DIY Lightbulb Terrariums

September 30 • 2014

We’re digging the homemade terrarium trend, and we’re especially loving the idea of scattering them around your nautical wedding as some DIY decor. You could even use them as a DIY project for your bridal shower with the added bonuses of them being wedding decoration and wedding favors! However you choose to use them, you can rest easy knowing that you’re doing you’re helping reduce landfill waste AND to bring more beauty to the world. It’s a win-win for sure.
