Want to Make a Terrarium? Here's How

Terrariums are having a moment and with good reason. A room simply isn't complete without the greenery of plants and the color pops of foliage and florals. They truly have the power to transform a room beyond mere aesthetic styling. And science agrees. A study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology found that people who work in an office setting with plants and windows have a higher capacity for attention (among other benefits) compared to those without access to nature. 

There are many benefits to bringing greenery indoors, and terrariums are a great place to start. The good news is you don't need to be a licensed botanist to make your own. In fact, you don't even need to have a green thumb, thanks to our handy guide. Whether you're hosting a party and want an activity to entertain your guests, or you just want to personalize your desk, you can't go wrong with a terrarium. Follow the steps below to get started.
