With my daughter's wedding right around the corner, I was purchasing the sand they will be using for their ceremony and realized there are so many beautiful colors that it would be cool to make something for my house.  Who cares if I'm not getting married or didn't have a chance to have a sand ceremony (since 29 years ago, nobody ain't never heard of such a thing!)....if I want a decanter with sand in it, then I'm going to do it.

There are a number of different vendors that sell sand; one particular one I found had over 60 colors, including "sparkle" sand....ooooohh...right up my alley!  Although, you can also find some basic colors at Hobby Lobby, Michael's and JoAnn's. 

So, what do you need?  It's about as simple as you can get.  You will need a glass decanter, bowl, bottle, or whatever you want to use.....AND, sand.  Dang, how much simpler can it get?

I'm sure through thrift stores or garage sales I may have been able to find a decanter that I liked, but I had been admiring a number of styles that Hobby Lobby carries.  So being the frugal gal that I am I used my 40% off Sunday coupon to buy one I really liked.   

 I chose to use four different colors of sand and then just began pouring and tilting the decanter to get the effect that I wanted. 

This project could make fun Christmas gifts, housewarming, bridal just need to know the home decor colors, get your supplies and you're good to go!

This literally took me about 20 minutes to put together.  That included taking the pictures.
