Seaside Photo Frame

Had this great picture of Hubby and two of the kidlets that I wanted to frame. I wanted the frame to have a "beachy" feel to it. I took some sand (from the sandbox in the backyard of course!) a bag of small shells that I got on clearance from JoAnne's and hopped to it.
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!


  1. Cute frame! I always love being able to finally frame a picture I have been waiting to frame. Thanks for sharing this!

  2. I'm impressed! You should consider selling those!


I treasure your comments!
