Make Your Own Sea Glass

Make Your Own Sea Glass Coastal Craft



We love sea glass and am pretty sure that you do too. Unfortunately in three and a half years I've discovered exactly ONE piece on our beach (sad face).  We have lots of Pacific Sand dollars; but not much sea glass. When I realized that you can actually make your own sea glass I was overjoyed.   

Don't get me wrong, I'd still prefer the real thing but sometimes imitations have to do. 


Here's a photo of my one piece of treasured sea glass...

Make Your Own Sea Glass Coastal Craft

According to BeadInPath.com, "Save up your wine bottles, glass jars, beer bottles and any other interesting glass you have. Milk of Magnesia comes in gorgeous blue. You’ll notice that some really fun glass comes from liquor bottles. Visit a pub and ask if they’ll save the bottles for you. Or visit your local thrift shop and ask them if they’ll save broken glass stuff in a box for you to come get once a month. Or… pass the word along to your friends and family that you’re in need of glass."  What a great way to recycle!

Visit Bead in Path for all the details of making your own sea glass.

Have you created your own sea glass?  

I think this would be a great way to introduce kids to crafts and recycling! 

What do you think?

  1. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm going
    to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something
    completely unique. P.S My apologies for
    being off-topic but I had to ask!

  12. Imitation sea glass is fine for decorating. The only problem with craft sea glass is that some people buy and sell it as the real thing.
    I don't think you can imitate the texture of real sea glass or the frost.
