Make a Sea Glass Pendant

Gail at Can't Stop Making Things posted instructions for making these pretty sea glass pendants. How fun would these be for a wedding favor, wine glass charms, or as a bridesmaid gift? Gail even found her "sea glass" in the flower arranging section at the dollar store. [full project instructions here]

If you don't already have them, you can find wire cutters and needle nose pliers at some dollar stores (they're in the craft section of my local store). You can also usually find some kind of all-purpose glue that can be used on glass in the tool section.

Project Estimate:

  • Beach glass, $1
  • 16 gauge wire, $1-2
  • 24 gauge wire, $1-2
  • Metal charm (optional), $1
  • Gel super glue, on hand
  • Wire cutters & needle nose pliers, on hand

Total: $3 and up

    Wow, I can believe you can make something that looks that neat for so little. I’m not sure if I would make them into wedding favors only because it seems like that would take a lot of time to make each one but maybe I could have a party with my friends and get them done!

    I LOVE the idea of making them into wine glass charms, they would look so cute! I’ve really been into handmade pendants lately. This, however, is the first one I actually might go try and make after I get out of work today. I don’t have a whole lot of confidence in my crafting skills yet but I do enjoy trying new patterns and this Idea seems to inexpensive to not give it a shot!

    Thanks for sharing this pattern, I think I have some wine glass charms to go make!

    @haley, you can hang it on a chain, a leather or ribbon cord, etc. Pretty much anything goes!
