I took a plain wooden frame and brushed craft glue liberally along wherever I wanted the sand to stick. I then sprinkled sand over the wet glue and let it dry completely. I gave it a few coats with some clear acrylic sealant. Out came my trusty hot glue gun and I affixed the shells to the corners of the frame. Turned out pretty cute, huh?
I think this would be an awesome way to use sand or shells that you've collected from special trips. Especially if you put a picture in the frame from the trip itself. I'm linking up to Kimba's DIY Tuesday! http://asoftplacetoland-kimba.blogspot.com/
