Hello creative friends. What better way to kick off summer [or at least the end of the school year in our house] than with some fun beach glass and a Mod Podge week.
Beach or sea glass is typically found in small bits along the beaches. They were once bottles, jars or other glass objects that have been tumbled around the ocean creating smooth, frosty pieces of colored or clear/white glass. I know you would probably never find an intact beachified bottle or vase lying along the shore but we can pretend these bottles were just plucked from the water.
- To make summer beach glass bottles, you’ll need: Mod Podge, water, white paint, dirt or sand and glass bottles, jars or vases.
- Mix together 1 part Mod Podge, 2 parts water and 1 part white paint. Pour into your bottle and swirl it around until it coats the entire bottle.
- Add a pinch of dirt or sand to the paint mixture by carefully sprinkling it into the bottle.
- Turn your bottles upside down on paper towels and let dry. Check the bottles every 5-10 minutes and wipe away the extra paint.
Once the bottles are almost dry, turn them right side up to finish the drying process.
For more opaque glass use more paint. You can also opt to not add the dirt for a cleaner look.
Add pieces of coral or shells to complete your summer beach look.
Stay tuned this week for more Mod Podge fun. I have new Mod Podge products to share with you, a book review and a fabulous giveaway.
