One of my favorite things to do at the beach is to hunt for sea glass. I sort the colors of glass and then turn them into works of art in the form of mosaics. Here are a couple of projects I made using sea glass.

I love to collect the sea glass at the beach, I have my favorite spots in the Pacific Northwest - namely on Vancouver Island.
Sea Glass Vase
The first project is a sea glass mosaic on an upcycled glass jar.
Learn how to make this sea glass jar in this video below.
I started off by cleaning an empty salsa jar and removing the label. I then etched the glass with Etchall dip 'n etch to help the glue stick to both sides of the glass (the jar and the sea glass). It also gives the jar that does not have the sea glass stuck to it a sea glass look, like the jar was tumbled as well!
I next laid out a general template of what I wanted the mosaic to look like on a sheet of paper that was the same length and height as the jar. Then it is just all about adding the epoxy glue to the jar and placing on the sea glass.
Last is to add a little bit of rope at the top to finish it all off and complete the look.
The vase even looks cool from the inside where you can see the reverse of the mosaic.
You can use this vase for flowers, collecting more sea glass, sea shells, or really anything you want!
Sea Glass Wave Mosaic
The second project is a framed art prices with a sea glass wave.
Learn how to make this mosaic art in the video below.
I started with a stenciled phrase made bold with a black marker.
I then added the wave of sea glass adding in colors of white, green, and blue (which is the hardest to find).
Last I painted the frame to match the color tones of the sea glass, my favorite blue sea foam color.
What will you make with your found sea glass?
