We all want to add a little sparkle to our resin geode art. Real gemstones and crystals can be expensive and the crushed glass you find in craft stores, and glass glitters come in small bags but not for a small price. There has to be a way to DIY the crushed glass yourself.

Good news – there is! It’s quick and easy and you don’t need a lot of tools to do it.  A pan for the stove, a lid, a bowl of iced water, an old cloth and a hammer. Best to have some safety glasses too, just in case.

Here’s how you can make your own crushed glass quickly and easily.

Get your glass nuggets here and smack ’em!
