This month’s craft is a hanging terrarium! I was so stoked to see this project! These are the instructions that were included. I like that every step is illustrated with a photo! That’s so helpful!

These supplies were provided in my box. From home, I only had to supply my own ruler and a bit of tape.

My first step was to knot the ropes. This is the completed hanger. The process for knotting the ropes was very clearly described, so I just followed along exactly. I taped the initial (top) knot to the table and made knots at the measurements indicated in the instructions.

The next part was making the terrarium itself. First, I poured in all the sand and added some rocks.

Then I added several different types of moss and inserted the “succulents”. I was a little disappointed that the succulents are plastic, but I’m guessing real succulents don’t mail very well. I also think they look very realistic. I just kept repositioning everything until I was happy with the layout. I like that it has a kind of wild look.

This is my completed hanging terrarium, hanging in my open staircase! I just love it! The pictures really don’t do it justice! It’s one of the best things I’ve created in a long time.

Verdict: I am a huge fan of Adults & Crafts! I absolutely loved this month’s project, both creating it and having it in my home. It was pretty easy to complete, and it’s just beautiful. The thing I probably love most about Adults & Crafts is that, yes, the projects have a very adult feel to them. It makes me a feel like a real maker!

In terms of value, I know Adults & Crafts is a little steeper than most other crafting subscriptions, but I think it’s completely worth it. I have mentioned before what a big value it is to me to save the time and effort of material sourcing, and the instruction provides value also. With Adults & Crafts, I usually love the project selection, too, and I always wind up with a completed craft I would gladly pay $39 for!

What do you think of Adults & Crafts?

    • Thanks Jennifer!

  1. Real succulents actually do mail well. You get them in Miroja, which I used to subscribe to, and also in The Desert Box, which I currently subscribe to. You can also order them from third party sellers on Amazon.

  2. Miroja sends little plants. I think Liz did the review this month that included a succulent. I think for $45 they could have included a live plant instead of plastic. That would be a deal breaker for me

    • It would actually be about $35/mo (10% off $39/mo 🙂 )

  3. Your hanging terrarium looks fantastic. I might have to attempt one of these this weekend.

    • Thanks Pamela!
