Do you have a jar full of sea glass you aren't sure what to do with?
Well I sure did, until a friend showed me how to display them!
To get started you will need:
Your sea glass and other items you've collected (such as shells and driftwood)
A stick (I used a small piece of driftwood I found but you can also use any ordinary stick you find outside)
Wire (copper wires works well)
String (To hang your art onto the wall)
First cut some wire (you can vary the lengths like I did if you want) and wrap it around your first piece of sea glass. There is no perfect science to this. I found I got better at this the more I did. Wrap it so it has no room to wiggle out.
Continue on the same wire and leave some room at the top to attach it to your stick.
When you are finished with adding sea glass to your wires you can attach them to your stick.
I found that using the wire cutters or a pliers helped to wrap the wire tight around the stick.
Once you've attached all the wires, tie a string or another wire from both ends of the stick so you can hang it on the wall or in your window.
Now your sea glass can be admired and not stuck at the bottom of a jar.
I find myself looking at the uniqueness of all the glass pieces now.
I'm coming to the end of my internship at the high school and I wanted to get the counselors a thank you gift. Being a very organized group of people, they use highlighters on everything. I came across these pencil highlighters by Stubby Pencil Studio on Pinterest and knew they would make a perfect gift!
I used tags from the Packagery store to stamp each of their names onto and used extra pieces of string and yarn to tie the tags to the highlighters.
I got an Eco Highlighter for myself also and find myself using it all the time!
I'm hoping the counselors will love them as much as I do!
Last weekend we headed up to New Hampshire (Only 2.5 hours away). Ryan ran the 5k Obstacle Course Zombie Run as I watched happily from the sidelines taking photos. I plan on running the Color Me Rad 5k later this summer. I'm assuming I will enjoy this more than running from Zombies.
