How to create a Sea Glass Vase…
I love the light and airy look of sea glass.
Inspired by a recent trip to the ocean… I decided to try my hand at making a Sea Glass Vase.
I used these cute Milk Bottles* from LeisureArts* and Krylon Sea Glass Spray Paint, Aqua*.
The Sea Glass Paint is available in several colors like Sea Glass Ruby*. (I’m thinking Christmas!)
I contemplated the best way to paint my bottle. Because I wanted to also paint the bottom of
the Milk Bottle*, I came up with the idea of inserting a paint roller handle into the bottle.
While the idea was good in theory, it was hard to rotate the jar evenly when spraying.
(see first at tempt picture below↓)
After the first attempt… I got a little smarter and wrapped the handle in paper, making a
snugger fit. (that worked great) I was able to rotate the bottle using the handle as I sprayed
the bottle with short thin coats of paint to avoid drips.
The more coats applied the less translucent the finish will be.
Once painted, I was able to use the handle to aid in drying.
To go with the Beachy Sea Glass look, I wrapped twine around the neck of the Milk Bottle*
and added a small seashell I picked up on the beach. (FYI…vase should be hand washed only)
A perfect addition to the dinner table.

Don’t you love that paint!!!! I’m going to try the bottle too. Looks great!
I just found out they have cranberry. I think that would be lovely around the holidays.
I just looked over at Michael’s website. They have the bottles there!
Wonderful. I saw online that they also have cranberry sea glass paint. I’m going to paint some bottles for the holidays.
Great idea of using the handle wrapped with paper for holding the vase. Painting a bottle is always a challenge.
Thank You. Necessity is the Mother of Invention.
Have a great day.
Now I know how I can paint my mason jars without getting cramps in my hands! Thank you! Plus, these are gorgeous!!
I love the idea of the cranberry sea-glass as there is ( NOTHING ) in my home that is blue.
But cranberry will do the trick…Thanks so much for this idea..Great job..
Do you think this would work on the glass of a French Door?
That I don’t know. I probably wouldn’t, but that’s just me. You might want to try a can on a plain piece of glass. The paint can be scratched.
Those are really awesome ….and I love the look of Seaglass …will be checking out some of that spray paint for my bottles and Vases ……Thanks for posting
Great job. Love it. Did you get the paint at Michael’s?
Thank You. I found the Sea Glass paint at Walmart. They didn’t have all the colors at the time.
Thought of a way to spray paint bottle instead of using something you have to hold in your hand and turn for all over even spraying. Use a longer handle or stick that can be pushed into ground or secured in bucket of sand that you can walk around while spray painting
excellent idea. thanks for sharing.
