Geodesic Growing

A geometric terrarium gives an added dimension when displaying natural items. This metal and glass terrarium has a silver finish.

Artistic Creations

Create a gallery wall of small glass terrariums, using the diamond, triangle and pyramid vases sold by Copper & Torch. Glass artist Lindsay Troutman also hand-crafts terrariums in cube, square and rectangle shapes.

Lid Lifter

Scrollwork gives delicate details to a tabletop terrarium, priced for under $100 on Wayfair.com. Open the hinged wrought iron door to arrange plants and other tiny items.

Pyramid Power

Fir wood in a gray finish makes these terrariums pretty as a picture, even when empty. Create a miniature garden landscape with this set of three terrariums.

Coastal Cloche

A rope handle adds a nautical element to this cloche, on a wood stand. The glass dome is wide enough to encapsulate a couple of mini containers and decorative items (such as a piece of driftwood).

Wired for Sight

This two-piece terrarium set could fit nicely into French country decor or a home with rustic elements, thanks to the wire mesh construction. There's room to display and grow herbs and flowers within the wood terrariums with small jute handles.

Recycled Cylinder

A recycled glass wine bottle is the foundation of this desktop terrarium. The kit also includes various mosses, bamboo chopstick planting "tools" and growing medium.

Antique Inspiration

The Wardian case dates back to the 19th century, used to transport rare plant species. This rectangular metal terrarium is inspired by the Wardian case, with a vaulted top and arched lines.

Window Dressing

Cursive writing may be a lost art, but it adds a quaint touch to these metal terrariums. The two-piece set has one small and one large greenhouse, enabling you to create a miniature garden grouping.

Miniature Message

You may fall in love with this terrarium, since it already comes assembled with moss, rocks and a thoughtful miniature figurine. The fun glass terrarium could be a whimsical gift for someone who loves nature.

Cute Conservatory

If you have room, use a large-scale piece to brighten up a space and serve as a terrarium. The detailing on the panels and roof give a Gothic look to this classic English conservatory.

Leafy Landscape

For terrarium novices, some kits come with the supplies to start creating a tabletop terrarium for yourself or to give to others. This DIY terrarium kit has a recycled glass globe along with moss, gravel, stones, terrarium soil, planting mix and charcoal, which means you just need to add plants and other tiny treasures.
