ACTÍVA Products Scenic Sand in rainbow colors
Plain plastic/glass ornaments
OK, This must be the simplest ornament I ever made by myself. And trust me
it is unbelievably simple but a lot of fun to do especially if you have kids.
And the DIY makes such a pretty mess. I used ACTÍVA Products Scenic Sand,
which is great to work with.
First step is to remove the caps from the ornaments.
Now cut the corner of the sand bag and pour the sand in the ornament.
If you have a funnel it is easier to pour the sand out. I just cut the corner
of the pocket really small.
Now put the cap back on the ornament and give it a nice swirl so that sand
spreads around the ornament. The scenic sand has a subtle shine - so
this way tiny particles would sparkle with the tree lights on.
To add a little punch , cut some leaves and put them inside the ornament -
You can add any little figurines or rocks to decorate.
Add the cap back on. The sand is not heavy, but as a precaution I did glue
the cap with E6000 glue just in case it comes off.
