Air plants, sand and itty-bitty furniture? We just couldn’t resist making this beach-inspired mini garden terrarium for the summer.
We recently joined Maria over on her blog, Pastels and Macarons as guest contributors. We’ve ogled Maria’s beautiful blog filled with inspiring and practical ideas for years and were thrilled to jump on board when she invited us to join her team. We’ll be sharing new crafts and home decor ideas there each month. This beach-themed DIY air plant mini garden, or terrarium, was our first project.

We should also mention that this project is very similar to our recent simple beach themed centerpiece idea. In case you missed it, here is the video tutorial:
