How to Make Awesome Crafts with Seashells

Crafts For Kids, Furniture Ideas

It’s time to get ready for the beach, and to slowly start transforming our home into a lovely beach cottage.   How to make awesome crafts with seashells and other beach-related objects has been one of my lifelong pursuits. I love having sweet reminder of the good times by the seaside all around me. That just extends the time I am travelling from ‘a week here and there into all the time.

It’s been a few years ago now that I enjoyed a bit of early sunny summer weather on the Italian coast in Puglia in April. I took this picture at Gargano Park What a beautiful area. And even though in just in April, we did go to the beach to sun tan. The sea was still a little bit too chilly for my liking to swim in however, but that did not stop me from collecting seashells.

And of course, we made some crafts with them when we got home.

Crafts with Seashells

I could be called a bit of a beach nut, looking at how many projects I’ve posted over the years that are themed ‘the beach’ ~ in its various forms: home decoration; beach gear; beach adventure souvenirs; and more. So, today I thought to just create a post with how to make awesome crafts with seashells, as I do feel quite the pro when it comes to that.
