Time for Seashells

I am finally back from the beach…it was a kid-filled week of sand, sun, and seashells.

I always collect shells, but never actually do anything with them. Here are some good seashell crafts…ones that I could actually live with!


These easy-to-find shells make great butterfly wings. Found via The Long Thread.


What a gorgeous reminder of a beach week! Shell candles from Country Living.



Turn shells into a garland and I'm in love! Both images found at Completely Coastal

Whole thing

If you find a lot of beach loot that doesn't exactly match, this is a great solution. Found via The Crafts Dept


Poppytalk found these very cool French illustrations, teaching shell crafts.
