Do you love the aesthetics of Halloween and creepy cemeteries, but won't willingly walk into an actual graveyard yourself? Then this DIY is for you! This DIY is inspired by the spooky aesthetic of cemeteries and doubles as a lovely, living house decoration, depending on whether or not live plants are used! Terrariums are a beautiful way to decorate an empty space, so spice up your terrarium for Halloween by turning it into a ceme-terrarium with a few easy steps!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
You can pick decorations to your pleasure, but the main things you will need are the bowl, the moss and the pebbles.
-A glass bowl shaped to your choosing
-Small rocks or pebbles
-Halloween Figurines (we used small gravestones)
-black construction paper (optional; for bats)
-string (optional; for bats)
-Solid moss decorations (optional)
Place the rocks in your glass bowl to create a layer on the bottom
Create another layer on top of the rocks with the moss
Place the solid moss decorations in the bowl (optional)
If you are going to add a little tree like we did, we found that taping it to one of the hard moss pieces made it able to stand up in the bowl. You could use a hot glue guns or other ways as well! Place the twig upright into the bowl.
Next, we drew small bats on construction paper (which took a couple times to get perfect!) and cut them out with the scissors.
Measure the thread to the length you’d like. Use glue or a small piece of tape to attach the thread to the bat. Then, tie them to the “branches” of the “tree” with the string, and cut off any excess string.
Place the small gravestone figurines into the bowl.
