Another one is windowsill greenhouse made of skewers or twigs and a clear see-through plastic bag. Make a frame by using skewers or twigs; you can make 3 rectangles for the frame.
Place two rectangles in a vertical position and connect them by placing the third rectangle in the middle between the 2 rectangles in a horizontal position. Cover the frame with a plastic bag, and your greenhouse is ready.
Wooden Mini Greenhouse
If you have more time and skills on a DIY project, you can try this mini indoor greenhouse design. You can use some repurposed wood pieces, or an old picture frame to construct the base. Do it the way they construct an aquarium but without the bottom part. You can use glue or nails to put the wooden pieces together.
Once the base part is done, you can construct the roof by putting together wooden pieces or a picture frame so it will look like a rooftop. Attach the roof to the base construction with glue, and finally, add clear vinyl around the base.
Indoor Greenhouse with Light
If you need a more sophisticated indoor greenhouse design, you can build a wooden rack and hang light on top of it, and then you can place your plants underneath the light.
There’s also a simple way to do this, instead of building a rack from scratch, you can utilize unused space in one of your rack shelves, add a light on the top of the space that you want to use, and place your plants underneath it.
Happy planting with the cute DIY mini indoor greenhouse design ideas!
