Sea glass is such a mystical element of the sea and can be found in a vast array of coastal colors – aqua blue, seafoam green, clear and frosty white (let’s just pretend “beer-bottle brown” doesn’t exist, shall we?). Ironically, this ocean gem is initially a man-made source, but when trashed into the ocean (or when there are ship wrecks), the tidal waters and waves tumble bottles, jars and other glass containers against the sand, breaking them into little soft-edged pieces of heaven.
Today’s simple sea glass-inspired craft project shows you how to DIY recycled, found or store-bought glass items into decorative sea glass bottles, votives and vases…oh my! You’ll capture both the wabi-sabi-ness of naturally distressed glass as well as the beautiful colors of the coast. Add sand, pebbles, candles and/or greenery to bring an air of the ocean to your home’s decor.
