Scented Sea Glass

source

Did you know that sea glass is very porous, making it perfect for holding fragrance? 

Here's a quick and easy project to add a beachy touch to your home - or to give as a gift for a beach-loving friend!

Gather up your favorite colors of beach glass and place in a food storage bag. Add 2-3 drops of an essential oil such as lavender or bergamot to the bag and shake to coat the glass evenly with the oil.

Pour into a dish or decorative jar. Add shells or smooth beach stones, if you'd like.

Voila! A sweetly scented, beach-inspired touch for any room in your home! (And a perfect crafty project for your weekend!) :)

How have you incorporated sea glass into your craft projects or decor?
