How to: Make a Super Easy DIY Terrarium Ready for Fall!

I'm trying to find ways to decorate my home seasonally without having to store more decor away for the year or reorganize an entire room for one holiday! As a busy mom, I'm finding less time to devote myself to redecorating the entire house. As much as I love it, it's nice to have a few pieces that can stay out year round and maybe save me a bit more time. A terrarium is the perfect solution to this problem!

Instructions

1. Give your fish tank a good cleaning. I used dish soap, as well as window cleaner.

2. For an everyday look, you can choose to go with a plant terrarium . Begin by placing plants in your terrarium - some may peek out above the top, but that's ok.

3. Build up your layers of moss. You can choose to do one variety at a time or mix them together throughout. I built up the moss layers to hide the plastic plant pots to make it look like the plants were growing up and out of the moss itself.

I love the pop of green it adds to the space - it's fresh and modern.

4. For a fall look, you may choose to add brass and rustic wood finishes, like driftwood.

5. For a seasonal look, such as Halloween, keep it simple by adding 2-3 traditional or eclectic pieces. Oddly enough this skull with a crow and ceramic hand can be placed on a shelving unit individually year round. But placed together, you instantly have a spooky vibe.

This is such an easy DIY and it's a lot of fun to play around with month to month and season to season. I can't wait to experiment with it for Christmas. I'm thinking battery operated string lights will look so pretty hidden throughout the moss with some white and bright accents!
