See what I mean? It’s almost too easy! Almost . . . ๐Ÿ˜‰

What you’ll need:

Shop supplies:

Originally I had decided to do garland over these cabinets. But as I stared at the cake stands that were already in place, I though about how beautiful and popular terrariums have been lately. And I figured, I already have fake snow and plenty of bottle brush trees . . . why not make a Christmas terrarium!

Constructing a Christmas terrarium

First, if you’re kitchen is anything like mine, above your cabinets gets a tad bit dusty . . . and really, who gets up there and dusts unless there’s a reason? To dust simply to dust doesn’t fit my personality. But give me a reason . . . like a terrarium, and I’m ready to get dirty! Or is it clean? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Place the bottle bush trees on the cake stand. Secure to the bottoms of the trees with tape if needed. Use three to five trees per stand. I loved the added dimension of using different colored trees for a little bit of sass. You can stick to traditional or go crazy with some fun colors if you want!

    Once you have all the trees in place and have made sure the lids can still fit on the top with enough clearance for your tallest tree, you’re ready for snow!

    Sprinkle the snow right over the top of your bottle brush trees. Use as much or as little as you’d like. But for me, the more you use the more winter wonderland it becomes.

    Once the snow is heavy enough to your liking, place the lid on and put the cake stand where you want it. I had two cake stands with lids, one without, and I felt the difference added good contrast!

    A few different versions

    If these are not on the top of cabinets like mine, feel free to add woodland creatures to them, or other fun accessories to make the terrariums pop! After I shared this project on Pinterest one follower make one right away, and used LED lights in hers. It was beautiful!
