To DIY For - How to make a Terrarium

Making your own gifts lets you cherry-pick sustainable materials and there’s something about handmade that sings thoughtfulness. That’s why the City of Sydney’s Green Villages team have created a trio of DIY videos with step-by-step downloadable instructions with a little help from their friends at Etsy.com - the world’s most vibrant handmade marketplace.

Miniature greenhouses are little easy-to-care-for eco-systems that, in closed containers, are great for growing humidity-loving plants such as ferns and mosses. Open containers on the other hand, are great for succulents and cacti. See the clip above for a step-by-step guide to making a terrarium.
