sand ceremony frame!!! i found it!!

Recommended Posts

Well I finished my frame using the tutorial I posted. I used elmers glass and ceramic glue, which dries clear and worked pretty well, but it was a little runny. It looks just like elmers school glue before it dries, and has about the same consistancy. It worked, but I would not really recommend it. The flora bond looks like it would do a better job.


I tested it with sugar, which I also would not recommend because now I have little bits of it stuck in the frame that I cannot get out! Oh well! A very small amount leaked out, so I put another bead of glue on each side of the outter pains of glass.


I almost had a heart attack last night when I realized I glued the top shut!! My lovely fiance was able to get it open with his brute strength but I was really freaked out for a minute since we are leaving in four days.



I found two glass bottles at Hobby Lobby half off ($3.99 a piece) and I hot glued some leftover teal ribbon crossed around the neck of the bottle and a tiny starfish I have for centerpieces ontop.


I'm very happy with the way it turned out! Total it cost me about $40 including supplies. Beats $60 they are asking on etsy for just the frame.

My frame held up pretty well. I traveled with it on my lap and carried it through the airports with no problems. Some sand escaped into the front chamber, but it was no big deal since the front pane is removable.


I did have one major issue. IF USING SAND FROM THE BEACH, DRY THE SAND OUT REALLY REALLY WELL BEFORE PUTTING IT INTO THE VASE. You have to either dry it out in an oven or on a cookie sheet in the sun to get it really dry. I was pounding on the vase like a friggin ketchup bottle trying to get the sand out since it packed in there and stuck. I also dinged up the frame a little when trying to knock the sand out of the vase.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
