2/29 | DIY Sand Art Succulent Planter


I have some great memories from my childhood of doing sand art at the fair. Recently I have seen a few amazing videos of artists on Facebook who create masterpieces out of sand art. I decided to give it a go with a little twist and made a DIY Sand Art Succulent Planter. Instead of sand, I actually used salt because it is cheaper and more easily accessible. You will definitely want to make one so here is how to do it…


You will need: small glass vase | faux succulents | table salt | Americana Acrylics in a variety of colors 


Step 1: Pour your salt out onto disposable plates. I used about a quarter cup of salt for each color. You could also use white sand but salt looks just as good and can be purchased at the grocery store. I got one large container and it cost less than a dollar.

Step 2: Add a different color of American Acrylics into each pile of salt.  Start with a small amount and add more if you want to make the color more intense.

Step 3: Mix the paint into the salt. You’re hands will get messy which I love! If you don’t like getting down and dirty, I recommend you use gloves for this part. It will take a minute or so of kneading but in no time you will have the prettiest colored “sand” ever. By using Americana Acrylics, you are able to achieve such vibrant colors.

Step 4: Layer the colored salt in the glass vase. You can definitely get creative in the step. Making layers of different heights or tilt the vase and make slanted layers.

Step 5: Stick the succulent picks into the colored salt. I recommend adding the largest one first and have the taller ones go toward the back.
