diy wednesdays: terrarium party favors

by Grace Bonney

we came across a bunch of these globe vases at our local thrift store the other day and thought they would make great little terrariums to hand out to guests at our next shindig, the personalized labels were a cinch to make using colorful popsicle sticks and a set of alphabet stamps. click here for the full project and instructions or just click “read more” below.

[ps: the second episode of design by the book is next!]

here’s what you’ll need:
-small round glass vases, similar to the ones found here
-marbles or tumbled glass
-selection of small succulents
wood popsicle sticks
alphabet stamps (you can find these on amazon.com, too)
-stamp pad

1. wash the vases and add a layer of marbles or tumbled glass in the bottom.
2. take the plants out of their pots, loosen the roots and insert into your vases, adding more dirt if necessary.

3. personalize your popsicle sticks using rubber stamps or a marker.

4. water plants thoroughly and insert 1 name tag stick into each terrarium.
