While we were walking around Florida, I noticed something really cool.
Air plants! I noticed them laying on the ground first and decided a storm had knocked them out of the trees. They were ALL OVER!
Since we have no such thing here in Upstate New York, I collected a few and brought them home carefully with the sea shells we found.
I found these lovely glass ornaments for displaying them on Amazon and actually ordered them the night before we left so I wouldn't have to wait long!
Since air plants only require a good dunking once a week in a glass of water and no dirt, it was pretty easy to incorporate them into a little seascape with some sand, beautiful shells we found and some coral. I also found the plants for sale on Amazon too, so you don't even have to take a trip to Florida!
I loved the rough twine they sent to hang these and decided I was going to jazz it up a bit with some beads.
Lucky for me, we have this great paper bead cutting file to use from THE CUTTING CAFE.
I chose not to wrap mine all the way and went reverse of how you would normally roll these beads making them banner beads!
I rolled them around a skewer and realized that I could also make a plant stick! Love these beads!
The key to making the bead stay together is good glue. All of these banners were brushed with shimmer modge podge.
And one last photo of my hanging terrariums. Do you see that HUGE shell in the bigger one? A bit proud of that. Spotted that on the beach and yelled MINE real loud and pushed my kids out of the way! Mostly kidding on that!
Have a great weekend!
