DIY Aztec Sand Centerpieces

We’re always up for a good DIY, especially when it comes from the talented mind of Candice from Your Cloud Parade. Not only did she team up with Art with Nature Design to create some beautiful floral arrangements, but we’ve also got an awesome DIY floral sand design to share! How perfect would these be lined up as a table runner or scattered around in groups for unique centerpieces?
