"Hi friends! We’re excited to share this beach-inspired DIY sea glass Christmas tree craft using your sea glass collection that you’ll want to display every holiday season. Collecting sea glass with the kids is one of our favorite things to do when we’re at the cottage. Technically, it’s called beach glass since we’re at the lake (and not the sea) but we’ve gotten accustomed to saying sea glass over the years. Each of the kids takes a little baggie with them to hold all their finds until they can sort them by color when they return home. We could undoubtedly walk for hours combing the beach for treasures. "
