DIY Beachy Vases or Votives | Easy Beach Decor | Dollar Store Craft

I bought these glass votive holders, but they could also be vases. I found them at Dollar Tree and wanted to give them an easy beachy makeover. If you watch my channel, you know I love anything beachy!

If you don't have a Dollar Tree nearby, you can find what you need on Amazon:
- Glass votives:
- Martha Stewart frost glass paint:
- Makeup sponges:

You can find the full directions, with all the specifics at the link at the bottom of the post.

To see how I made them, you can watch the quick video:
Here are the highlights:
Get some square vases. I found them at the Dollar Tree. I found them very similarly priced on Amazon and linked it above.
Clean them.
Dab on the paint with makeup sponges. Do thin coats.
It will take multiple coats.
Once dry, they look just like beach glass! You can almost feel the sand between your toes and smell the salty air!

I have 100's of craft and DIY tutorials. You can find them on my YouTube channel, or on my website that has an easy-to-find-what-you-are-looking-for directory.

    Thank you for a beautiful design. I couldn’t tell from your video what kind of paint you used or can use. I would appreciate knowing more. Thanks!

    The Martha Stewart Frost Paint is no longer available on Amazon - is it still be sold anywhere else or is it discontinued?

    Before even seeing your blog I did this with clear wide mouth plastic jars! I drilled holes in the bottoms, painted them, and use them for succulent planters on my window sills. The screw on tops became the drip pans.
