Life's Better At The Beach

For me the sweet summertime usually consists of laying poolside, grilling out, strolls in the park, wearing pretty flip flops and enjoying my sun kissed skin after months of looking like a ghost. Summertime also makes me dream of the beach with my toes in the sand and a fruity drink in hand. What could be better?

I am the type of beach bum that thoroughly enjoys spending some of my time collecting seashells. I have used seashells, I have collected from various trips, for different craft ideas. Whether gluing them to a frame, placing them in a jar with sand, or setting them on shelves, I love surrounding myself with seashells because they are simple reminders of a beachy experience.

Below are a few crafty ways to use a bag of pretty seashells.

Simple seashells make great card holders

Use seashells as a decorative soap holder

Hang unique beach findings as garland

Place seashells in a clear vase to enjoy year round

Paint seashells to give them a unique, edgy feel

Happy summertime,
Sarah

What can't seashells do? I recently saw one of those embossing stamps with a shell on it and now I can't stop thinking about it. :)
