When the grandkids came to visit us from British Columbia in May 2022 they bought each of us a treasure box. When covid started our trips had to be cancelled so I gave them the challenge of finding a container and adding a beach treasure each time they went out, either a piece of sea glass, a small pebble, a bit of broken pottery etc. We would get it the next time we saw them. Who knew it would be almost 3 years before travel was available again.
We had lots of fun looking through all these treasures and deciding what to do with them all. They even found us a few little bits of the elusive red sea glass which went directly into the little container I keep it in.
I decided to make a sea glass tree in a shadow box. I chose brown sea glass for the trunk and shades of green sea glass for the leaves. After arranging them all first, it was time to use the backing that came with the shadow box to get the right size, glue down all the pieces, let dry and add the shadow box frame.
It looks perfect with the other two shadow box images on the end of the bookshelves.
