Today Laura from Finding Home is sharing with us how to make a beach terrarium! We are so glad to have her here with us today At The Picket Fence!
Greetings kind readers of At the Picket Fence! My name is Laura and I blog at Finding Home. I am so thankful that Vanessa and Heather were kind enough to invite me to be here today – thank you ladies! Today, I thought I would share a really simple project to bring the beach right into your home decor- an easy beach terrarium.
Summer seems to be so guided by when kids go back to school. Here in the NY, our girls are not going back to school till after labor day – while some of you are already gearing up to head back. So, if you are like me and you are patiently waiting for your beach vacation and need a little bit of “beach” right now, or if you want to display your memories and treasures from a vacation already enjoyed – this project is perfect!
Simply find your favorite jar, with or without a cover, fill with sand found at a craft store (or your favorite destination) and begin layering in your treasures.
See, I told you it was easy! A simple way to store your treasures or bring memories (or anticipation!) into your home. I used a mixture of coral, starfish, sea glass, sand dollars and shells –but it is all a personal preference.
And I have put it all together as a display on our living room coffee table. All of the sea glass in the mason jar was found on Long Beach Island, NJ. I am very particular, if it is found in another location – it is stored in a different jar! I am hoping to come home this year with a whole new jar as we are heading to North Carolina for the first time.
If you would like another way to create a beach inspired display in your home, you can also visit here to see my beach mantel.
Thanks so much for letting me stop by and share with you how to make a beach terrarium and I wish all of the At The Picket Fence readers a fabulous summer!
