ASSEMBLING THE TERRARIUM ROOF:

5. Apply 5” strips of hook tape to each short side of the four wood triangles. Note that you can paint the wood triangles the same color as the terrarium before adding the hook strips. For this project, the triangles were painted afterwards (See image below)

6. Add two strips of loop tape along the 5” back edges of all four 5” x 8” frames (See image below)

7. Press two frames onto the sides of two wood triangles to make a roof shape. Note that there will be an opening at the top of the “roof” for taller plants to pass through as they grow. Repeat to assemble the second “roof” (See image below)

ADDING THE PLANTS AND ROOF TO FRAME:

8. Carefully place the rectangular sides of the terrarium over your selection of potted plants (See image below)


9. Rest the two roof elements on top, leaving a space in the middle to complete the terrarium (See image below)
