We are seeing glass orb terrariums everywhere! So we decided to create a succulent bubble garden featuring a classic garden gnome. Our gnome seems to like his new home! Here’s how we made it.
How To Make A Succulent Bubble Garden
Hanging glass orb terrarium, 6” diameter
Garden gnome figurine, 2″
Red and green faux succulent, 2 1/2” diameter
Green faux succulent, 2” diameter
Green faux succulent, 3” tall
Purple silk flowers, 3/4″
Craft moss assortment
Glittered fern poke, 4”
hot glue gun & glue sticks
1. Hot glue a bed of moss in the bottom of the orb. Nestle the fern poke and the tall succulent into the moss bed toward the back center of the orb.
2. Set the two shorter succulents in the back left and right, then hot glue in place. Hot glue small clumps of lichens and moss around the base of the fern and the succulents. Snip the blooms off the purple flowers, and hot glue them here and there.
3. Perch the gnome in the center of the moss bed toward the front of the orb. Hot glue to secure. Pull off more clumps of moss and lichens, and place them around the gnome’s legs and feet. Hot glue all in place.
4. Feed the rope through the hole at the top of the orb. Then hang your delightful Succulent Bubble Garden outside for all of nature to enjoy!
You can find glass orbs and faux succulents to make your own succulent globe garden at the craft store. We’ve even found very realistic faux succulents at Dollar Tree! We think it would be fun to make three of these and hang them at different heights. Maybe put a little deer and some red and white toadstools in one. Ooh! We like that idea. We’d better get busy!
