DIY Crystal Terrarium

Terrariums can make any room feel spacious. From the fresh soil to the shiny quartz, each layer of this crystal terrarium is a testament to the beauty of nature.

What you'll need: 

  • Glass jar 
  • Sheet moss 
  • Potting soil
  • Activated carbon 
  • Stones
  • Quartz crystal 

Directions: 

STEP 1

Line the bottom of the jar with activated carbon, which can be found at your local pet store. Sprinkle a thin layer of dirt for a more camouflaged effect. 

STEP 2 

Stack your desired amount of rocks. We chose river rocks to match the natural simplicity of the crystal.  

STEP 3

Gently begin to flatten a thin layer of moss in preparation for the potting soil. Don't use too much, as you'll be adding more for the final layer of your terrarium. 

STEP 4

Add a layer of potting soil to the mix. Press down gently. 

STEP 5

Begin to insert the rest of your moss into the jar. Stack the moss higher to one side in order to prop up the crystal. 

STEP 6

Make a little nest for your crystal to sit in. 

STEP 7

Position your crystal near the sunlight for extra sparkle.  

Alternative option: For a more greener look, use reindeer moss for the last layer instead.
