I used fine sand from our local beach, but you can buy it HERE too and the sand is easily applied using ModPodge (affiliate).

The sand gets sprinkled evenly over the ModPodge around the whole bottle. Do as many coats as needed to get the coverage you like, finishing with a coat of ModPodge as the final one to seal the sand on.

My bottles still needed a little oomph so I wrapped the necks of them with some twine and glued on some small sand dollars, but you can also add more twine, shells, or anything else you'd like.

I was so surprised at how well the ModPodge and sand adhered to the bottles and am in love with how well they came out! You can use all shapes and sizes of bottles or jars and is a quick project that can be done in a day. It's even a great project to do with the kiddos!

    I did something similar a few years back. I have a beach themed bathroom. I took a metal container, drew a wavy line around the bottom and up about 5", painted with mod podge,and adhered the sand below my drawn line. Glued on shells that my in-hlaws would bring back from Florida each year. I still have 5 shoe boxes left and will be doing your idea with some bottles that I have been saving. Thanks for the inspiration!

    One of the people who lives in our old school tossed a pretty alcohol bottle - I snagged it (of course LOL) and was wondering just what or how - got it! TY!
