Today I am sharing with all of you how I made my own coastal beach treasures glass display jar. It's very easy to make and even if you don't have a crafty bone in your body...you can make this!
1 large glass pasta jar (this one is an old one that held dry pasta)
3 pieces of dried raffia or roping
1 Chalk Ink Marker - Chalk White
beach treasures that you collected
I bought some dry pasta years ago and kept the jar because it was so large and had a wooden lid. I pulled it out of storage for this project and washed it up. I used 3 different colors of raffia and just wound them around the neck of the jar and knotted the pieces to give it a rustic feel. The raffia reminds me of dried sea grass so that is why I opted for that. Fill up your jar with your collected beach treasures. We spend a lot of time at the beach & I am always collecting my finds so inside my jar are various seashells, pieces of sea glass, sand dollars, starfish, etc.
I then used the Chalk Ink Marker in Chalk White to simply write the words "Beach Treasures" on the wooden lid. You can use the Chalk Ink Markers in whatever colors that you like to write & decorate the lid or the body of the glass container. I liked the simple look for my beach treasures jar. Super quick and incredibly easy!
Mine is displayed on our covered porch/patio and I have it sitting on my birdbath table that I created a few weeks ago. You can find that DIY project here on this blog too! Enjoy!
