Seashell Frame

To create a Seashell Frame, collect shells along the shore. Put a photo of you playing at the beach inside the frame.

Pick the shells you like the best, but try to find smaller-sized shells that will be able to be glued onto the frame easily. Search for many different colors of seashells, or try to find all white ones -- you can personalize your Seashell Frame any way you choose.

What You'll Need:

  • Seashells
  • Plain wooden picture frame or wooden box (available at craft stores)
  • Craft glue or epoxy

Step 1: Find a variety of small seashells.

Step 2: Glue them on the picture frame. Start in the corners and make the same arrangement in each one. Then glue small shells between the corner decorations.

Step 3: Let the glue set, then put your picture in the frame.

You can also decorate a wooden box with seashells. Just glue the shells on the lid. Give your seashell frame or box as a gift to a friend or family member.
