"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Sparkling Sea Glass Wreath

By: Diane Flowers for Styrofoam Brand Foam

Get the beautiful shine in your home with a sparkling sea glass wreath. Diane Flowers lets us show the beauty in our homes with this great creation.

This sea glass wreath is beautiful for summer.  Here are a few more summer wreath patterns you might enjoy:  Easy Sea Glass Wreath, Garden of Eden Wreath, and Seashell Mosaic Wreath.

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Wreaths: 9" x 1-1/4" x 1-1/4"; 6" x 1-1/4" x 1-1/4"
  • Beach glass pieces, three 1 lb. bags
  • White acrylic paint
  • Lightweight cardboard
  • Craft wire, 20-gauge
  • Medium flat paintbrush
  • Disposable palette
  • Water basin
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Paper towels
  • Scissors
  • Wire cutters
  • Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • Thick, white craft glue

 

Instructions:

  1. Trace foam wreaths onto cardboard and cut out. Use glue gun to secure cut-outs to front of wreaths. Paint cardboard white; let dry.
     
  2. Use wire cutters to cut two 6" wire lengths. Twist wire ends together, forming two hanging loops. Use glue gun to glue hanger ends into top center back of each wreath.
     
  3. Working on small sections at a time, use white glue to secure glass pieces to front and sides of each wreath, allowing pieces to overlap. Continue gluing glass to foam to cover surface; glass pieces should not rest perfectly flat against foam. Let dry overnight.

These sea glass wreaths are so,stunning and would be an absolute dream on a summers evening. I have a packet of little plastic glow in the dark stars in a light green that would be a pretty touch glued to this wreath here and there for so,e pretty nighttime glow! I could also see wrapping a cool LED strand of twinkle lights around this wreath for even extra sparkle, of make it a candle centerpiece! Great project, thank you for sharing!

Wow, these wreaths look so cool!

That looks so nice and easy to do ! Thanks

Now i know what to do with all of the sea glass i've collected!!!
