Turn an ordinary container into a seashell keepsake box using seashells. It's a fun and easy beach craft for kids and the perfect gift from the sea.

What You'll Need:

  • Shells
  • Craft glue
  • Shoe box

How to Make a Seashell Keepsake Box:

Step 1: Collect seashells of all different sizes, shapes, and colors. You can also find real or artificial shells at a crafts store. Be careful not to collect any shells with the animal still inside them.

Step 2: Turn your shell collection into a work of art that also houses your favorite items. Glue your shells onto a shoe box in the shape of a picture or any design. You can even spell your name in shells on the top of the box.
