Creative Terrarium Containers

Terrarium container suggestions. Here are a wide variety of containers you might want to use for making a terrarium. The thing about terrarium containers is that once you start thinking about them you will see ideas just about everywhere. And the supermarket is a great place to shop for unique shapes and sizes. And, I have a whole lot of projects that use very creative containers.


Apothecary Jar Terrariums

These Jars make stylish and very attractive terrariums and they are small enough for a beginner with a large mouth for easy access. A web visitor has submitted these pics of apothecary jar terrariums learn more here

A Note from Will: Wine glasses can be used to make beautful terrariums. And they are not too hard to make. You can give them away as presents. I have a tutorial on how to make them here: How to make a wine glass terrarium


Cognac glass

Riedel Vinum Cognac Glass, Set of 2 For me the Cognac Glass or Brandy Snifter is perfect for a small wine glass style terrarium. They tend to be shorter, squatter and a little bit more durable. You just have to watch the sizes. They can range from 8 ounces to 30. This one shown here is almost 30 ounces.


Glass Vase

Flower Market Clear Glass Vase


5 Gallon Glass Carboy

5 Gallon Glass Carboy If you are looking for a big and challenging terrarium container I recommend a 5 gallon glass carboy. This is what brewers use to make wine or beer in. It is very similiar to what you get when you order water for your home cooler. Can look really beautiful and can be quite challenging because you have to get the plants and seeds through the narrow mouth at the top.


Fish Bowls make good aquariums

Bubble Bowl - Hand Blown Glass


Wardian Cases - These are terrarium containers that are made of wrought iron and sheets of glass. Think of them as three dimensional stained glass objects. The glass is clear for the benefit of the plants of course! If you like this style of container I have a whole selection of them here Wardian Cases
