Sea Glass Wreath

~ craft project submitted by Christine in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico

 "I moved to Mexico about 3 years ago and live right near the beach.  When I was there I noticed a lot of sea glass and decided to collect it. 

After a while I had so much that I wanted to do something with it besides put it in a jar. 

Sea Glass Chimes/Suncatcher - So I came up with a few things like this one and I'd like to show you what I made.

Sea Glass Wreath - I made this wreath from a piece of styrofoam that I cut out and then glued on various shades of blue green and white sea glass. I topped it off with 4 starfish to make it a little unique."

Sea glass wreath
by: Anne

I love the wreath. I make shell wreaths and wondered if it could be done with sea glass. This gives me inspiration. I use cane wreaths which give a rounded look.

Drilling Sea Glass
by: Christine

To drill the glass I use my dremel with a diamond bit , I think it's 1.5, i have a pan of water with a piece of wood in it. Take the glass and hold it on the piece of wood, be careful with your fingers. I start to drill on an angle and then straight up after a few seconds. Make sure the water is covering the glass slightly and don't press hard on the glass with the bit. When it's about halfway through I turn it over and drill very lightly until the 2 holes meet. Some pieces are harder and take longer, but just be patient.

Sensational Suncatcher
by: Marylyn(SuperNan)

Love your great photo showing the mobile creation to perfection.

The suncatcher itself is simple and not cluttered. I love it!

I agree with Elevlyn,

How do you not break the glass drilling the hole?

I love the idea of The Sea Glass Wreath as my collection is getting out of hand, great way to display our finds instead of locking them away in a dark cupboard

Thanks for sharing.
