Today Laura from Finding Home is sharing with us how to make a beach terrarium! We are so glad to have her here with us today At The Picket Fence!
Greetings kind readers of At the Picket Fence! My name is Laura and I blog at Finding Home. I am so thankful that Vanessa and Heather were kind enough to invite me to be here today – thank you ladies! Today, I thought I would share a really simple project to bring the beach right into your home decor- an easy beach terrarium.
Summer seems to be so guided by when kids go back to school. Here in the NY, our girls are not going back to school till after labor day – while some of you are already gearing up to head back. So, if you are like me and you are patiently waiting for your beach vacation and need a little bit of “beach” right now, or if you want to display your memories and treasures from a vacation already enjoyed – this project is perfect!
Simply find your favorite jar, with or without a cover, fill with sand found at a craft store (or your favorite destination) and begin layering in your treasures.
See, I told you it was easy! A simple way to store your treasures or bring memories (or anticipation!) into your home. I used a mixture of coral, starfish, sea glass, sand dollars and shells –but it is all a personal preference.
And I have put it all together as a display on our living room coffee table. All of the sea glass in the mason jar was found on Long Beach Island, NJ. I am very particular, if it is found in another location – it is stored in a different jar! I am hoping to come home this year with a whole new jar as we are heading to North Carolina for the first time.
If you would like another way to create a beach inspired display in your home, you can also visit here to see my beach mantel.
Thanks so much for letting me stop by and share with you how to make a beach terrarium and I wish all of the At The Picket Fence readers a fabulous summer!

What a super cute project and easy way to add some summer fun 🙂 Sharing on FB and pinning of course
LOVE this project! I am so sad that summer is fading fast and this is the perfect way to make it last just a little longer!
Very pretty! I had wanted to make one this year and ended up putting it all in a bowl and being done with it. (Thought it said “Bench Terrarium” when I first saw this. I didn’t know what a bench terrarium was but clicked anyway.)
So pretty…love this idea! Love her pretty summer mantel too!
Love this ….so pretty and perfect for summer!
What is the size of the pretty jar you set on your living coffee table, the third one [real big] down, with no lid? It is full of shells, starfish and is so great for this summer!

You genuinely can make your baits really seriously enhanced in every way to be detectable as easily as possible and
as active in water as possible, to highlight your
baits to fish senses. (AND “FLAVOUR, FEEDING TRIGGERS AND CHEMORECEPTION SECRETS”) SEE:.
Of course, lots of methods have evolved to try to avoid
spooking fish out of your swim or even stop them from stopping feeding in the possible case of
some line shy fish, and having them leave your swim.
