If your Summer fun involves a trip to the beach, you’re probably coming home with a bucket full of carefully collected shells! They are beautiful, natural, and free! But when you get home, sometimes they just end up sitting in a bucket in the garage. Instead, why not put your beautiful shells to good use?! You can make them into fabulous gifts or staples of beautiful coastal décor to enjoy from home all Summer long!
This is a simple and beautiful craft that is perfect for any coastal décor!
If your little one has insisted on bringing tons of shells home from the beach, why not craft with them?!
