If you have ever taken a long stroll on the beach, you have undoubtedly encountered plenty of sea glass. It’s almost impossible to overlook, given its beautiful colors, usually ranging in the shades of blue and green, sometimes even transparent or reddish.

Here are some inventive DIY sea glass projects you can use them for!
