Sand Art Holiday Terrariums

Snow Globes are always a fun holiday décor idea, but I wanted to give the concept a fresh spin. As a designer I’m always on the look-out for trends + ideas…so when I came across these succulent terrariums

…my holiday DIY idea was born.  Why not merge the beautiful + simple craft of sand art with the holiday magic of bottle-brush trees and sprinkles of glittery snow?

The simple ingredients to create this holiday décor with your littles:

–        Glass vessels (you can pull from vases and jars you already have at home)

–        Colorful sand (you can find this at a local craft or hobby shop or easily purchase online)

–        Bottle-brush trees or small ornaments of gingerbread houses or snowmen (I found some hand-dyed bottle-brush trees from artists on Etsy, but you can easily find them this time of year at a variety of stores, or pull from your ornament collection)

–        Faux snow (another easy find at any craft store)

So let the holiday crafting begin. Check-out my DIY tutorial to see just how easy this holiday project can be…
