Easy winter terrarium update

I love using decor I already have at the holidays. Items like terrariums are fun because they are so easy to transition. I made an easy winter terrarium just by swapping in a few small items. Since we are in a smaller home, I like decor items that can do double duty through the holidays.I found this terrarium a while ago, but they are kind of all over now. I have an affliate link at the end of the post for a very similar one on Amazon if you are interested! I like the gold and glass and thought it would look pretty with a snowy scene in it.

Now, before you go and think I am so amazing with that little succulent, and that it’s still alive in there, I will fess up that’s is very easy to keep a faux plant alive.

And easy to store!I tossed everything inside a plastic bag to make a return appearance when the holiday decor is put away. For now, it’s stuffed in a drawer and I will probably forget which one when I am looking for it later, because that’s how I roll.

Boxwood in winter terrarium

To transition the winter terrarium, I used Epsom salt as snow. It has a really nice sparkle and looks very “snowy”. I also like that it can go back in the bag when I am done with it for a future use.

And added a few springs of boxwood from the yard with a few small frosted berries.

That’s it!

It makes a nice, little decor statement with out too much effort or expense! I like sometimes to have things that aren’t too expensive. Like these thrift store Santa’s that got a makeover.

I added a few small gold mercury glass ornaments (I love mercury glass!) and sprinkled a little faux snow around the bottom to give it a wintery feel!

I love easy decorating! You can find similar terrariums here if you want to make your own.

  1. Brilliant…Epsom salt! I will definitely give this a try. I kept looking at your fake snow and wondering what brand you were using and never would I have guessed it was Epsom salt. My late grandmother used Epsom salt all the time but for more medicinal purposes rather than décor purposes. ha!!
