Boho Wedding Feature-How to Make a Terrarium Centerpiece-

There's nothing that brings me more joy than little tiny succulents of various shades of greens and purples. I remember my first cactus plant when I was 5 years old, I loved looking at it's texture while the sun illuminated it's prickles and bumps. Some things really haven't changed because I am still in love with these little darlings. I even had succulents in my bouquet for my own wedding. For my brides that need an idea for a simple bohemian center piece under $40, follow my 6 easy steps below to create a charming mini Terrarium for your wedding guest tables!

How to make a terrarium: 

1. Add about a cup of pebbles to the bottom of your terrarium glass. 

2. Put topsoil on top of the pebbles and press down with a spoon. 

3. Use your fingers to add a hole for each succulent. 

4. Press the soil with the bottom of a spoon, making sure that no roots are exposed and that you get rid of the air bubbles. 

5. Finally, add Moss or other embellishments to your terrarium. 

6. Give it a few light spritzes of water.
