Hello all of you lovely readers of Pastels and Macarons! This is Jelica from the blog A Pretty Fix where I share affordable style, crafts and DIY options for the modern, eclectic home.  Today, I’m popping in to share this easy-breezy, 5-minute faux succulent terrarium that’ll add a fresh and stylish touch to any part of your home.

This craft was incredibly simple to make. It came together in no time using ‘leftovers’ from a previous home project. If you are a crafter or DIY’er, then you probably know what I mean. My craft area of the basement is a storehouse of items left over from other DIY’s, including misshapen felt, bits of yarn, half-used glue sticks, partially cut craft paper, rags of dried paint, and…well, you get the idea. And then there are those ‘mystery’ piles that have yet to be sorted 😉 Some bits remain there for weeks; others for several months. You just never know when that next craft inspiration will come 🙂

In the case of this succulent terrarium, the leftovers – faux succulents – barely hit the floor before I knew precisely what I’d be using them for next. And it came together in a flash!

So, if quick and easy is your thing, then you will love today’s tutorial!

A geometric glass or mason jar with some sand as your base is the perfect foundation for your faux succulent terrarium.
