Sea Glass and Beach Glass Crafts - Projects and Ideas That You Can Use

Are you looking for ideas on what to do with your sea glass or beach glass?

  • You may have already done some projects or you might still have your sea glass stored up in various containers around the house, garage, or attic.
  • You may not want to leave your collection stashed away in a jar (although that is pretty too), but you're not quite sure what to do with it.

From easy-to-do crafts projects on up, here you'll find unique and attractive sea glass crafts ideas!

Since sea glass shows itself best when light is coming through from behind your glass, you'll likely want a project that can be put in front of a window or other light source.

This might be a creation that can hang in a window or it could be a vase with a  light bulb or candle inside that shines through the glass.

But where to start?

You can't get started if you don't have a good idea, and some of the best ideas pop into your head when you are looking at examples of other's work.

Here on Odyssey Sea Glass, you'll find many sea glass crafts projects that others have contributed. 

Each one is worth looking at. Who knows which one will give you an idea that is just right for your collection?

Also, you can submit your crafts ideas, photos, projects, and see what others are currently doing by clicking here.

Sea Glass Crafts - Ideas, Sea Glass Projects, or Sea Glass Art Possibilities

A lot of people (including myself) like to use their beach glass and sea glass for jewelry, maybe by creating wire wrapped jewelry or creating jewelry using metalsmithing techniques. Read more...

On the other hand, a good many people don't know the techniques or have the equipment for making jewelry BUT would definitely like to create something interesting and personalized, that is, sea glass crafts.

Great! Sea glass (or "beach glass") is ideal for making gifts (for others or for yourself).

For example, I've a friend who loves to collect sea glass but she doesn't really have the time to do anything with it. 

One thing she does do, though, is to put her sea glass in cute little jars and give them as gifts as her way of saying thanks or I'm thinking of you.

You'd be amazed at how attractive sea glass crafts can be, and people love to get them because they make such unique presents. 

That's not to mention the satisfaction YOU have of knowing you're promoting recyclable, eco-friendly gifts.
