DIY: Winter Wonderland Terrarium

I purchased this terrarium months ago with the intention of creating a succulent arrangement for my coffee table, however that never really happened and I realized its purpose was better served this holiday season as a winter wonderland terrarium–perfect for my holiday tablescape!  To recreate this look is incredibly easy and takes less than a few minutes!


  • Terrarium [apothecary jar, mason jar, etc…whatever you have!]
  • Fake snow
  • Tiny deer
  • Bottle brush trees
  • Cardboard
  • Hot glue + glue gun


I cut some cardboard the size of the opening of the terrarium and then hot glued my deer and trees into place.  This gives them a bit of height and ensures that they won’t get knocked over!  Place your cardboard + figurines into the terrarium and then fill with fake snow!  Simple as that!


I’ve found some great terrarium options and posted them below, so that you can ‘shop the look!’  How are you decorating your table for the holidays? I’d love to see what you’re creating!
