If beach combing has been part of your summer mission and beach glass your bounty, then these summer craft projects will be right up your alley. From our summer bookazine, SUMMER with Matthew Mead, these sea glass projects are easy, fun and oh-so-doable.
Today, Matthew will be chatting with Pat Sloan via her FREE internet radio show, American Patchwork & Quilting with Pat Sloan. Tune in here to listen at 3pm Eastern Time (2 pm Central, 1 pm Mountain, 12 noon Pacific). After the live show, we will post a link to the interview in case you missed it! Matthew and Pat will be discussing, among other things, creative summer projects including the three beach glass projects below:
Sea Glass Cake Stand:
Hot-glue sea shells to the edge of a glass cake stand bearing oh-so-fitting shell-shaped cookies.
Sea Glass Wreath:
The watery blue, green, and clear shades of a collection of translucent sea glass bring coastal style to any project. Adhered to a wire wreath form using epoxy and hung from an organza ribbon, the glass adds an ethereal quality to a rustic backdrop of a simple wooden door.
Use beach glass sourced from a craft store to add color to a vase of fresh flowers. The shimmery glass hides the stems and adds color and light. Place in front of a window for added sparkle.
