  • rocks (for drainage)
  • small glass fishbowl
  • soil
  • succulents
  • white sand
  • gold crystal
  • popsicle sticks
  • paint
  • metallic gold marker


  1. Put a 1” layer of rocks on the bottom of your fishbowl for drainage.
  2. Put about 6-8 tablespoons of soil into your fishbowl.
  3. Make a hole in the soil, moving soil to the sides with a spoon, or your fingers.
  4. Plant your succulent in the middle of the hole and pack soil around it so it’s sturdy. Flatten your soil layer.
  5. Add a ½” thick layer of white sand. Carefully pour it to the sides of your bowl and then spread it, so it doesn’t get stuck in your succulent.
  6. Add a layer of white pebbles and a gold crystal for a special touch.
  7. For the thank you tag, paint a popsicle stick black.
  8. Cut the bottom of one end to form a sharp point.
  9. Write your thank you message on the popsicle stick.
  10. With the pointed end down, stick your popsicle stick into the soil of your terrarium.
