These sea glass, shells and vintage mason jar votives were pretty easy to make - once we had all of the supplies assembled!
*tiny drill We used Kristy's jewelry dremel (and her expertise!) to drill tiny holes in the seashells to adorn the outside of our jars.
*Votive Candles - In glass, not just the candles by themselves. I found white vanilla ones at Michaels for a very reasonable price.
*shells. We did buy a few packages from our local dollar store, but between my mom and I, we have piles of them that we have been collected from beach walks in Florida, Texas, and Washington. I tried to use as many local Puget Sound ones as I could. We filled over 30 jars and just did not realize how many shells it actually takes to fill them up!
Bedrock Industries. We specifically picked out colors to match the theme of the party; lavender, light aqua and a pretty Caribbean turquoise-blue...
We layered the seashells and sea glass to about 2 inches deep before setting in the glass votives. Then layered in more shells and glass around the candles to keep them standing up straight in the jars.

What a darling idea!!! I'm sure the guests LOVED taking that special gift home...they will use it for a long time!!!! I especially like that you even put a voive candle in the jar. How Beachy!!!
Those turned out great! Super party idea. My daughter recently made something very similar for me except for the raffia. I added a couple of inches of water into the jar as well. I have it sitting on my bathroom sink and its so pretty.
