I’ve been wanting to create my own faux terrarium for some time as I have a particularly poor green thumb. I’ve been known to overwater succulents and underwater houseplants so I tend to stick to throwing wildflower seeds about outside when it comes to planting.

I also wanted a terrarium for a rather dim room in my home which never seems to work out in my favor. So rather than buy a live terrarium I decided to create my own custom DIY geometric glass terrarium using rocks, orchid bark, preserved moss and fake flowers.

I kind of winged this project as I’d never tried creating a terrarium using fake plants with no dirt to root them into. But I ended up being pleased with how pretty my DIY geometric glass terrarium turned out in the end.

Materials Needed:

Quality Growers The Moss Collection Preserved Moss (or SuperMoss Preserved Moss Mix)
Orchid Bark or similar
small rocks or pebbles
geometric glass terrarium, of choice
green floral foam
strong multi-surface glue that dries clear
faux flower stem(s)
skewer or chopstick
scissors and/or knife

Directions:

Once you’ve shopped for and gathered your materials you’re ready to get started!

Learn how to create your own DIY geometric glass terrarium filled with faux plants! This easy tutorial will walk you through the steps to creating your own unique terrarium arrangement for your next home accent piece - all without the worry of watering and maintaining your plants.

You should be able to find most if not all of the elements needed for your DIY geometric glass terrarium at your local craft store in the floral section. If this option isn’t available to you, you can easily find the items you need online.

Learn how to create your own DIY geometric glass terrarium filled with faux plants! This easy tutorial will walk you through the steps to creating your own unique terrarium arrangement for your next home accent piece - all without the worry of watering and maintaining your plants.

You’ll begin by cutting down your block of green floral foam.  (I used a wet foam block as this worked better for my purpose.) Cut the block so it’s about a half an inch high. Then cut the edges into a shape that fits inside of your geometric glass terrarium.

You can do this by placing the terrarium on top of the foam block and tracing a line around it. Then using a knife cut the block slightly smaller than the opening in your terrarium. You want it small enough that you can get the foam block into the terrarium after you’ve glued the elements onto the top and sides.

Now spread glue across the top of the floral foam.

Once you have the glue in place, tear off a section of the moss and gently press it onto the foam.

Clip smaller sections of flowers or buds from the faux flower stem you’ve chosen to use and position them around and in between the moss, pressing the stems into the floral foam to keep them in place.

Follow this some of the orchid bark, gluing it onto the floral foam as desired. Then, repeat this process with more moss, flowers and bark on the top and sides of the floral foam to suit using more glue as needed.

Repeat until the entire foam block is covered.

If desired you can also glue rocks as well to the top of the arrangement.

Once you are satisfied with the arrangement, allow the glue to dry.

Once the glue on the arrangement for your DIY geometric glass terrarium has dried, place some glue on the bottom of the terrarium. Then carefully place the floral and moss arrangement inside the terrarium on top of the glue, gently pressing it into place.

Finally, add a mix of orchid bark and rocks around the arrangement in the bottom of the terrarium to surround the foam block with your moss and floral arrangement. Use a skewer or a chopstick to move rocks and bark into empty spaces and desired locations.

Mod Podge Canvas Photo DIY

DIY Mod Podge Canvas Photo Art

Since I haven’t yet had a chance to get my own hands dirty since my getting back from my vacation, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share another project with you created by my coworker, Erica. She is – like many of us – on the fast track to becoming a bonified Pinterest addict, and is trying new craft projects she’s discovered on Pinterest on what is becoming a regular basis. You might recall the diy crayon canvas artwork she brought into the office recently or the pretty handmade tile coasters she made for me last Christmas. Her next project is going to be a diy pallet coffee table, however, just before I left for vacation she shared step-by-step photos of her newest project for making Mod Podge canvas photos – like the ones pictured above via a tutorial discovered on Pinterest from Aubut Family blog – so I could in turn share it with my readers.

How to Make DIY Mod Podge Canvas PhotosStep one is to gather your materials. You’ll need a canvas, a photograph, a foam brush, scissors, Mod Podge, clear acrylic sealer and some paint and/or decorative scrap book paper.

DIY Mod Podge Canvas Photographs

First she cut the photo she had chosen to use to fit her canvas. As she wanted a border around the front of the picture, she cut it slightly smaller than the canvas.

Next, she used Mod Podge to glue the papers along the sides of the canvas by applying Mod Podge to the sides of the canvas, placing the papers, then brushing an additional layer of Mod Podge over the papers. (The parts along the edges left uncovered will be painted later on.)

How to Make DIY Canvas Photos with Mod PodgeNext, she centered the photograph onto the front of canvas. Once she placed the photo onto the canvas she then brushed another layer of Mod Podge on top of the photograph.

Handmade Mod Podge Canvas Photograph DIYOnce the Mod Podge had dried, she simply brushed black paint around the edges of the photograph and the sides of the blank canvas that had been left exposed. (This can be neat or messy depending on your own personal look you’d like to achieve so don’t feel as if there is a right or wrong way!) Once the paint had dried, she sealed the photo canvas with a clear acrylic spray. (I’ve always used Plaid brand in matte or gloss.) Once your own canvas photo has completely dried, all that’s left is to display your masterpiece.

Pinterest Inspired DIY Artwork for Home & Office

DIY Crayon Canvas ArtworkMy co-worker Erica, who made me a set of lovely coasters last Christmas, has been getting her craft on recently to bring some new life to her office here at work. Inspired by projects she discovered on Pinterest, she created a lovely collection of new “attire” for her blank walls. (Please excuse the quality of these pics. I photographed them with my cell phone.)

Crayon Canvas Paintings - DIY Art Project for your walls that's both inexpensive and easyErica made these crayon “paintings” from a box of crayons – with back to school right around the corner you can pick these up for super cheap! – artist canvas, a hot glue gun and a hair dryer. Simply use a hot glue gun to glue crayons along the top of a blank canvas, then use a hair dryer to melt the crayons so the colors run down the canvas creating a one of kind work of art.

Mod Podge Scrapbook Paper Wall Covering Art DIYThese works of art were created using square canvases, scrapbook papers, mod podge and paint. Simply cut scrapbook papers to fit the canvas size and use mod podge to adhere the decorative papers to the front of the canvas. Once dry, paint around the sides of the canvas – based on Erica’s paper choices she used brown paint – and lightly brush paint around the edges of the papers on the front. Let dry and hang!

DIY Ruler Clip Board OrganizerErica also made a place to hold and organize her important notes and phone lists she uses on a daily basis. She purchased jumbo clothespins, painted them black then glued them to a yard stick. She initially tried to hot glue the clothespins but found that they didn’t hold with hot glue. I recommended E-6000 glue (craft adhesive) since it holds just about everything and it worked like a charm.

Kitchen Inspiration

My kitchen is currently in that in between stage. You know, where you have Kilz on the walls and are still deciding on paint colors and tiles for a backsplash. Picking a color scheme for the walls and cabinets has not been easy. It’s been months and I’m still undecided. So I thought I might pull a little inspiration from artwork created specifically for a kitchen. This led me to the discovery of artist, Yael Berger, and the shop, The Joy of Color. Here are a few of my favorite watercolor and digital illustration picks that I think would suit any kitchen that needs just touch of whimsey.
