Make fun shapes with Style Tech Craft vinyl as a mask and them have fun with different colors of sand. Use these decorate sand art jars for vases, utensil holders, or a simple votive. These would also make fun wedding, birthday, or graduation decor as you can make them any color you wish by just changing up the color of the sand.
