Place a bit of gravel into the bottom of a plastic jar (clean peanut butter jars are perfect). Add a few small sea creatures and add as much glitter glue as you desire. Fill the remainder up with water. Add a bit of glue to the threads on your lid to keep it from opening and tighten back on. Aquarium sealant would of course go further in ensuring it’s waterproof ability.Voila! Ocean in a bottle!
