So this holiday season has totally gotten away from me and I haven’t posted as much or as often as I wanted to. I’ve had this idea floating around ever since I created my Diorama Christmas Ornaments for the 2017 Ornament Exchange but it took some time for me to actually sit down and make it. I swear, one day I’ll get this work and blog balance right. ;)
- Clear, plastic, open front ornament
- Paint in choice of colors
- Paintbrushes in various sizes
- Faux succulent
- Faux holiday floral pick
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- DecoArt Snow-Tex
1. Remove the metal hanging top from the ornament and paint the color of your choice. You could always leave it plain, but I wanted to add a little bit of oomph to the top and pull in the colors of the faux plants.
2. Take a big dollop of Snow-Tex and smear it in the bottom of the ornament. I’ve found that it’s easiest to work with if you use your fingers or a knife.
3. Snip off the items you want to put in your terrarium. I found a faux succulent and a holiday floral pick on sale at Michael’s that were perfect.
4. The holly berries were a little too red for my color scheme so I decided to paint them a pastel-y pink that matched my ribbon. When they were dry, I arranged all of my elements into my terrarium ornament.
5. I cut off 8-9″ of my pink ribbon and tied it to the top of my ornament hanger.
6. For the finishing touch, I ran some cardstock through my Cricut Explore Air 2 machine to make some name cards. I used this font here.
And there you have it! This would make a great addition to your holiday tablescape and a really unique gift for your party guests to take home!
Would it be too much to have a Christmas tree full of these terrarium ornaments? A plant full of plants? Plant-ception? I don’t know, I’m rambling here.
What does your holiday tablescape look like?
