Crafts Using Flat Glass Gems

October 12, 2004

Glass gems of various colors.These tables are an easy project and you could even get your kids to help. This can be done on plastic wood or glass. Find your self a pattern for a simple stain glass project. Geometric works best. Lots of patterns can be found on the internet.


Trace your pattern on to your surface. Fill in your design with flat gems. I use silicone caulk as glue as it will stand up to outdoor use. Wait 24 to 48 hours until glue is really dry and gems are firmly affixed. I like to use light color grout, but you can use any color you like. Grout the flat marbles. Now you have a table you will get raves about.

This modern looking statuette seems to be made of glass beads, but it's actually Styrofoam at the core. This keeps the statuette cheap, easy to make, and light enough to put anywhere.

This is for older kids and adults who like shiny baubles to lay around, like me. This craft makes use of the glass rocks you can find in the craft section at Walmart.


I like to get the clear ones.
