Near a bright window, this beach-glass craft sparkles with color. You can place it on a windowsill or shelf as an ornament or add a hook to the top and hang it as a decoration. This craft project uses real beach glass, but you can also have great results with artificial versions available at many stores or by using light, translucent rocks.
This is a simple craft project to do. Applying each piece of glass one at a time does take some time, so plan accordingly and make sure that you have plenty of glue sticks on hand.
