Airplants + Beans DIY

In today's DIY guide we are going to learn an easy way to display airplants using a small vase and beans!😆 Tillandsia varieties are low maintenance plants that are easy to take care of. All they need is bright light and a nice spray of water once a week. They come in all sorts of shapes and colors and bloom showy flowers in bright tropical hues. This DIY is easy to create to jazz up your home or office space.

1. I wiped my glass vase clean from dust and started my first layer with the white beans. Make sure to put enough beans inside your vase to be able to differentiate the layers and colors you choose.

 2. Onto of top of the white beans I placed green lentils as my second layer. I created layers with both types of beans until I reached the rim of the vase.

Could you also use small colored rocks to plant the air plant? I love succulents and I’m impatiently waiting for warmer weather to order some more!!
