“Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.”
-Ann Morrow Lindbergh
DIY SEA GLASS VASE
If ever there is a trash to treasure story, it’s sea glass. The once discarded and battered about in the depths of the ocean is transformed into little tiny jewels. An item that is now refined, pretty, and collectible.
Not only are these beautiful pieces of glass now an item to use, but they are full of symbolism.
Unfortunately, we don’t live anywhere sea glass is usually found. To recreate that gorgeous look, we took to making a little DIY sea glass vase with scraps of discarded tissue paper. See what we did here? 😉
Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by C’mon Get Crafty to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies! Everyone is allowed a $10 allowance for necessities to complete their project (i.e. paint brushes, glue, etc), but the bulk of it must be created from their own stash of goodies.
Let’s meet this month’s bloggers!!

- Mason Jar, an old spaghetti jar should work too
- Tissue Paper
- Mod Podge, good value – here is a kit with 2 different mod podges and foam brushes
- Foam Brush
- Battery Tea Light, if desired
- Tear the tissue paper into sea glass sized pieces. Really, don’t overthink it. I just torn small random pieces.
- Taking your clear mason jar, apply Mod Podge to the glass and set tissue on top.
- Repeat this process until you have completed the vase as you like. I only added the tissue 3/4 of the way up. You can do less or more, as you desire.
- Once you have applied the tissue, blot the Mod Podge lightly, on top of tissue, so it all would stay in place.
- Let the vase dry. Note, it will dry fairly fast as you really don’t need a lot of Mod Podge.
- Once it is dry, add flowers or a battery tea light for your beach house vibe.
Super simple right? Oh, I love an easy project. This took like 15 minutes at best.
So, here’s what I want to know……
