Once you've gathered all of the materials you need for your DIY geometric terrarium and chosen your container, you're ready to begin.

You’ll begin by cutting down a block of green floral foam so it’s about a half an inch high and fits inside of your geometric glass terrarium you've chose for this project. You'll want to make it slightly smaller than your terrarium opening so it still fits inside once you've added your additional elements.

Once you've cut the foam to fit, spread glue across the top of the foam.
With the glue in place, you can begin tearing off sections of the moss and applying them to the foam.

Then clip off smaller sections of flowers from your faux flower stem and position them around and in between the moss. Press the stems into the floral foam to help keep them in place.
Now glue on some of the orchid bark as desired. Repeat this process with more moss, flowers and bark, adding them along both the top and sides of the floral foam. Add more glue as needed to hold your elements in place.

Continue with this process until you've covered the entire foam block.
Continue with this process until you've covered the entire foam block.
If desired you can also glue rocks as well to the top of the arrangement.

Once you are satisfied with the arrangement, allow the glue to dry.
Once the glue on the arrangement for your DIY geometric terrarium has dried, place some glue on the bottom of the terrarium. Now add the the floral and moss arrangement inside the terrarium on top of the glue, gently pressing it into place.

To complete your DIY geometric terrarium, add a mix of orchid bark and rocks around the arrangement in the bottom of the terrarium. You'll use these to surround the foam block of your moss and floral arrangement and fill in any gaps.

I recommend using a skewer or a chopstick to move rocks and bark into empty spaces and desired locations.
Once you have your DIY geometric terrarium to your liking, use glass cleaner and a clean cloth to clean up any fingerprints, debris or glue that may have gotten onto the glass of your new terrarium.
And that’s it! Your DIY geometric terrarium is complete and ready to refresh a new space in your home!
