I love sea glass and I love the ocean. Our home here is California has a little bit of coastal decor that is light and airy. I wanted to create a little beach retreat in our master bedroom and wanted some sea glass decor. Instead, of buying the expensive Pottery Barn sea glass, I decided to make my own glass. This is a fun and easy project and I’m confident that you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the lovely results! This truly is a really quick project and it requires three items: a glass object like a bottle or vase, paint and a brush. I bought a vase from Ikea and of course, it was very inexpensive.
~ A Note About the Nester ~
When I was a child, my family, and our aunts, uncles, and cousins, would pack up all our food and umbrellas and head to the beach. We would stay all day long and just hang out and play. I have many fond memories of those adventures with my family.
Sea Glass Instructions
Clean the surface with rubbing alcohol and let it dry. Next cover the outside surface with Martha Stewart’s glass paint. It comes in many colors, but the Frostone looks most like sea glass.
Make sure to paint your brush strokes in one direction. Let it dry for about 20 minutes, then apply another coat painting brushstrokes in the opposite direction, this prevents streaking.
