This Is the Material You Need to Use for Your Next Sand Art Project
Sand art, meet your new cousin, sprinkle sand art! That’s right, we used colorful sprinkles to upgrade our ’90s sand art into a new whimsical decor piece. This DIY upgrade was actually inspired by a cute little ice cream parlor that I visited when I went to South Africa this past March. Kristin’s Kick Ass Ice Cream not only had amazing homemade ice cream in great flavors, but also had sprinkle sand art adorning their wall displays. Once I returned from my travels, I added a snapshot to my inspo board, because I knew I just had to make some of my own :)
1. Use a funnel to layer different color sprinkles into a glass jar.
2. Yup, it’s that easy :)
Grab a funnel and start layering your sprinkles! To get sprinkles at different angles, tilt the glass container as you pour the sprinkles down the funnel.
Spruce up your sprinkle sand art with some bands of glitter and a few air plants.
This scene is straight inspired from South Africa. Sprinkle art is inspired by Kristin’s, and the little felt cupcake came from Angelpie Creations.
This is a great DIY decor piece to add to your home or to spruce up a party table spread. A party themed around ice cream and sprinkles?! Sounds like I need an invite :)
Remember to place a larger sand art creation on a higher shelf to avoid it being knocked over and losing those beautiful stripes. We added some air plants on top and turned this sprinkle sand art into a terrarium. (Sound familiar? Check out our Sand Art Terrarium Kit!)
All good things come with sprinkles.
