Great ideas for sea glass crafts! It should be noted for clarification, though, that the glass in some of the projects shown does not fit the definition of sea glass (naturally tumbled, rounded, and frosted).

Keep on keepin' on!

Jessica said...

Thanks for all the ideas with sea glass. We love sea glass here too on the West Coast; me and the kids always search for some. Recently my 6 year old just started making his own sea glass projects: wrapping pieces with fine wire and stringing many pieces together to create a hanging piece. Looks great on windows held by a suction cup. Very pretty.

is there another link for making the sea glass wreath? I tried it and it did not work.

Thanks,

Melissa, unfortunately this happens often. Online sites delete things and/or make changes. If only the link has changed, you might find the wreath on the site (ivillage) via search..., using terms such as beach wreath, wreath tutorial, etc. Hope this helps! Thanks for stopping by!!
