Holiday Edible Terrariums

Add a touch of whimsy to your holidays with these entirely edible displays of wintry scenes.

Gather Your Supplies

For this craft you will need: glass apothecary jars/ assorted holiday candies/ shredded coconut/ cookie icing (prefilled tube, allows stacking of cookies)/ serrated knife/graham crackers/ sliced almonds/ pretzel sticks/ marshmallows

Let it Snow

All of these edible terrariums begin with a thick layer of shredded coconut. This is the snow.

DIY Miniature Gingerbread House

To make the house you will need the serrated knife, graham crackers, almond slices and the cookie icing. Step 1: Cut out your pieces like so. Step 2: Decorate them with the icing. Step 3: Attach the almond slices with the icing. Allow everything to dry in place for a few hours.

Add a Door

While you are waiting for the gingerbread house pieces to dry, you can adhere the door to the front of the house with the cookie icing.

Build the House

Assemble the house. Adhere the sides together with the icing. Allow it to dry in place for an hour.

Top it Off

Next add the roof one side at a time and adhere it in place with the cookie icing.

Drying Time

Allow the entire house to set and dry for a couple of hours before moving.

Set the Scene

Add the house to the center of the terrarium.

White Picket Fence

I tucked in chocolate covered snowflake shaped pretzels to form a white picket fence.

A Tiny Woodpile

Add a few pretzel rods to the side of the house to create a miniature woodpile.

Candy Trees

To make the candy trees, you will need: sour candy apple rings/ thick red licorice/ cookie Icing/ Aaserrated knife. To start, thread the licorice through the bottom of a sour apple ring.

Layer it Up

With cookie icing, adhere and stack rings of sour apples to make the tree. To make the rings smaller, simply use the knife and cut out a notch and ice it back together. Save a small wedge to top the tree.

Plant the Trees

Add the trees to the terrarium. You can also try making trees without the licorice too. I did this on the other side of the house.

Pre-made Trees

These lollipop trees are also perfect. I tucked them in the back for more foliage.

Got Mail?

Use a broken candy cane, marshmallow, a small rounded graham cracker, and candy bits to make this mailbox. Adhere it together with the cookie icing.

Stepping Stones

Round peppermints form the stepping stones to guide visitors to the entry.

Edible Snowman Terrarium

Try making a snowman on a sled with evergreen goodies. To make the wreath, use icing to adhere red chocolate candies to a sour green apple ring. Gummy evergreen trees top off the sled.

Sled Ride

To make the sled, use cookie icing to adhere two candy canes onto the side of graham crackers. Allow it to set and dry completely before putting the snowman on top.

Gifts Around The Tree

This terrarium features all store bought goodies, including this Scottie dog and chocolate gifts.

Candy Cane Tree

Add a pre-made candy cane tree to the center of the shredded coconut.

Add Gifts

Tuck in the chocolate gifts around the tree.
