Technically, this isn’t a terrarium. However “Beach Bum Terrarium” (Say it out loud.) has a nicer ring than “Beach Bum Tabletop Garden.” Right?
You probably don’t need a tutorial to put together a little garden, but I’m going to give you one anyway since this is such a cute project. As you’re sure to notice, this short tutorial is a lot like the one for my Tabletop Cactus Garden, but this time I’m using succulents.
This project was inspired by these model train people figures I found online. (You can find them here.)
The people are wearing bathing suits, bikinis, and Speedos. I love a touch of quirky in my home decor, so I had to find a way to incorporate the figures. This tabletop garden is my weird take on the fairy gardens that are popular right now.
How to Make a Beach Bum Terrarium:
For this project, you’ll need:
- a dish or bowl
- green glass, blue glass, and natural stones
- beach bums
Start by planting your succulents in the soil.
With you’re succulents in place, create a beach with the sand and an ocean with the colored glass stones.
Finally, insert some beach bums to enjoy this little paradise you created for them.
I told you that you didn’t need a tutorial. (But aren’t you happy I gave you one anyway?)
This adorable terrarium is the perfect decor item for this time of year. Use it to welcome the warmer weather and to escape to the beach in your mind. Aah, the surf and the sand!
Very nice. This made me smile!
This is the cutest idea! I think I could even keep something like this alive – as long as my cat didn’t eat it. Love it!
Adorable! Makes me smile – you always have such wonderful ideas!
So much fun. I liked the tutorial and will add this to fun projects for the weekends 🙂
