Sea Glass: Mix 2 parts glue with 1 part water. For these jars I used 3 tablespoons glue and 1 1/2 tablespoons water. Add your food coloring drops plus 1 drop of dish soap. This is important! It gave it just the right texture! Stir together. Give jar a LIGHT coat of paint. Streaks will disappear when dry.
Elaborate bouquets have their place, but I think the loveliest arrangements are often the simplest — unadorned blooms in unassuming vases. Causal groupings and a variety of vessels create indoor display that imitate the wild blooms outdoors. And the best part? You probably already have the vases right in your kitchen!
Shell jars. Wondering what to do with the shells your children gather at the beach? Reuse jelly jars to make keepsakes. I hot glued ribbon around the lid edges and make labels on top with our destination and date. The jars I used were grilling sauce jars from American spoon, but any jar will work as long as you can fit your shells inside.
