Making a beach frame is a fun way to use your sea shell collection and create a great keepsake or gift.
What you will need:
- Small wooden frame
- Acrylic paint
- Sea shells
- Permanent adhesive glue like GemTac
Remove glass from frame. Paint frame solid color and let it dry.
Use permanent adhesive glue to decorate outside of frame with shells. You can also use sand for the bottom of the frame. Let dry completely.
Insert the photo and the glass into the frame.
I found this frame for one dollar at Michaels, but there is not a piece of glass in it. They also have wooden pieces painted or not painted in different shapes such as flip flops, sea animals, etc. (These range from 59-99 cents.)
