Beach Lovers Terrarium...

This would have to be the most effective table top DIY ever!
In 10 minutes a plain glass fishbowl vase
 visuals into a tropical beach scene.

I love this so much!

But then I am a bit of a sucker for beach themed styling.

A glass fishbowl

(this one is from KMart - cost $10)

White sand
(I used 1/2 a bag of aquarium sand - cost $19.97 and still have have a bag left for another project.)

Air Plant
I had this already but they cost about $12 to buy

Crystal Rock
The quartz I had - (found on top of Takaka Hill in Golden Bay, New Zealand)
 Malachite rock - $12 on TradeMe
Beach found.

Put white sand in the base of the fish bowl.

Position rocks, air plant and shell into desired position.

I'm totally crushing on Malachite rock...

with those gorgeous green and aqua colours.

In love with...
the beach...
interesting rocks ?

Then this easy to create Beach Lovers Terrarium is for you.
It's also a superb 'Beach lovers' Christmas gift idea too.

  1. Hi Tracy Lee, What a lovely beach terrarium! So simple but so pretty! Thanks for sharing the instructions and inspiration! Blessings, Janet

  2. This is such a nice idea! Could try something similar with my seaside goodies...
    Have a nice weekend,

  3. That's a really lovely idea Tracey Lee and air plants are always a winner, low maintenance and so pretty too. Thank you so much for sharing

  4. I have bags of rocks, shells and driftwood that I have collected from all our beach and mountain trips. This is a great way from me to get these little gems of mine out of their bag and displayed. I think I'll make one for my office to help me see through the winter knowing that beach days are ahead lol xo
