You’ve love these DIY moss terrarium ideas once you see them. They’re stunningly creative and feature a wide variety of themes so you won’t see two different designs that look anywhere remotely like the other.

If you’re looking for a nice hobby that’s fun to do, here are some ideas you can start with.
DIY Moss Terrarium Ideas You Can Make
Moss in a Glass
DIY moss garden terrariums are amazing because you can create them in any size that you want.
In this case you have a small glass just like any other one that you use to drink water. And, in it, you have a lovely park scene where a guy is walking his dog and comes across a few geese along the path.
Bonsai are stunning to look at because of their very unique shapes. This is a very small one with gorgeously thick aerial roots.
The moss garden underneath along with the soil and sand at the bottom create the perfect surrounding for this terrarium.

If you have a medium size shaped pitcher, you can create something like this beautiful jungle setting. It features a few rocks as well as mini coconut tree and moss surrounding it.
The shape of the jar makes this open terrarium tricky to work on since you’ll need to use tweezers and other small tools to get all the elements into their positions.
The Happy Place
Among the different designs in our DIY moss terrarium ideas, this is one that will instantly lift up your spirits.
It features a happy couple, probably in love surrounded by paradise. Maybe they’re in their honeymoon.
Or maybe, they’re found just the perfect spot to build their dream home.
Whichever the case may be, you can’t help but smile and feel happy just from looking at this terrarium project.
Moss Terrarium Night Lights
I love the idea of setting up lights just above the terrarium. The addition of overhead lights does make these closed terrariums.
And, there are many of them in identical jars.
This is an amazing way of creative stunning indoor lighting and décor for some rooms in your home.
This reminds me of happy days when I was a kid, when you just would go out with your pops and do something for an entire afternoon without a care in the world.
This moss terrarium turns a blank jar into a creek or river where father and son take a trip out to the wild to fish.
The rocks are perfectly positioned to create amazing texture, depth and different ground levels.
Cliffside Moss Terrarium
Tall, thin jars are often harder to design because you have a lot of floor space to work with. But, it also allows your imagination to go places.
This one takes us to a wonderful hillside that features amazingly beautiful rocks and moss on the top.
The sand below probably leads you to a body of water that’s outside the view of this scene. But, the combination of the different elements and the way they’re stacked makes this piece wonderful to look at.
Cat in a Jar
If you look closely, you’ll see a cat making its way around a somewhat rocky and grassy terrain.
This is another small moss terrarium that is amazingly well-composed with rocks, soil and moss to create the perfect backdrop for the small tree.
Here’s the smallest creation in our DIY moss terrarium ideas list. It is smaller than the size of your palm and sits in a container with a lid on top.
The lovely design is perfect for your office or work desk. And, you can use it instead of a snow globe or other small trinkets to decorate tabletops as well.
Do you see the hiker in this forest scene?
This hilly backdrop features a hiking trail in the forest that is filled with nature. And, the hiker is taking in everything around him.
The terrarium features a wider mouth which makes it easier to create since you can squeeze your fingers through the opening to position the different elements as well as trim the moss when needed.
This lovely DIY moss terrarium idea features an old country road that leads to a tree with some bushes to the side.
It is simple yet beautiful as the white stone path and the variegated leaves create contrasting light colors against the dark green moss.
