Hello my friends!
Do you love the frosted look and colors
of sea glass like I do ?
My son brought back a huge jar full of sea glass
from a trip to
You can buy it manufactured but it is so fun to
collect it at the beach.
As a junk collector myself,
I see the beauty in what is
essentially broken bottle trash being
tumbled and smoothed by the waves.
I see a bit of Biblical teaching there!
Here's a quick idea for adding a bit of
Beachy Vibe to your decor-
A friend gave me a bunch of these spice jars a while back and I made these
Well I found one more!
I love the square shape with flat sides.
I have also been saving these jars.
They came from OUI Yogurt.
It's pretty good yogurt too.
I used about a Tablespoon of Mod Podge
mixed with less-than-a-drop each of
green and blue food coloring.
Paint the jar with a thin coat of mixture.
Adjust the color to your liking-
Add more layers until you are happy with the color.
I was working on a hot day and it dried almost too fast!
I had this large shell and I attached it to the cork
using hot glue-
Then added a bit of glitter!
For the label, I used this MERMAID PEARLS button card.
I scanned it and shrunk the card to fit my bottle-
2'' x 3'' or wallet size photo.
I filled the bottle with seashells and
Mother of Pearl buttons and a bit of glitter.
Then added ribbon.
Add some trinkets from vacation-
I sewed some buttons on the ribbon.
Just keep the outside dry.
We visit the beach often-
It's my happy place :)
Have a wonderful week and take care-
