It has been a long and eventful last few weeks, so I missed the opportunity to photograph the sand being dyed and the cacti being planted. However, this is the end result and I love them!
My words of wisdom would be to give yourself plenty of time to play with the sand and dyes to get the colors you wanted. I ended up trying 7 different color combinations and the other four are quite different. (Which works; I plan on doing a “fire” themed change up in the fall with three of the other colors; only one won’t really be used for anything.) If you were doing this for an event, definitely get started a couple of weeks in advance.
I cannot wait to be moved and have a sunny window to display these in. 🙂
