Make a Reclaimed Lamp Terrarium

Looking for a cool way to reuse that old hanging lantern taking up space in your garage? How about create a terrarium out of it!

Materials you’ll need:
Reclaimed hanging lantern
Potting soil
Rocks
Succulent plants

Tools you’ll need:
Pliers
Screwdriver

Instructions:
Remove hardware from a glass hanging lantern. Fill with rocks, potting soil, arrange succulents. Not only do the paned panels recall the look of traditional terrariums, but the piece also includes a convenient door — originally for changing light bulbs — which is perfect for the occasional rearrangement of the plants and rocks.
