here to hop over to design sponge and read their detailed tutorial on how to create this beautiful display. Wouldn't it look great if you added some recessed lighting in that board as well? Shiny tiny bubbles... now we're talkin'.
Or maybe a hanging display of... terrariums! Hanging glass ball terrariums! Wow - these things had me at hello. I LOVE terrariums - I've wanted to make one out of those huge wine jugs you see at the liquor store, but I've never gotten around to needing several gallons of wine all at once. Plus, how would I manage to make a terrarium after that? Maybe I should throw a party! In the meantime, these glass ball terrariums are perfect. They are big enough to hold a few cute plants, and small enough to not dominate the room. They make great accents that would go nicely in any (or every) room. I've pulled up a few examples, in case you haven't seen them around. Here's one from Butter Home:
If plants aren't your thing, here's another cute idea: sand and rocks. I also thought of candles, but then a friend of mine said he used candles in them, and they broke one by one, sadly crashing to the ground. Yikes! They're affordable but not that affordable. So, I guess no candles...
These are from Mr. Sparrow, and have a less manicured look, which is also very nice.
