Colorful DIY sea glass tray

Theoretically it’s spring and after that summer will be here. It’s still a long way to go but it’s nice to dream about it and to imagine ourselves relaxing in the sun. When you’ll finally be able to do that you’ll want everything to be perfect so you better start preparing. We have a very simple and fun DIY project for you: a sea glass tray.

This beautiful sea glass mosaic tray is a wonderful accessory for any home. It’s also an item that you can make by yourself with just a few simple materials. Simply take a tray or any size or shape, some ready-to-use tile adhesive, premixed grout, a toothed towel, a rubber tile float and a sponge and get to work. With these supplies you’ll be able to create a beautiful and colorful tray to serve your cold beverages onto. Now let’s see the steps.

First you’ll need to apply a thin coat of adhesive to a small part of the tray base. Use a toothed towel and simply comb the teeth through the adhesive. You’ll eventually have to repeat this process for the whole surface of the tray. After you have applied the adhesive put some grout on the rubber float and start pressing and smearing it into the sea glass. It might get messy but you can avoid that by using disposable gloves. After you have pressed the grout on the tray, take a clean, damp sponge and gently remove the thicker layer of grout from the top of the sea glass. At the end you should get a clean and colorful surface. Use a clean wet sponge to clean the glass and you’re done.{found on sandandsisal}.
