DIY Terrarium

I've been loving trending terrariums floating around on my favorite blogs lately, so I couldn't resist making my own. While I would've loved to pick up a gorgeous kit from Score+Solder, I was able to pick up the materials for a quarter of the price.

What You'll Need:
Activated Charcoal (also called activated carbon, you can find it in the aquarium section of pet stores)
Planter Rocks
Cactus Soil (I used regular potting soil, I'll let you know how it goes!)
Succulent Plants
A Glass Bowl or Container (ours is a lantern from Ikea)

The set up is simple. Charcoal layered on the bottom, rocks, soil with plants, then another layer of rocks on the top for looks. And voila! A terrarium.
