One of the best things about living in New Jersey is the beaches. There is no better place to spend the afternoon. Where I live there are two types of beaches. There are the ones with all of the attractions: boardwalks, games, rides and countless places to eat. Then, there are the off-the-beaten-path beaches- the ones that are serene, natural, and untouched. The common traits to almost all of the beaches are the large protective sand dunes. These dunes are essential in protecting the beaches from erosion. While serving their purpose, they're also one of the more interesting and beautiful parts of the beach.
I wanted to create a terrarium that would bring a little bit of the "beach" into my home. This next project does just that. I used air plants to mimic the look of natural beach grasses. I also added sea glass, a few seashells and even a tiny message in a bottle! Keep reading to see how I made this fun and decorative beach dune terrarium.
