seaglass arrangement

October 31, 2010

When we attended the Roundtop Antiques Market last fall, Cristy saw a little twig of a tree made from metal and casually mentioned that it would be pretty if we decorated it with seaglass.  She has a small seaglass collection and we love to find ways to bring the peacefulness of the ocean into our home.

As we looked at the metal tree, it seemed that we could accomplish the same outcome with natural branches.  And when we got home, we did exactly that.

 First we gathered a bouquet of slender branches and our stash of seaglass pebbles.   

We wrapped narrow gauge utility wire around small pieces of sea glass.

Then suspended them individually and in clusters from the boughs with a loop of silver thread. 

This is perhaps my absolute favorite home sweet homemade arrangement.  It’s like a bouquet of ocean gifts.

Thank you so much for reading🙂

    Oh, how magical and whimsical!

    LOVE! LOVE! LOVE this!

    The sand in the base of the vase is the PERFECT touch!

    You GO, girls!

    Oh my gosh I love it! I don’t live by the beach anymore! Do you buy your sea glass or do you collect it?

      This is my partner’s seaglass collection. For this project, we used seaglass she had purchased on eBay. They are very small pieces of all colors. She has a collection of items she has personally found, but she is keeping these for jewelry projects. Commercially produced glass (from Michael’s) would work well too, although the colors are probably far more uniform.

    That is really simple and pretty. My kids would love to do that! They are always collecting bits and bobs on our wanders. We don’t have any beach glass big enough, but I think a few pretty rocks and feathers would do just the trick.
