DIY Sand Art Painted Succulent Terrariums


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.

Mason jars
Colored sand
Faux succulents
Spray paint


Step 1: Start by spray painting your succulents and letting 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!
xo, Sam

    Hi Sam!
    I really enjoyed reading and looking at the pictures on your blog post! When I was younger I got a sand art set and made many jars of layered sand, but none as pretty as yours. I always found it hard to make the sand look perfectly layered, and some how you found a way to do so. While making the sand art I never thought of adding succulents to the top of the sand. You also took it to the next level and painted the succulents to make them fun colors. I think that by adding the succulents, it really appeals to the modern generation and if you were to sell these they would sell fast. Going back to when I used to make these sand art jars I would always spill the sand everywhere. With your suggestion of using a funnel to put the sand in the jar, I am sure that now if I ever made sand art again it would look perfect just like yours. Have you ever made any other art piece with sand? If so what and how did you do it?
