Beach Effect Terrarium
These 2 terrariums have been sat on our roof for I don’t know how long, but long enough that they were no longer growing any plants!
I decided to give one of them a new lease of life, a Beachy Life!
They were filthy, actually, disgusting is more appt. I emptied the soil from the pots, which I have given to hubby so he can make some citronella garden candles in them, and scrapped off what ever I could, and then I left them to soak in some cleaning solution.
After a good scrub I removed the plastic windows, and used a wire sponge to remove any rust.
Eventually they were clean enough for painting.
My trusty can of spray paint came to the rescue once again,
I only needed to give the terrarium one coat of paint; already it looked much better, no pics of this, opps!
Measuring the windows, tops and fronts, I cut sheets of acetate to size and using my glue gun, secured them in place.
Using drift wood, sand, shells and some seaside themed items, I made a beach display!
You could adapt this for almost any theme!
Still not sure what to do with the other one, any ideas?!
