It’s no secret that we’re big fans of upcycling here at the Etsy Blog—from highlighting the way makers give new life to sentimental objects to showing what you can do with a busted bike tube, some vintage tins or a bit of cardboard. Today we’re digging deep into our How-Tuesday archive to bring back one of our favorite spring recycling projects: how to make a terrarium.
In addition to being a simple way to put an old glass container to good use, terrariums also offer a low maintenance, high-impact way to bring the outdoors into your home or workspace. Bonus: They make a great gift! Check out the video above to see the five-step process for making your own terrarium, and click here for step-by-step directions.
