20 Crafts to do with the Shells from Your Beach Trip


‘Tis the season!  Hot, sandy, salty beach trips are upon us!  What on earth will you ever do with all those shells you collect?  I got inspired to write this post as we are going to the beach in less than a month!  I can’t wait!!  It’s so overdue.  But like most other people, I am an avid shell collector.  SO that got me to thinking (especially with my new room theme being “Beach”) that I wanted to put these shells to good use versus the typical, oh let’s just leave them in a bag in the garage or back of the closet forever.  So with that in mind, here is a list of things that I plan on doing with the kids and for my room!  Comment with a photo below once you’ve done some of these!  I’m sure I will get a blog post going once some of these are done to show y’all what cute things my family creates!  Make sure to scroll allllll the way through!  There are so many gorgeous things on this list you don’t want to miss!
