This is a very simple and inexpensive project to use a few of your treasured seashells and some sea glass if you have it available. Hurricane candle holders or something of that type can be found at Wal-Mart or at a craft store for just a few dollars.
Hold the container upside down and either dip it in glue or put glue around the edge of the opening. Then dip it in sand.
Put a little sand inside and on the bottom of your glass container.
Place a candle in the center.
Drop a few seashells and sea glass on the sand.
Tie a ribbon around the top.
You could add some other type of decoration to the outside if you want. Like artificial flowers or glue a seashell on the ribbon.
