DIY: Coffee pot terrarium

Transform an old coffee pot into a beautiful indoor garden

Fish tanks, light bulbs, coffee tables… when it comes to inventive ways to create a terrarium, there really is no end to the possibilities. So long as it’s made of glass and has an opening big enough for your plants to fit through, you can’t go wrong.

Ticking both of those boxes nicely is a good old-fashioned coffee pot. The perfect gift for a coffee lover, we love this idea from A Charming Project. Inspired by the blogger’s grandmother and her love of coffee, this whimsical idea looks great and is really simple to make.
