Michele sent in photos of three separate art/crafts projects that are "renewable" or temporary:

Sea Glass Gingerbread House

Sea Glass Wreath

Sea Glass Turtle

These are "renewable." In other words, after the newness wears off, Michele reuses her sea glass for a new project.

Gingerbread House

Michele writes:

Steps to make this gingerbread house out of sea glass:

1 - I made the house out of poster board using straight pins to hold it together.

2 - Then I used real frosting and lathered on the "house".

3 - The windows are real candy canes.

4 - Then I simple put the sea glass on like a jigsaw puzzle.

The chimney is a bottle top I found in Bermuda, everything else was glass from Melbourne Beach Florida.

When the holidays are over I will wash of the glass and return it to my collection.
