First of all, thank you to everyone who has submitted their amazing projects and makeovers to me to be featured here on The Blissful Bee! I’ve received a ton of great work and cannot wait to sift through everyone’s submissions. If you haven’t submitted a project or makeover yet, you can do so here.
Today’s reader feature is a DIY terrarium submitted by Lisa and Rachel from KindredCreativity.com. They are two kindred spirits and besties who just began their lifestyle blog adventure. Exciting, huh??
They both share a love of all things creative, not to mention red wine, reality tv, and whatever they can find on Netflix. Rachel resides in the bustling city of Baltimore, MD, while Lisa lives in Nashville, TN.
The seasons are changing and we’re starting to transition into Summer. One of the things we all love about this time of year is the new growth and the beautiful blooms.
Want to bring some of that living goodness into your place, without a lot of the dirty work? Here is an easy five step DIY project that you can add to your desk at work or your window at home.
What you will need:
- Charcoal chips
- Sphagnum moss (also known as dry moss)
- Decorative rocks (optional)
Simply put a layer of pebbles or rocks mixed with charcoal chips in the base of your container.
Add a second layer of the moss and a third layer of soil (this should be your thickest layer and should stop just below the lip of your tray).
Map out and plant your succulents. We suggest purchasing a mixture of tall and short succulents to give it some depth. After planting, make sure to bury any roots in the soil.
Any any decorative rocks to the top of your soil.
Water your terrarium very lightly as it will be recycling water, and then place it near a window so it gets some sun, and you are done!
If you want to skip a lot of that guesswork, and extra supplies, here is a kit from Amazon that makes it incredibly easy.
I hope you enjoyed today’s reader feature! Make sure to stop by Lisa and Rachel’s blog to see more of their DIYs. And don’t forget to submit your work for my next reader feature. You can read all about my requirements here.
