We had the incredible opportunity to live there for five glorious years.  The sea glass in the photo above next to my newly made sea glass mason jar is my collection gathered on the cool cold sandy beach.  Pismo Beach is between LA and San Francisco with a bit more San Francisco weather.

I loved it!

So here’s my attempt.

Supplies I used were mod podge, food coloring, paper plate, skewer, soft bristle paint brush, and a mason jar.

Sea-glass-mason-jar-courtry-design-styleI poured about 1/4 cup of the mod podge in the paper plate and added two drops of blue and one drop of green food coloring.  I used the skewer to mix the colors into the glue.  Then painted the outside of the jar.  The soft bristles reduce the streaks from the brush.

Then watched a movie…

and completely forgot about the sea glass mason jar!

Sea-glass-mason-jar-courtry-design-style-3 #seaglassmasonjarAfter the movie, we watched “At Middleton,” the jar looked like this!  Perfect, no second coat needed!

Sea-glass-mason-jar-courtry-design-style-4I painted the rim of the jar using soft grey paint.  Then rubbed on touches of white with my finger and splattered on a bit of black.  I glued two seashells to the ends of twine.

Sea-glass-mason-jar-courtry-design-style-6I added sand and a tea light to the jar, screwing on the rim and tied on the twine.

Pismo Beach is 516 miles away, but I’m enjoying my sea glass and sea glass mason jar here in the pine trees of Arizona.

Sea-glass-mason-jar-courtry-design-style-5I placed everything on the mantle with my Inspired burlap art.
