I really love sea glass. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to use those lovely shards of sea glass to diy a magazine holder that feels and looks substantial, summery, and elegant.
sea glass magazine holder
- Magazine Holder
- Spray Paint (I used Rustoleum’s Ocean Mist, Gloss Finish)
- Sea Glass Shards (purchased from Michaels Crafts)
- E6000 Glue
Spray paint your magazine holder till it’s covered evenly and opaquely.
Sort sea glass shards and identify a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes that will create variation.
Begin gluing down the sea glass onto the magazine holder. Imagining the pieces fitting together like a loose puzzle. Many of mine only touch at one area. As you glue down the sea glass press on them lightly to eliminate any air bubbles.
Let each side of the magazine holder dry with the wet side facing up before you continue to the next side. If you don’t let it dry then the shards will be gin to slip and become displaced. I let each side dry for a few hours and then moved on to the next.
Then, ta-da! You have a lovely summery magazine holder!
The magazine holder feels substantial and nicely weighted, making it harder to tip over in high traffic environments.
