Step 1

Gather materials. You’ll need metallic spray paint, a variety of faux succulents, dried eucalyptus and/or faux foliage, a glass terrarium and hot glue. If you prefer an all-natural palette, skip the spray paint. You can find the terrariums at a local craft store – the terrariums we used had soldered loops at top. You can also hang these from tree limbs outdoors to create gorgeous hanging lanterns, if desired!

Step 2

Use the spray paint, if desired, to fully cover a few (or all!) of your succulents. Let them dry fully! It helps to place the succulents at the bottom of a large cardboard box – save a shipping box and use as a spray paint station!

Step 3

Cut a few small clippings of your leafy foliage. Use small dots of hot glue to cover the bottom of the glass terrarium. Don’t go overboard here- a few will do the trick!

Cut a few small clippings of your eucalyptus. You can also sub in more foliage or a different dried flower.

Step 5

Start layering the eucalyptus, succulents and leaves in your terrarium, using small dots of hot glue as needed. Try to keep the glue spots hidden, so that the terrarium looks nice at all angles.
