My daughter has been wanting to make a succulent terrarium, but she has very limited space in her bedroom.
She’s been on the lookout for a cute small size container, and I found the perfect one!
I was in a thrift store a few days ago and spotted the most adorable single serving coffee pot.
She loves coffee with a passion, so I knew this would make the perfect container for a mini succulent terrarium.
I made a video, so you can see how quick and easy it is, and included my short supply list and instructions below.
I hope you like it, and I hope she will too!
How to Make a Succulent Terrarium in a Thrift Store Find
Supplies Needed: (affiliates included for your convenience)
- Glass containers (coffee pots and glass jars with lids both work great)
- Assorted succulents (this is a great price for 20 with free shipping)
- Play sand
- Cactus potting soil
- Small decorative pebbles
- moss, if desired
How to Assemble Terrarium: (view video below)
- Remove succulents from the pots they came in and gently shake excess soil off the roots.
- Create a base layer of sand to help with drainage.
- Add a layer of cactus potting soil.
- Place succulents in container and secure with soil around them.
- Add a top layer of stones or moss.
This is one of those rare, awesome projects that only takes about 5 minutes to make.

This would be wonderful to gift for a coffee drinker. Just add a gift card or some fresh ground coffee and they’ll love it!
If you use a regular size coffee pot, you can use larger succulents, but I had to use really tiny ones.
It’s like a fairy size succulent terrarium! 🙂
So, what do you think of the adorable little coffee pot now? I’m not even a coffee drinker, and I love it!
