Let’s get straight to it:

1. Build Your Own Succulent Terrarium

Succulent terrariums are beautiful and fun additions to any living space. They make great decorations for outdoor entertaining and add a little bit of nature to any room in your home.

Terrariums are on the trending edge of home décor and are extremely easy to make!


  • Terrarium
  • Small Rocks
  • Potting Mix
  • Small Succulents


  1. Place about an inch of small rocks at the bottom of your terrarium for drainage.
  2. Cover the rocks with potting mix. Stop the potting mix about an inch below the lowest point of the rim of the terrarium.
  3. Plant succulents (as many or as few as you’d like!)
  4. Feel free to add a small layer of rocks on top of the soil for aesthetic if you like.
  5. Place your new succulent terrarium garden indoors near a window or outdoors in an area that won’t take on direct rain

2. Plant a Ladder Herb Garden 

Herb Gardens are a perfect addition to any backyard space. They look great, add a bit of fragrance to your yard, and provide you with fresh herbs whenever you need them!

And another good thing about herb gardens is that you can customise them to fit your personal style. Again, they’re super easy to make in the comfort of your own home. 

See these instructions for how to make a herb garden using a ladder.


  • Wooden ladder
  • Metal buckets
  • Butcher hooks
  • Drill
  • Small rocks
  • Potting mix
  • Herbs or herb seeds


  1. Drill small hole in the bottom of your metal buckets.
  2. Add about an inch of small rocks to the bottom of the metal buckets for drainage. Make sure that the rocks are larger than the holes.
  3. Add potting mix to the buckets. Stop the potting mix about an inch below the lowest point of the top of the buckets.
  4. Transplant herbs or plant seeds in buckets.
  5. Hook butcher hooks onto the handles of the buckets and latch them onto the steps of the wooden ladder.
  6. Set up your ladder herb garden in a place where it will get plenty of sunshine.
