These sand terrariums are a perfect pairing of a craft you loved as a kid combined with painted succulents! It’s really easy to do with any colors.
Skills Required: None. Even if you’ve never crafted before, you’ll be able to make these quite easily. My only advice is to use several thin coats of spray paint; don’t heavy hand it. The rest is simple!
I am so excited to share today’s project with you! This fun and springy project is a combo of old and new – sand art (one of my favorite crafts from childhood) and painted succulents (which are a new trend I have been seeing).
This project is so easy, fun, colorful, and adaptable. These DIY sand art and painted succulent terrariums will look so cute as a springy centerpiece, or just to brighten your counters or desk. Here is how I made them.
Painted Succulents in a Jar
Gather These Supplies
- Mason jars
- Colored sand
- Faux succulents
- Spray paint
Before getting started, make sure to thoroughly clean the jars. You can use either mild soap and water or rubbing alcohol and cotton balls. The goal is to get rid of handprints and residue so that your jars look awesome on the shelf!
Step 1: Start by spray painting your succulents. Let them dry completely.
Step 2: Create your sand art by adding your sand to the jars, alternating colors and playing with designs. A funnel and scoop of some kind come in really handy here.
Step 3: Place your succulent in the sand.
I hope you love them as much as I do! And be sure to visit us as we blog about style, food, and the things we love over at the Pretty Life Girls. I’d also love for you to visit these other craft ideas:
