Five Natural Crafts to Make Using Seashells

seashell garlandAs a party decoration or in a beach-themed room, a seashell garland, like this one from Completely Coastal, is a simple accent. And if your shells don’t already have holes in them (most of these holes come from carnivorous mollusks that secrete an acid that dissolves the shell so that they can get into the tasty insides–just sayin’), then you get to use power tools!

Honestly, I wouldn’t rule out using this garland on my Christmas tree this year. It’s that cute.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
