College-Themed Designs Using Water Beads

Water beads in college colors add a great decorative touch to a college dorm room or apartment. Select water beads in the college colors and soak them for 5-6 hours or overnight. Use a mug that is plain or decorated with your school motif. Layer the water beads or mix them together.

To make it even better add some lucky bamboo. The legend is that it brings good luck. Lucky bamboo works great with water beads and grows well in low light. Keep the water beads hydrated. The roots should be in contact with water. It is easiest to fill the mug with about 2 inches of hydrated beads first. Wash the dirt or rocks off the roots of your plant. Place the plant in the mug. Now fill your mug with the rest of the beads. Add additional water to let your bamboo get off to a good start. Continue to add water as needed.

Just fill two mugs with water beads in school colors or a lovely accent color for a touch of home and add lucky bamboo or fresh flowers. This is a great way to add color to the room. Bookends are perfect for your home or office. Select a vase that has a firm flat bottom. A square or tall rectangle vase would work great.
