Glue

Sand
Directions
1. Cover in sand
DIY Everywhere
With a foam brush, cover the surface of your pot with glue. Then, dip your glue covered pot right into a bowl of sand. Spin it around so that you get all the sides evenly.
2. Smooth the sand surface

Now it's time to smooth it all out. Take a flat knife like a butter or cheese knife and use it to pat the sand into the surface in a nice, even manner. Use the sharp side of the knife to remove any excess sand from the inside as well.
3. Wrap with ribbon and shells

Add a bit of design flare by hot-glueing some ribbon to the top of your sandy pots. We love the blues because they go with the beach theme, and you can even glue on some pretty little shells, too!
