I was actually busy doing something else, when I stumbled across some sea glass photos and sea glass CRAFTS on Pinterest. Before I knew it, I was browsing away, looking at this oh so pretty beach side find. Oh how I love SEA GLASS!! So beautiful. Such a fab find. Now let’s take a look of what creative projects you can make with this colorful glass!
Needless to say, Sea Glass isn’t always that easy to find. You have to be lucky to land on a beach that has some.. and then it takes some patience and dedication… But luckily you can actually buy Sea Glass now – be it rainbow sea glass to buy or whimsical frosted sea glass to buy. If you are buying in the UK – head to ebay!
Luckily for us, my daughter and I can spend HOURS looking for sea glass in the sand when visiting the beach. Happy days!

Let’s begin with a couple of our projects here on Red Ted Art, which I feel are especially suitable to kids of all ages!
Turn summer memories into Keepsake Ornaments – these Sea Glass Ornaments are SUPER easy to make! And a gorgeous memento of your holidays!
We also had great fun with our Sea Glass Art Project! This was a lovely wall art project that my daughter still cherishes. A little PVA glue (white glue) was great for adding the sea glass and also acted as a varnish!
A while back we included wrapped sea glass and seashells in our mermaid themed decorations, a lovely way to display these beach find treasures.
More Sea Glass Ideas & Inspiration from around the web!
Now it is time to look at some of the sea glass tutorials from around the web for some more wonderful inspiration!
Lovely (Round) Seaside Mobile – this looks like an easy make – and the sea glass doesn’t need to be drilled. Bigger, uneven pieces are better to be able to secure and tie the string around it! I love the use of an embroidery hoop as the mobile!
