Ever heard the phrase “put a bird on it?” (Love you, Portlandia!) Well, around here we say, “Put it in a terrarium.”

The word “terrarium” may sound fancy, but really, it’s just a glass jar that allows you to get creative and add some whimsical magic to any room with almost zero effort.

Here’s how to use a $20 terrarium all year long:

Spring

Spring means pastel colors and fresh flowers. Keep it simple, and place a bouquet and vase inside of a terrarium. We added some simple geodes for visual interest – have fun with it! These simple terrariums are the perfect décor additions to any spot you avoided during the winter like a porch or sunroom.

Summer

For summer, we went classic and followed these tips to fill the terrarium with hard-to-kill succulents. To add a little whimsy, add plastic toys or Legos to your green masterpiece.

Autumn

When we think autumn terrarium, we think Thanksgiving table centerpiece. Impress your guests with a few simple pinecones and a strand of flexible lights. If you want to take the centerpiece up a notch, add paint and glitter to your pinecones before placing them in the terrarium.

Winter

To create a picturesque winter terrarium, go white! Add a bouquet of white flowers in a white vase, and include some flexible twinkle lights to add some holiday sparkle. A winter terrarium makes for a beautiful addition to any room.
