Dollar Store Terrarium

Have you heard about the newest craze called Plant 'n Sip?  It's the same notion as Paint 'n Sip but instead of painting, you plant.  I heard about it and just had to try my hand at it just in case I decide to lead a Plant 'n Sip class at work one of these days!
Off to the Dollar Tree I went!  They have the perfect little round glass bowls in varying sizes.  I happened to have a larger one already but I also picked up a small one. 
I also had some succulents in my office that needed a better home.  However, the Dollar Tree has faux succulents if you don't want to have to take care of the real ones.  I bought one of those as well. 
I bought a bag of rocks and my Dollar Tree even has potting soil so I picked up a bag of that for my real succulents.  You could also use the glass marbles in different colors for this if you would like! 
I came back to my office and got started.  I placed some rocks in the bottom and then added some potting soil.  I then transplanted my succulents into the new soil and added a few rocks around the edge.  Now the corner of my desk has a perfect little terrarium that I just love! 
As for the fake succulent that I bought...well, I made a tiny little terrarium for my boss.  She is the worst at keeping plants alive so this will be perfect for her! 
I am pretty good at keeping plants alive, but I think I may need to go back to the Dollar Tree and buy some more of these faux succulents so I can make more terrariums!  Wouldn't they look so cute in a big mason jar?! 
I think I am definitely going to have to make a Plant 'n Sip class happen soon!
