DIY Terrarium Enclosure and Reptile Habitat

Reptile habitat

A reptile habitat for lizards, snakes and more, carved out of foam!

By Gavin B.


I have finally finished my terrarium project.

I used Exterior Foam Coat over the entire foam work using a hopper gun I rented from Home Depot then I used dyes and Stainfast to do the coloring. I decided to glue my “rocks” directly to the plywood back with interior powergrab and glue the foam to itself with Foam Fusion.

Here’s a pictorial of how I did it.
