Five Natural Crafts to Make Using Seashells

This kid-made seashell treasure box, tutorial courtesy of Joyababy blog, is easy to do by upcycling any small box. Give the kids some craft paints or some Mod Podge and magazines, and before long they’ll have the perfect hiding place for their beach treasures.

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.
