Do you love spending time at the shore? Do you line your pockets with seashells and take millions of photos of ocean sunsets? If you are drawn to the smell of salt water and the sound of crashing waves, these beach themed crafts will be a huge hit!!
Beach Themed Crafts
When I was growing up, I lived right on Long Island Sound. I regularly went to the beach after dinner with my mom to walk on the sand and look for sea glass. I ended up with bowls of shells, smooth stones, and some wonderful memories. If you will be at the beach this summer, consider a few of these beach themed crafts to celebrate the ocean in a decorative way. Remember, however, that animals like sand dollars and star fish should NOT be brought home! Stay out of protected areas and take only a few small mementos from your beach journey! If you are still looking for more craft inspiration, check out my collection of easy crafts and grab your glue gun!
