Sea Glass Table Lamp - Sea Glass Craft Project

A Sea Glass Table Lamp is a great way to use your collection of sea glass that doesn't require a lot of time or materials and really is one of the nicest ways of showing off your collection!

Here is how to easily assemble a sea glass lamp.

Most of us have used glass jars or other glass containers to store and display our sea glass.

A fillable glass lamp is particularly effective with sea glass because of the light shining through and highlighting the colors of the beach glass.


1. Keep your eye out for one of those lamps that have the clear glass body or clear glass base. You might check the local thrift store and garage sales.

2. Take the lamp apart and fill the body or base with your sea glass, some shells, sand, etc, and you have a nice display for your sea glass.

3. A light source in combination with your sea glass is probably the best way to effectively bring out that special warm glow that makes beach glass so delightful.

Make more than one. It's even more effective if you can find several other lamps that can be used in this way to give a balance to the decor in your room or home.

DIY Fillable Lamp Kit

If you want to start from scratch, you can create a custom lamp with your own lamp base or favorite bottle.

A DIY lamp kit like the one shown below makes it fairly easy.
Side hole in lamp socket means no drilling of glass bottle for lamp wire to pass through.

The kit includes all the parts that you need as well as instructions for assembly.

Included are 3 different size rubber adapters for various bottles (1/2", 3/4" and 15/16" diameter size) plus the cord set & fittings.
