Decorative Terrarium
Materials Needed to Make a Decorative Terrarium
- 4 – 5 x 7 picture frames
- 2 – 3.5 x 5 picture frames
- hot glue gun
- spray paint
- the base for terrarium (white cardboard box) optional
Time needed: 2 hours
- Step One
Remove the back, and glass from all frames.
- Step Two
Spray Paint all frames.
- Step Three
Once all frames are dry put the glass back into the frames and secure them with your tabs. Now you can frame your terrarium. Take all the 5 x 7 frames and using your hot glue gun frame all 4 walls of your terrarium. Once secure take the 3.5 x 5 frames and in a form of a triangle hot glue them to form the roof of your terrarium.
Note: You can even use masking tape or painters tape to help secure the frame until the glue is solid and dry.
- Step Four
Once your terrarium is dry and secure place it on top of your white cardboard box. Using a pencil draw around the base of the frame where you will cut the cardboard to fit the bottom of your terrarium. Using your hot glue gun, glue the base to the frame.
Note: You can use another 5 7 picture frame if you would like for the base. I had extra cardboard at home to use.
Once the base is secure to your frame you can put whatever you would like inside of your terrarium.
