I recently made these fall terrariums for Oriental Trading’s Fun365.com. One of my favorite parts of fall is exploring outside with my daughters. We love to bring home little nature treasures with us – sweet little acorns, colorful leaves, or a perfect pine cone. Here’s a fun way to show off the treasures from your fall nature walk. Create a little “fall terrarium” using small glass jars, colorful layers of sand as the base, and your favorite fall treasures. I mixed in a few gilded pumpkins and mini fall leaves too!
The options for these colorful fall terrariums are really endless depending on what you have on hand. To make the pretty sand art bases, I used this fall colored sand with some gold glitter sand mixed in (because you can’t go wrong with a little touch of gold)! Stella and Hazel helped me make the little arrangements on the top of the sand. They added in a couple acorns they had found outside.
Feathers also make a great addition to these terrariums!
I arranged my set of three jars on a flat basket and varied their height by adding a stack of books. I sprinkled some more leaves, pinecones, and gourds around the base for a pretty fall centerpiece that I keep on our kitchen table.
This set of three jars is perfect for creating different little terrarium scenes for holidays throughout the year! Don’t miss my halloween terrariums, succulent terrariums, and Easter terrarium ideas using these jars!
