How to make Sea Glass Christmas Decorations

November 24, 2017

Welcome to my first recycled and rustic DIY Christmas decorations for this year. I love Christmas, the build up, the decor, celebrating time with loved ones. There’s always a but, I’m not so keen on the consumerism. The adverts persuading us Christmas will not be perfect without spending money. Here’s to making, reusing, using what you have to create new items, far more creative and fun.

Back in the spring, we visited France, we spent hours combing the beach collecting sea glass, with no clear idea what we would use it, for now, seems a perfect time to have a think/play. At the time the thought of sea glass Christmas decorations was at the back of my mind… here’s the result.


Sea Glass Christmas Decorations


Cut slices of log approximately 5-6 diameter and a centimetre thick.

Drill a small hole for threading a ribbon through for hanging your decoration.

Sand your wood log slices.

Create a paper stencil, draw around a round object and carefully cut out.

Spray one side of your stencil with a spray adhesive ( i used ), press onto your log slice.

Spray with white chalk paint.

Play with your shapes of sea glass.

Use a strong adhesive to attach your sea glass to your log slices.

Thread ribbon through your pre-drilled hole, tie a knot and you are ready to hang your decorations. Simple yet effective.

    What a great idea. I enjoy picking up weathered sea glass, but never know what to do with it.
