Sea glass mirror

This was  fun project I did with my daughter. When we go to the beach we always go on the hunt. We have a jar full of different coloured sea glass. She has asked for a while now "what can we do with it?" So we finally got round to making something different.
We gathered and collected what we wanted to use. We also sorted through some shells - aren't they pretty?! 

You will need: wood, mirror, adhesive I used Unibond and a spatula 

We sorted our sea glass into colours. 

I put the adhesive onto the wood. Right into the corners. 

Pushed the mirror into it.

Then my daughter enjoyed pressing the sea glass in. It was fun choosing what colours and shapes to put where. 

Deep in the world of creativity! 

When everything was in place we let it dry for 24hours. 
Then we coveted that with grout. To finish the edges off anx then neatened it off with a damp cloth. 
Let that dry and tada! 
All done. 

Perfect little project for one little girlie!
