DIY Dollar Store Pottery Barn Inspired Terrarium!

DIY Dollar Store Pottery Barn Inspired Terrarium! | DIY Joy Projects and Crafts Ideas

This terrarium goes for $300 online and it costs under $10 to make!  She bought the supplies at the Dollar Store! I can’t believe she made this beautiful terrarium out of cheap picture frames!  I’m amazed!  It has a vintage antique look and the greenery against the white frames really sets the plants off!


I just had to make one of these for myself and it turned out great.  I always wanted a window box over my kitchen sink, but with this terrarium I can have a close second and I really enjoy it where I have it.  I put several small plants in mine and it’s just like having a window box, but you get to move this one where ever you want it displayed!
