Craft Corner: DIY Wood and Glass Air Planter

As you know, I love to DIY. I was walking through West Elm looking for a narwhal plate (I found it, plus an amazing narwhal bowl!), and saw this gorgeous wood and glass air plant terrarium. It looked stunning—with the wood and glass, it had this rustic, unaffected feel—and I could imagine it in my home.

Then I checked the price tag: $155. I was shocked. But I was also inspired. I could totally make something (DIY obsessed!!) similar for way less. So I did! Since Father's Day is right around the corner, I thought it would be awesome to create this in honor of Dad.
