Sand Art Is A Great Way To Decorate Your Home

November 3, 2015 | By | Reply More

I find it absolutely amazing how beautiful a bit of colored sand in a glass container can look when it is layered in different patterns. Table decor like this is very popular at beach themed weddings, but i can tell you now that i don’t need to get married to display something like this in my home!

There is really not much to creating a beautiful piece of art like these yourself – you just need to pick the colors of sand that you want to work with, have a glass jar or vase handy that you like, and get creative! The only thing  you have to be careful with is to try and not mix the colors up when you pour the sand. That’s it!

This rectangular vase looks very bold and stunning – i think having a thick glass adds a great modern touch to it, too.

A great way to display your gorgeous piece of sand art is also if you add some plant to it, like in the pictures below. I would suggest to pick artificial succulents, as they will not need any water 🙂 and they also look kind of beachy, so you will have a complete beach sand art look! Don’t you love these?

Depending on what kind of vase or display container you use, and depending on the color of your sand, the result can be either funky, or very stylish and elegant! It is really up to you what you end up with. But I think working with sand to decorate your home is a lot of fun and not difficult at all. Of course, to stay with the beach kind of theme, you should probably pick mainly colors that will reflect that ambience – different blues, beige, sandy colors, greys and browns, yellow/green…

Make your next creative project one with sand art!
