Fruit Loop-Sand Bottle

My husband and i used coloured sand in our wedding ceremony and kept the huge sand art bottle in our closet and when Tara stumbled across it the other day we decided to make her one of her own. Coloured sand is often quite expensive and hard to come by so why not make your own. Fruit Loops make great sweet smelling sand that has lovely stand out colours! Firstly divide the colours into separate containers then transfer them into a mortar and pestle and grind away until they are as fine as sand. If you don't own a mortar and pestle you can place the fruit loops into a snap lock bag and cover with a facecloth and use a small hammer to squash them. Then grab a small clear bottle and add a funnel to the top and pour in your coloured fruit loop sand, one colour at a time
Always keeping it upright and steady
Place a lid on tightly......
And you have a beautiful sand bottle decoration
