Disclaimer: Removing sand from any of Bermuda’s beaches without a permit is illegal. Collect sand lawfully either by obtaining a permit or purchasing bottled Bermuda sand from local souvenir shops.
Before you begin any of these do-it-yourself projects, make sure you rinse sand thoroughly to remove any salt or impurities.
What you will need:
- Three cylindrical glass vases of different heights
- Pink sand
- Round stickers, two inches in diameter
- Two floating candles
- Half a dozen long-stemmed pale pink roses
- Using glue, cover one vase in pink sand three-quarters of the way up the glass. (We painted the glue on with a paintbrush for even application and then rolled vase around in the sand.) When sand has dried, fill vase with water parallel to the sand line. Place roses in vase.
- Cover the second and third vases in round stickers, arranging in desired pattern. Next, cover both vases completely in pink sand. When vases are dry, remove stickers to reveal a polka-dot pattern. Fill both vases with water. Float lighted candles in both vases.
- Arrange all three vases so that the first vase with the roses is in the centre and the polka-dotted vases are on either side.
