Air Plant with Layered Sand and GlitterI enjoy planting and especially decorating the home with indoor plants. My toddler asked how come he doesn't have a planter of his own creation, so I thought this would be a fun mess free little planter he could make. The outcome turned out beautifully, it also adds a nice touch of color from the colored sand and mixture of glitter!
