DIY It - Neon Footed Terrariums

Sometimes two elements come together almost magically to make an awesome decor piece. Like the universe demanded they be together (melodrama much?). That's how I feel about these fabulous neon footed terrariums. I originally made these terrarium bowls for a different project, but then my friend grabbed a few bags of neon pink and orange aquarium rocks for me on her recent trip to the pet store (she knows me too well!), and I knew just what to do with them.

I think these would be great just about anywhere: on a shelf, on a desk at work, a kitchen counter, even in a bathroom.  They're pretty versatile.

Begin by painting the wood rounds in your choice of acrylic paint color and let them dry. Then, use your gold paint pen to paint the rim of the terrarium bowl.

Next, use your glue to adhere the wood round to the bottom of the terrarium and let it cure overnight.

 Not too difficult eh? Now, simply fill the terrarium 1/3 of the way with your aquarium gravel and a few colorful faux succulents or even real air plants.

Which color combo is your favorite? I'm partial to the hot pink and turquoise. Be sure to check back next week when I share where these neon lovelies are hanging out in my newly restyled built-ins.
