For collectors and beachcombers alike, sea glass is a prized commodity. It’s super exciting to find that smooth piece of colored glass in the sand, rubbed shiny by the tossing and turning of the surf. And with all the variety of colors, it’s just not right to shut it away in a drawer, or even worse, leave it on the beach. Check out our collection of 11 DIYs that put these colored bits of magic to good use.
1. Sea Glass Mobile: Oh hey, ombre! This gorg sea glass mobile takes a bit of time, but it is well worth the effort. And if you’re hard-pressed for finding enough ombre tones, the faux sea glass from the craft store works (and looks) just as great. If you don’t want to spend the time making this beaut you can buy it on etsy. (via Our Boat House)
2. Gold-Dipped Ring: We are pretty obsessed with gold-dipped anything, but this DIY has opened our beachcomber eyes. All you need are some ring bands, sea glass, gold paint and STRONG glue. (via You Want Me to Buy That?)
4. Sea Glass Pendant: They call it a “mermaid tear” pendant, but regardless of its so-called mythical origins, none of us would mind wearing a little oceanic magic like this every day. (via Francoise et Moi)
5. Photo Transfer Sea Glass: Transfer your fave insta photos onto some sea glass and use ’em for pendants, magnets or a mosaic art project. Whatever you decide, they’ll bring just the right amount of beachy and vintage to your life. (via Free People)
