Hey there everyone! Welcome to a fun filled and creative post today! I am joining Porch.com today for a Project Under $15 Challenge. I decided to make a Sea Glass Tray Under $15. Along with that, there are five of us that took on the challenge. You will be inspired and enthused to create your own Project Under $15 Dollars.
AS for my project I chose something Summery and colorful to add to my Summer decor.
I wanted to make my own Sea Glass Tray for Under $15. Do you think I can do it???
It was really easy and came out just how I pictured it in my mind.
This is what I used:
sea glass purchased from Pier One
elmer’s school glue
valspar paint- birchwood white
sponge paint brush
a tray I already owned
I started out by painting the tray with the Valspar Birchwood White paint.
Once the paint was dry, I began to place my sea glass in a balanced yet, random pattern.
To adhere the sea glass to the tray, I dabbed the Elmer’s glue on one side to the glass. Then I pressed on the glass so the glue would spread out.
Be care not to add too much glue as it will “leak out” the sides. You just want the glue under the glass.
I didn’t use a grout of filler in-between the sea glass pieces, as they were all the same height. So it is level. Perfect for showcasing Summer pieces.
Once all the glue was dry, I was ready to “play” around and see what I liked to use my new tray for. Of course, sea shells are always my first choice for Summer decor.
BUT, it also looks fabulous in our guest bathroom, doesn’t it?
So, I bet you are wondering how much this Sea Glass Tray cost me, right?
Well, I owned the tray already. It was a gift, actually.
I purchased the glue approximately $2
the paint was $2.95
the sea glass was $7.95
My total cost was $13
AND it looks fabulous!
