It’s time for the February Monthly Craft De-stash Challenge and I’m sharing a DIY mini bottle tumbled glass necklace.

What’s the craft de-stash about? It’s a monthly blog hop, hosted by Megan at C’mon Get Crafty where a group of bloggers try to create projects using existing craft supplies. We are allowed a $10 allowance for any supplies needed to finish our projects. I usually don’t spend money for these challenges, but I needed mini glass bottles and mini screw eyes. Thus, the total spent for this project was $3.5o for the mini bottles + $1.5o for the screw eyes = $5.00 (don’t forget to use coupons).

For January’s craft de-stash, I shared a DIY ‘LOVE’ Nautical Knots using tumbled glass. This month, I’m continuing with the coastal/beach theme with a tumbled glass necklace that uses the smallest bits of tumbled glass.

DIY Mini Bottle Tumbled Glass Necklace

For this project, I used tiny bits of tumbled glass that normally go unused from my tumbled glass stash. I tumble my own glass using recycled bottles. What I use –>> rock tumbler + grit

FYI – this pendant is meant for adults and teens. Not recommended for young children or toddlers due to the fragile materials used in this project.


  • Mini Glass Bottles
  • 5mm x 11mm Mini Screw Eyes (skip if the bottles already have these)
  • Tumbled Glass Bits
  • Craft Glue
  • Chain/Necklace
  • Optional – sand and mini sea shells

How to:

Eye hook in cork

The mini bottles I bought did not have any eye screws, so I had to add it. All I did was to add a dab of craft glue on the screw portion of the eye screw and twist it into the cork. Let dry.

Tumbled glass in the mini bottle

While the screw eye is drying, add the tiny bits of tumbled glass into the bottle. Fill the bottle up as little or as much as you like. Optional – add sand and sea shells. 

Add glue to cork top

Run a tiny amount of glue on the bottom edge of the cork. Now, push the cork back into place and add a chain. Optional – add raffia, twine, or paint to the top of the glass bottle (see pic).
