A Fabulous Festive Terrarium by Yeonhee

Continuing our video series of fabulous festive ideas, today we create the perfect alternative centrepiece with a Christmas themed terrarium. This design is endlessly versatile and can be created in your choice of festive themed decorations.

We Used

1 large glass fishbowl

40cm Adhesive Tack

1 x gold decorative branch

8 x mini gold acorns

1 x Snowman

3 x mini trees

1 x Santa

2 x Deer

2 Cups of decorative faux snow

Step One

Clean glass bowl carefully and place all of the elements into the glass bowl to decide on the placement before you use the adhesive tack to stick elements into place.

Step Two

Cut decorative gold branch to fit glass bowl. Attach gold acorns in clusters on the branch.

Step Three

Add 3 cm of adhesive tack to the bottom of the branch and stick to the bottom of the glass bowl, which should be positioned towards the back of the bowl

Step Four

Add 2cm of adhesive tack to the bottom of the trees and place into the vase, using some pressure to stick them to the bottom of the vase. Be careful to leave space for additional elements

Step Five

Add Santa, snowman and deer with the adhesive tack to secure into place. Once all elements have been placed to satisfaction, check that each is secure by pressing down on each piece.

Step Six

Take a small handful of faux snow and carefully sprinkle at the bottom of the vase. Distribute the snow carefully, by slowly adding additional handfuls of show and make some mounds to added authenticity and admire your handy work
