ETCETERAS: Sea Glass Succulent Bowl

Sea Glass Succulent Bowl - homework (4)It wouldn’t be summer if I didn’t create some type of beachy coastal d├ęcor piece and this one is a quick and easy. The sea glass is from a floral arrangement I received years ago. The vase was filled with these beautiful glass chips and of course I washed and saved them.

For now, the hot glue is holding and should last through the summer months. After that – I may pop off the glass and give this little bowl a fall makeover.

Thanks so much for stopping by.


  1. This is so beautiful and such a great idea!

  2. What a cute idea! I love the colour of those sea glasses :-)

  3. The sea glass is such an amazing shade! This was a really great way to dress up the plain white bowl.......and removing them to transform the bowl for fall is totally something I would do. Very few of my projects ever stay the way they are for long :) I'm including this pretty project in with my features today at Your Turn to Shine. It is so great to see you share your skills Carolyn!
