Use a can of sea glass spray paint to make sea glass decor using glass salt and pepper shakers or any clear glass bottles.
I keep a supply of glass salt and pepper shakers on hand because there is so much you can do with them. If you don’t have any shakers or glass pieces head to the thrift store. Speaking of which….today is Thrift Store Decor Day so stay around for the tour.
I selected three shakers in different sizes and painted them with Krylon Sea Glass Spray Paint, color sea foam. I sprayed three light coats of paint on the bottles.
Now, the bottles looked nice but they needed to be decorated.
I went to my stash of seashells and beachy stuff and pulled out a few things to work with.
I found a little bag of real sea glass I ordered on eBay years ago, thinking I would glue some pieces to one of the bottles.
I spread hot glue over the sides of the bottle a little less than halfway up and tried pressing and rolling the bottle over the sea glass. It wasn’t a perfect plan. After many tries and adding more glue to the bottle suface, I was finally satisfied.
For the other two bottles I hot glued various items to them including sisal rope, a seashell, starfish, and twine.
And that was about it for the project. So easy. I have to stop myself sometimes from over decorating items.
The “greenery” is a few branches I pulled from a faux flower stem. I didn’t have any seagrass or beachy-looking greenery to put in the bottles. It works.
I hot glued a small seashell over the sisal rope where it was glued together on the backside of the starfish bottle.
Even though sea glass is beachy or coastal-style decor, the faux hydrangea stuck in the starfish bottles doesn’t look too bad. This project was inspired by the sea glass bottles my friend Sarah, Sadie Seasongoods made.
How about it? Do you like the bottles and the three different looks? Remember to decorate with uneven numbers….1, 3, 5, etc. It’s time to take the Thrift Store Decor Tour. Just click the blog links below the “before” makeovers photo collage….
