Seaglass Ornaments

I made some Christmas 
ornaments with seaglass,
my first attempt to do craft
with this glass.

I took a wooden birch wreath
apart and used the wood to
glue the glass on.

I have not altered the glass in anyway. 
It is as I found it on the beach.




Walking along the beach, 
seaglass can be found 
along the shoreline,
 tossed up by the tides.



Treasures of the Sea

3 sailboats

Good quality seaglass pieces are 
frosted,  with no sharp edges
the result of many years of tossing 
and tumbling in the rough waters of the sea.


Snowman and tree

Sailboat made with bottle bottoms

3 trees - 2 spruce and 1 blue spruce



Most glass found was once part of 
medicine bottles, liquor 
or soft-drink bottles, dishes etc. 

I used a glue gun with hot glue to glue the ornaments.

I displayed these ornaments
on a birch tree.

Thanks for your visit.



  1. These are so cute! I love sea glass. The three little boats are so sweet. I also think the blue glass is stunning. It is such a pretty color.

    1. We are thrilled when we find blue. It is becoming so rare. With plastics and recycling glass, seaglass is dimishing and the pieces are getting smaller and smaller from yrs. in the salt water. Thanks for your visit and nice comment.

  2. These really are cute, Thelma. I seldom see sea glass here because the tourists collect it and other collectors here on the Island. Even though we are surrounded by water, the sea glass is getting more rare to find. I like the snowman with the tree and the love birds are very cute. Thank you for sharing with us. Hugs...Sandi

  3. How clever! The snowman with the tree and the love birds are both favorites of mine. My daughter has a jar of sea glass she collected from PEI and other places. It would be fun to use some of the pieces in a project like this. What type of glue did you use?

    Here you can buy bags of "sea glass" at craft stores; I imagine it is just bits of glass that have been put through some sort of a tumbler. I have used it in various crafts and could use it for this, I am sure.

    1. Hi Mrs. T
      Thanks for your visit. To glue the glass, I used a glue gun. Some of the smaller pieces, like the bird's beak, I used a toothpick dipped in the glue with a tweezers to place it correctly. I will add a photo tomorrow on the blog of the supplies I use. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
      I've never seen seaglass in craft store, in this region, although, now a days, they have everything.
      Happy Thanksgiving from Canada. Thelma.

  4. What a great idea:-)) I didn't know you can make such beautiful decorations out of seaglass!

  6. So beautiful! And so creative of you. Green is my favorite color, so though I love all the sea glass, the green is my favorite.

  7. Thelma, you are so clever and creative. The shapes you imagine are just perfect. I lived by the sea until my early 50's and have never found one piece of sea glass. It is so pretty and you have turned it all into some very pretty ornaments..Stay Well..xxoJudy

    1. Thanks Judy for you visit and nice comment. I did those ornaments last winter to past the time.
      Stay well also. Thelma. xo
