  1. What a pretty candle holder, sea glass really is shown off to best effect like this.
    Sea glass is definitely one of those things where, if you do spot it on a beach, it’s just rude not to pick it up, take it home and use it for a lovely craft!

    1. I an having a hard time finding any around here in Hilton Head Island, but need to go to a beach someday with lots of them. Thanks so much Julie.

  2. This is so pretty and so simple to make. I can’t wait to go beach combing on my holidays and see what I can find!

  3. I decorate my home with a beachy vibe, nothing can say “BEACH” but I use blues, soft yellows and lavender in my home. This would be gorgeous on a table. I also have a cutting garden, and I think it would make a beautiful vase.

    1. Perfect I hope you make it. thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such a nice comments.

  4. What a beautiful handmade candleholder, Maria! The colors are so serene and calming – much like the waters around the beaches!

  5. E6000 is a brilliant glue for sea glass – it works so well. Ive added the project to my sea glass round up post 🙂

  6. My God, I remember doing this when I was little and we went to my aunt, who lived near the beach!! I loved doing this so much! And I also remember for Halloween I glued dried pumpkin seeds on a small black vase. It turned out very atmospheric and cool. But your stones look incredible!! What cool colors!! I think your article is a hint that I will need to collect stones on the coast in the summer and do something similar. In fact, it’s so easy to do! I love these things. It’s very cute and you can feel the soul in such crafts.
