National Craft Month is winding down, but here’s one more easy craft for your spring decorating: Sea Glass Candle Holders. We love everything about the beach and the beauty of sea glass.
The colors are soft, yet rich. We recreated the look of sea glass on four glass items in colors that will pair perfectly with the decorations on our Easter table.
Supplies Needed for this Project:
- glass containers – on-hand items with some purchased from a dollar store
- Elmer’s glue
- food coloring
- paint brushes
- newspaper – to protect your work surface
In a disposable bowl, add 1 teaspoon of glue, 1 1/2 teaspoons of water and your choice of food coloring. Mix well. (We used a drinking straw.) We used 3 drops for each bowl. The ocean blue ( 2 drops blue, 1 drop green) is our favorite!
Simply paint the colored glue mixture on the glass container with a foam brush. We added 4 coats of glue on our containers, allowing 15-20 minutes of drying time in between each coat. Paint on the glue until you achieve your desired color.
Simple, yet beautiful results. The color possibilities are endless!
Add your choice of candle or string of battery lights. We used battery operated tea lights. Happy Easter!
