This is the cutest little DIY I’ve ever made, I think! My DIY Terrarium using Ikea frames ! Think about it! It can be filled with so so many things…for fall, for X-mas…winter oh, the possibilities are endless and I love that! It’s a fun little DIY that can be used all year round and looks so darn cute! I love how easy and cheap it is to make one and did I mention that it is so cute!?
Ok, so this idea is not mine, I’ve seen similar like these and really got inspired by Emily from The Wicker House. Hers is so cute and I love how she styled it! So I thought that I really needed this in my living room and wanted to make one myself!
I had these Ikea frames at home, [no affiliate link] they come in three different sizes and I had 5 of the medium and 2 of the large ones handy! They are pretty simple looking, so I sanded them just a little bit, to give them a distressed look.
DIY Terrarium using Ikea frames
Using my hot glue gun, I quickly glued 4 of the medium sized frames together.
Then I added the last medium sized frame on top, because I wanted to make a second level. These Ikea frames come with a plastic cover, no glass front, so for the top one I used a glass that I had from another frame, I no longer needed and it fit right into this one. I wanted the second level to be able to hold something heavier.
Next came the “roof” and for that, I used the two large sized frames. Emily had a great tip by simply using duct tape to stick them together on one side, to then be able to fold the roof.
I simply folded the “roof” and placed it on top of the second level, no glueing needed as it stays in place because the two sides are a bit higher. And Voila! My DIY Terrarium using Ikea frames was done!!!
Now to the fun part! The deco! I think I could decorate this baby over and over each day, lol, I enjoy it so much! For now, I used all faux fern and succulent in little jars.
I added a thin string of led lights to it and it looks really dreamy at night….
So friends, this was my DIY Terrarium using Ikea frames and I am super happy with it! Thank you Emily for the inspi! Thank YOU for stopping by the blog and visiting, I appreciate it! Have a lovely day!
