DIY Sea Glass Heart Art

5 Materials
2 Hours

Create your own beautiful framed sea glass heart made from natural sea glass. This is a great way to showcase your beautiful collection of beach glass


  • Box frame,
  • Chalk paint,
  • Acrylic paint,
  • Sea glass,
  • Glue gun

Step 1– Paint the base of the frame with a pale blue acrylic paint, you may need to apply two coats to get a lovely even finish.

Step 2 – Once this is fully dry draw the outline of a heart onto the base. I chose to make a stencil, folding a piece of paper in half and cutting a heart shape in order to obtain even sides.

The heart will remain the base pale blue colour, painting the background graphite.

Step 3 – Once you are satisfied with the heart shape paint the frame and the background with chalk paint. I chose to work with chalk paint as you do not need to prime the wooden frame. I am using the graphite from Rustoleum, a dark grey.

Step 4 – Now for the fun part, arranging the sea glass pieces onto the heart shape on the base. I found it easier to start with pieces along the edge of the heart and then in fill. Arrange all your sea glass before you start to glue down, so you can rearrange if need be.

Step 6 – Lastly adhere the sea glass to the base with a glue gun or string alternative glue.

I hope you enjoy making your own beach glass art picture can a great way of showcasing your beach sea glass collection.
